Book out of the blue

I've had the good fortune to win a book! Nathalie Foy had an extra copy of Unknown Masterpieces: Writers Rediscover Literature's Hidden Classics, published by NYRB, and held a giveaway for it, and now it's winging its way in my direction.

You know I love books about books, and this one looks particularly interesting. In the spirit of Anne Fadiman's Rereadings, it's got essays by writers about specific books--the double draw of well-known authors and a book about books. I'm looking forward to it, though I admit I feel a bit guilty that I failed to participate properly in NYRB Reading Week but still acquired a book. But I'm determined to sit down and read all my NYRBs soon.

Thank you!
