Listen up, all you non-contest types, the ones who KNOW you won’t win and never enter anything: Today’s giveaway is so exciting that even some BookPage staffers are dying to have a shot at it (no, that’s not allowed under our contest rules, but still).
The winner will receive copies of the Top 10 books of 2012, as selected by the editors of BookPage. That’s right, you could win 10 hardcover first editions of the best books of the year, and the top two books on the list are signed by the authors (Junot Díaz and Cheryl Strayed)! This collection will look great on your bookshelf, but the real treat will come in discovering what’s inside the covers of these amazing books:
1. This Is How You Lose Her by Junot Díaz
2. Wild by Cheryl Strayed
3. Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple
4. May We Be Forgiven by A.M. Homes
5. The Lifeboat by Charlotte Rogan
6. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
7. The Round House by Louise Erdrich
8. Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk by Ben Fountain
9. Bring Up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel
10. The Light Between the Oceans by M.L. Stedman
All you booklovers, this contest is worth a try, even if you’ve never entered one of our contests before. And your odds of winning are much better than the lottery!
TO ENTER: In the comments, tell us your favorite book from the Top 10 list, or the book you’re most excited about reading if you win.
