The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society Essay Contest from Random House

Today's weather for St. Peters, MO: Mostly sunny, high 91 degrees.

Here's a fun, no-entry-fee essay contest from Random House. Write an essay of no more than 450 words describing your favorite book and what it taught you about a specific place, event or period of time. Eight Grand Prize winners will have their essay posted on this website for one year, AND will receive one copy of THE GUERNSEY LITERARY AND POTATO PEEL PIE SOCIETY signed by co-author Annie Barrows! Contest ends August 31st, 2009. Click on link for official rules.

This isn't an easy decision for me. I'm not sure I have just one favorite book.

  2. Great question! I would hope it wouldn't matter who published the book, but who knows?
