BOOK GIVEAWAY: 500 Tables (Updated with winner)comments (518) May 6th, 2010 in blogs
UPDATE: I can't believe that so many people wrote a caption for the this photo. Truly impressive. Well, here's the one I liked best and the winner of the contest. It made me laugh. From "woodzealot:" Last person in the shop each day must, must, must remember to plug in the Paolini before leaving so it's fully charged the next day.
Thanks to everyone who wrote something. Since this was such a big hit, I'll dig up another photograph and we can give a go again soon. - Matt
Here's how to win a copy 500 Tables (Lark Books, 2009). Write a caption for the picture below. It's a photograph that I took of Gregory Paolini recently. Your caption can be humerous or serious, but keep it nice. Greg graciously agreed to let me use this photo and I don't want him to regret that decision. (Note: If you are mean, I'll delete your post.)
Write your caption in the comments section below. The deadline is Friday, May 14 at 5:00 pm (Eastern). I'll pick the one I like best and send the book to the winning author. I'll make the announcement on Monday, May 17. Good luck! (Note: I've extended the deadline.)
A note about safety: The router was not on at the time I took this picture. It wasn't even plugged in. Greg was simply modeling for a moment while I was getting everything ready to begin shooting for real. That's why he isn't wearing any safety items (glasses and hearing protection), and why he isn't looking at the router.
