First of all, congratulations to Bob W. of Chantilly, VA, winner of last week’s book, Long Shot, by Mike Piazza and Lonnie Wheeler. Thank you all for your comments.

A reminder about the rules:

  1. The fifth person to post a comment on the sitenot as a “like” or comment on Facebook (although that’s greatly appreciated) or any other social media or via e-mail — wins. Comments do not have to pertain to the particular post you are currently reading but they do have to be related to the overall scope of the blog, please; no “My team’s great, your team sucks” nonsense. Y’all have been good about that. Keep it up.
  2. If you’ve won a book in the last three months — and you’ll know who you are — you can’t win again. Share the wealth. That doesn’t mean you can’t comment, though. Please do.
  3. Not mandatory, but I would appreciate the winners taking a picture of him- or herself with their giftee so I can post it on the blog. Doesn’t that sound like fun?
  4. That’s it. Simple enough, no?

Have at it.

Be sociable, share the Bookshelf!
