Win One of 50 Literary Calendars from Postertext!

I’m excited today to partner with the kind folks at Postertext who want to give you guys a brand new 2016 literary calendar!

But this isn’t just some run-of-the-mill calendar with generic books photos and Hemingway in a wife beater. This is much better.

Postertext uses text from some of literature’s most famous novels to craft an image related to that novel. Here’s how they describe it. Read more

Thanks to everyone who participated in the book giveaway over the weekend.

So, without further delay, here are the three randomly selected winners! Read more

The 101 Books 5th Anniversary Giveaway!

Last week, 101 Books celebrated its 5 year anniversary–better known as a “blogaversary” in some parts.

Today, let’s take the celebration to the next level by giving a few novels away. How ’bout it?

As usual, I’ll keep this simple.

To enter the giveaway, all you have to do is answer the following question in the comments:

The 101 Books 2014 Christmas Giveaway!

Guys, it’s been crazy lately, and for the first time in almost 5 years, I’ve had a hard time keeping up with the blog. That explains the two unannounced off days this week (if you even noticed).

With the holidays here, I’ll be taking next Tuesday through Friday off, then posting some “Best of 2014” posts during the following week.

But before I go on hiatus, I want to have a little Christmas contest and give away a couple of books. It’s just a little thank you for reading 101 Books this year.

You’ve been a part of what has been, by far, the busiest year in 101 Books history. I’d love to give all of you a book, but I ain’t got the budget for that.

So, instead, I’m giving away 2 books from the first 76 I’ve read from the Time list. The winners get to pick which one they want.

The 4 Giveaway Winners Are…

You guys know the drill.

On Tuesday, I invited you to take part in my 4th “blogaversary” giveaway. To celebrate 4 years of the blog, I decided to give away 4 books from the Time list.

All you had to do to enter was answer the question: “What’s the worst book you’ve ever read?”

I got 98 responses, and I used a random number generator to pick four winners.

Here are the lucky winners, with the books they said they hated the most: Read more

The 101 Books Blogaversary Giveaway!

So the blog turned 4 on Friday (technically Saturday). That’s fun and all, but I don’t think 101 Books would’ve lasted as long without all you guys around.

So today, like I sometimes do, I want to giveaway a few books as way of saying thank you. I wish I could give a book to all you guys but that just ain’t gonna happen.

Since the blog is turning 4, I figured why not give away 4 books? That’s the most I’ve ever given away, but it’s a special occasion, so why not?
