The Summer Reading Contest Winners

Summer has wound to an end—so what better time to announce the winners of our Summer Reading contest! We asked you to write a story about a classic summer experience, and write you did. You then voted for 25 finalists who were considered for inclusion in a NOOK Book™ compilation. But in the end, we could only choose 10 stories to include.

Check out the winners below, and congratulate your fellow Figs!
