Celebration is in order and congratulations are due to Beachreader, winner of the Grand Prize in the Birth Year Reading Challenge. Beachreader read 7 books to qualify for the drawing of a single lucky name from among the 3 participants with the most candles.
A collectible first edition, first printing copy of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao (winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award and the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction) will be on its way to her ASAP.
Look for a new version of the Birth Year Reading Challenge to be announced soon (just as soon as C.S. and I determine this year's rules).
