Ends Today: Giveaway of NOM DE PLUME

Quick reminder: if you'd like a chance at a copy of Nom de Plume, send me an email with the subject line NOME DE PLUME to readingape AT gmail DOT com by 11:59pm (Eastern) tonight.

This week, I've pulled my daily Literary Fact of the Day from Nom de Plume to show how intimate and fascinating this book is:

George Sand explained that the reason she didn't like her husband was his unattractive nose.


While working as a ranch-hand in Texas, O. Henry would carry around a copy of Webster's Unabridged Dictionary while herding sheep.


Sylvia Plath wrote The Bell Jar on textured, pink memo pads.


Patricia Highsmith was obsessed with her (pet) snails & once smuggled them into France by hiding them under her breasts.
