OK, this didn't work so well the last time, so let's try again.
The book "The Comeback Season" was written by Jennifer Smith, who went to the same college I did. The book was reviewed on this site by BCB reader akbeck98 back in March, and I have also read it. It's excellent, geared at teenage readers, but a good read for any Cubs fan.
Jennifer's having a contest to drum up interest in the book; you can win Cubs tickets or a signed copy of the book.
Now, if that's all OK with all of you, here are the details:
In honor of the recent publication of The Comeback Season,
and the amazing season the Cubs are having this year, we're having....
The Comeback Season CONTEST!
1st Prize: 2 tickets to the Cubs vs. Astros game on 9/3/08 at 7:05 at Wrigley Field
2nd Prize: A marked-up copy of The Comeback Season, with notes from the author
3rd Prize: A signed copy of The Comeback Season
There are three ways to win!
1. Let me know that you told at least 10 people about the contest via blog or email
2. Send a photo of you reading the book
3. Send a receipt showing that you bought the book
Send all entries to thecomebackseason (at) gmail (dot) com
Winners will be chosen on August 12th, 2008 by random drawing
(* If you win 1st prize, but don't live in Chicago, you can opt for the Cubs tickets to go to the next person, and you'll get a marked up copy of the book instead, plus another YA book of your choice!)
Good luck, and go Cubs!
