Friends, your nominations are requested for the Valentine’s column on suggested reading. Please send your top picks with a 10-wordish pitch as to why we must read them.
Spelling counts. No it doesn’t. But as I’ll be ripping your referral word for word, packaging counts. And in a world where beauty matters, I admit that book covers can sway the Decider, me.
Nepotism Allowed. Only you have to pitch it, ‘kay?
Examples courtesy of Lynn-O and Stonehenge:
Gone Girl — Gillian Flynn — Annoying because the characters are SO unlikeable. Despite that, you can’t help but sticking with it to figure out what’s going to happen (and ultimately you care).
The Goldfinch — Donna Tartt — post-modern David Copperfield + Holden Caulfield rolled into one. MUST READ!
NOTE: Whoever writes the best pitch, subjectively and arbitrarily selected by the Decider, will receive (eventually) a very good book via Media Mail.
