Like many others, I watched the new Netflix series Orange Is the New Black this month, and was impressed by the show's exploration of privilege, class, and race. The show intrigued me enough to pick up Piper Kerman's memoir (with the same title), its inspiration.
For a chance at winning this book and a $100 Threadless gift certificate, leave a comment with the name of a book that would be perfect for a television series adaptation.
One winner, chosen randomly from the commenters, will receive the following prizes:
Piper Kerman's new book Orange Is the New Black
A $100 Threadless gift certificate to buy book-related t-shirts like Storytellers, The Best Channels Since 1465, Fahrenheit 451, Brainy Rainbow, or Word!, and music-related t-shirts like Death Note, Funkalicious, Music Snob, or anything else that catches your fancy.
If you have already have this book or it doesn't interest you, I am happy to substitute a second $100 Threadless gift certificate.
The winner will be chosen randomly at midnight ET Friday evening (July 26th).
