The Pacific Northwest Reader Giveaway

My contributor copies of The Pacific Northwest Reader came in the mail yesterday, and I'm giving three of them away. I've seen copies of the essay collection on the shelves at Village Books, and I know stores like Elliott Bay Book Co., Powell's Books, Auntie's Bookstore, Eagle Harbor Book Co., and any of the numerous IndieBound stores in the Northwest have them too.

Booksellers, librarians, and former booksellers and librarians have compiled personal stories about their lives in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washinton to produce a collection about which New York Times bestselling author Garth Stein (The Art of Racing in the Rain) says, "These personal tales are fantastic, fun, and delightful on their own; they're a wonderful patchwork quilt of the region when taken as a whole. I loved this collection!"

Leave a comment here about how you're a Pacific Northwest reader--or reader of any kind for that matter--for your chance to win a free copy of the Reader. Or tweet: @daviewheeler I'm a #PacificNorthwestReader. [Contest ends 5pm (PST) on Monday, April 19, 2010.]

I am a Pacific Northwest reader. In fact, I am you in reverse if we consider your essay. I am a WA resident who is moving to Idaho--within eight miles of the Washington border. Will I become a border child as you were?
