Omnivoracious Sweepstakes: Win Our 2008 Editors' Top 10 Books

 That's right: like soda pop companies and magazine distributors, we at Omnivoracious now have our own sweepstakes. This month, to celebrate our new daily email digest (and to encourage you to subscribe to it), we're offering the prize of a complete set of our Editors' Top 10 books of 2008 (as seen in our Best of 2008 store) to one lucky reader who subscribes to the Omnivoracious email digest by March 23, 2009. (If you've already subscribed, first of all, bless you, and second, you can make yourself eligible too by filling out the entry form with the same email address you subscribed with.) You can find the entry form and all the rules here.

Omni-sweepstakes_post-imageBut what about the prize? It's a fat stack of fantastic books--I know because they were sitting on the floor behind my chair until they took them away to take the picture--4,592 pages worth, to be exact. You'll find Sheffielders in the '70s, Franklins and Orthogonians in the '60s, seducers of the innocent in the '50s, and anarchists in the '00s. You'll go to Dublin, Northern England, Iraq and Afghanistan, Greenwich Village, San Clemente, Chicago, rural Wisconsin, and the mountains of North Carolina, and on road trips through eastern Europe and the American West. You may decide, like one customer, that The Forever War, our #4 pick, will "become the classic book of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars," or you may agree with another customer that our favorite book of the year, The Northern Clemency, was "irritatingly dull." Either way, you won't have paid a cent!

Here's exactly what our fabulous prize includes (here's my original post announcing the list in November):

  1. The Northern Clemency by Philip Hensher
  2. Hurry Down Sunshine by Michael Greenberg
  3. Nixonland by Rick Perlstein
  4. The Forever War by Dexter Filkins
  5. The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski
  6. The Likeness by Tana French
  7. Serena by Ron Rash
  8. So Brave, Young, and Handsome by Leif Enger
  9. The Lazarus Project by Aleksandar Hemon
  10. The Ten-Cent Plague by David Hajdu

If you're really feeling lucky, or just want more Amazon editors' posts delivered in your in-box every day, visit the other Amazon blogs listed on the bar at the top of any Omnivoracious page: we're also giving away DVDs, CD box sets, an Elmo, and some insane and crazy gadgets I can't even understand. Best of luck to you, and thanks for reading. --Tom
