Joshua Henkin and I had a great time reading and reviewing all of the wonderful entries in our “I read book blogs because…” contest (click here for the original post).  This contest was open to all of our wonderful book blogs readers who do not write for a blog themselves.  On Monday, over 50 entries were narrowed down to 10 finalists.  From that list, Joshua selected the first, second, and third place winners.

Josh, I can’t thank you enough for making this contest for readers so very special.  It’s so wonderful to know that there are authors out there who so willingly give of themselves to their readers.  I’m looking forward to reading your work for many decades to come. 🙂

Without further ado, here are top three finalists in this contest:

First Place

The First Place winner, who receives a signed copy of Matrimony from Joshua Henkin as well as a 6 book grab bag from Hachette Book Group is:

Laura from MN

Congratulations, Laura!  To peak your interest in your upcoming copy of Matrimony, here is a video of Joshua:

If you have a book club, you might also be interested in this message I received from Joshua:

I wanted to let you know about a special time-bound offer my publisher, Vintage, is making to book groups.  Sign up by midnight September 21 and Vintage will set up a phone chat for your book group with me to discuss my novel MATRIMONY, which has recently come out in paperback.  Normally, only five book groups are chosen among the entrants, but I have agreed to talk to all book groups that sign up.  Here’s the link to learn more, and to sign up.  I would be delighted to talk to your book group.

Second Place

The Second Place winner, who receives a three book grab bag from Hachette Book Group and a copy of First Daughter by Eric Van Lustbader from me is:

Congratulation, Jeanne!
