NYRB Reading Week - Welcome
Welcome to the NYRB Reading Week! I'll be hosting this event together with Honey of Coffeespoons. We're both looking forward to reading your reviews and spending a week reading some NYRB books.
There are no real rules for this event. This is just a relaxed and informal reading week. Simply read one or more NYRB books during this week and blog about it. If you don't have a blog, then just leave us a link to your review.
During the week, Honey and I will collate your posts and blog about them to make it easy for everyone to read all the reviews. Please post a link to your post in this welcome section or in any of the other NYRB posts in my blog or Honey's. Do this and you'll get a chance to win some prizes. We're giving out prizes for two of our favourite reviews. My favorite reviewer will get a chance to win The Summer Book by Tove Jansson. While Honey's favorite reviewer will win Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi.
Fully Booked and Random House, Inc. have kindly given us five books to give away. We've also decided to give a prize to the best photo you can come up with of NYRB books. We were inspired by Thomas at My Porch's recent photographs of his collection. See below.
The other books up for grabs for this event are the following:
The Wedding of Zein by Tayeb Salih
Soul of Wood by Jakov Lind
No Tomorrow by Vivant Denon
