Winning books in unreaderly times

A few months ago I had the opportunity to read a book put together by my friend Kevin Smokler called “Bookmark Now”. The book is subtitled “Writing in Unreaderly Times” and is a collection of essays by young authors about how they fell in love with reading and writing and decided to make a living doing it — despite competing media like television and the internet, and our increasingly short attention spans.

I really enjoyed the book, and reading the stories made me want to start reading a lot more — now, thanks to Kevin and his publisher, there’s a way to win a collection of great books chosen by the authors of “Bookmark Now.” It’s a cool idea: 15 of the authors have recommended their own favorite books, and they are holding a contest to give away copies of all 15 of those books.

All you have to do to win the contest is to recommend your own favorite book(s). If your entry is chosen at random, you win a library of books that come highly recommended. So what are you waiting for — click this link now!

Seriously, in an earlier blog post about the book I called Kevin a modern-day ambassador for the written word, and this is just one more thing he’s doing to earn that title. He’s doing some really cool stuff and I couldn’t be more excited for him. I’m definitely looking forward to reading some of the books on this list, and I hope you’ll check it out, too.
