A challenge for you!--CLOSES 11:59pm SUNDAY 7/11

The Oxford American editors (and interns!) pick favorite summer reads. Of course I was delighted to see Robin Becker's BRAINS on the list.



After I read the entire list I immediately ordered two books.

Here's the challenge:

1. Which books on the Oxford American list had I already read and loved?

2. Which books on the Oxford American list did I order?


First person to get all the answers right wins a copy of Robin Becker's "Intelligent, absurd, hilarious, and irreverent" BRAINS.


Contest opens now.

One entry per person.
