Thanks to all of you who shared your book group stories last month! We love hearing about what you read and what makes for great discussion. This month, we’re kicking off a new Read It Forward feature. In every issue, we’ll ask you to respond to a question about book groups, and one lucky winner will win advance reader’s copies for your entire group: you’ll get to read a great new book before it hits the shelves and may be featured in an upcoming issue of Read It Forward.
To enter, simply add a comment below answering the book group question of the month. Winners will be chosen at random and notified by email within 30 days of posting. (Limit one entry per person. No purchase necessary.)
This month we’re giving away copies of Twelve Rooms with a View by award-winning playwright Theresa Rebeck. It’s the story of a young woman who, after her mother’s husband dies, suddenly finds herself in possession of a 7000 square foot, $11 million posh apartment overlooking Central Park. It’s a dazzling read—a smart, giddy satire of eccentric upper crust New York City, where everyone suffers from some kind of real estate envy.
