When you find a good book, you want everyone to read it. There is literally NO ONE who should NOT READ THAT BOOK. Everyone deserves the joy it will bring them. Your boring gym teacher? Deserves the joy. Your evil cousin? Deserves the joy. The boy in third grade who put gum in your hair resulting in two years of awkward chop-job grow-out? Even he deserves the joy.
Sharing the joy of something you love feels good. Sharing the joy of a good book is incomparable. And that’s the joy of I Heart Daily.
For this contest, sponsored by Figment and our friends at I Heart Daily, your challenge is as follows: write a review—of no more than 300 words—of your favorite book published in 2011. Submit your entry by December 16 at 11:59 p.m ET. Then you get to decide the 10 finalists by voting on your favorite entries.
The top 10 most-hearted entries will be read and judged by Melissa Walker, author of Small Town Sinners and four other young-adult novels. (She’s also the co-editor of I Heart Daily with Anne Ichikawa!) The grand-prize winner will receive a Kindle Touch pre-loaded with 5 of Figment’s favorite books of 2011 and 5 of I Heart Daily’s favorite books of 2011.
