As I've mentioned before, I have some goodies to give away. Let's kick things off with a nonfiction book that I would keep and read myself if I didn't already have a stack of literature I'm trying to get through.
THE PRIZE: A brand-new copy of The Soloist by Steve Lopez. "This is the true story of journalist Steve Lopez's discovery of Nathaniel Ayers, a former classical bass student at Julliard, playing his heart out on a two-string violin on Los Angeles' Skid Row. Deeply affected by the beauty of Ayers's music, Lopez took it upon himself to change the prodigy's life—only to find that their relationship has had a profound change on his own life."
THE RULES: Leave a comment—any comment—by Saturday, December 19, 2009, 11:59 p.m. If you don't have an ID you can sign in with, you can comment anonymously and leave your name or your initials; when I announce the winner, you'll know if you won and all you have to do is e-mail me to claim your prize. One winner will be chosen at random. Anyone in the world can enter, even those people who have won before.
