Apologies for interrupting this week's discussion, but, thanks to Coffee House Press, we're giving away three copies of Firmin to the loyal Litblog Co-Op readers. These copies are signed by author Sam Savage and illustrator Michael Mikolowski.
All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and tell us what book you'd be most likely to eat if you were a rat like Firmin and why. (Keep in mind that when Firmin eats a book, he is capable of devouring the contents of the book in one sitting. A helpful condition to place in your mind as you're ruminating upon this most important question.)
The three most creative responses will received signed copies of the book! (Of course, if you already have a copy of the book, then we'd still like to hear from you.)
Speaking for myself, I'd probably eat the collected works of William T. Vollmann, if only because this would allow me to catch up on the man's prodigious output over the course of one meal.
[UPDATE: Wow, you guys are good. Okay, I'm going to keep the contest open until 7PM PST, 10PM EST, and shortly thereafter, I will announce the three winners. Keep the meals coming!]
[UPDATE 2: The time window has now closed. I will announce the winners later this afternoon. Thank you all for participating!]
