Inspired by our fabulous Missed Connections collection, we’re offering you a chance to win a date with one (book) that got away.
Missed Connections grew out of the practice of posting Craigslist ads about people you saw and wish you’d met or talked to or asked out but for whatever reason, you didn’t. Frex:
I was southbound. You were on the northbound platform. Friday, 5:30. You: guitar case, shades, black leather duster and a copy of The Story of O carried like a badge of honor. Me: a tiny red dress and nothing else. Went clubbing, but I should’ve gotten off the train. I’ll be at Poison Pen, Sunday, 10:30-4:30, white t, jeans, red bra, and a copy of The New Bottoming Book at the edge of my table. Take a chance?
So, how do you enter? Write your own Missed Connections ad and post it to the comments on this blog post before midnight on the 7th. We’ll pick at least 4 winners to receive one of the Missed Connections titles and an older book in our catalog that they ‘missed connections’ with. Depending on entries, there may be one or more special prizes to go along with it.
Don’t miss your connection. Enter to win today!
