We have two winners!

Thanks to all who checked out, or entered, Proto Libro’s first book giveaway. Due to the generosity of Other Press and author Thomas Van Essen, Proto Libro had two copies of The Center of the World – a debut novel which I feel has been underrated this year – to give away. Kirkus Review also listed the book as one of the “overlooked novels of 2013.”

So after the drawing…..


We have two winners…congrats to:


And thanks for all the book recs you provided when you entered the giveaway. Two of the books suggested were debuts. A debut novel: What Happened to Sophie Wilder by Christopher Beha; and a debut memoir: My Foreign Cities, by Elizabeth Scarboro.

More reviews to come next week…I’m writing next about Jennifer duBois‘s second novel, Cartwheel and then about James Whitfield Thomson’s debut novel, Lies You Wanted to Hear.

  1. I’m so excited to win this–and to read this book, which sounds just wonderful. Thanks so much, Kate, for arranging this fun contest, for all these terrific reviews, and for giving all of us an opportunity to share our recent favorites, too!

    • @Beth I appreciate your enthusiasm for the giveaway and this blog. And hope you enjoy The Center of the World! And I look forward to reading the book you suggested, Taipei.
