As most of you already know, BookPage sends out an e-mail every Monday-Friday containing a book review. (It's called, appropriately enough, "Book of the Day.")

Well, Book of the Day is about to hit 10,000 subscribers. To put us over the edge—and to say "thank you" to the people who already receive the e-mails—we're starting a contest AND introducing a new feature on the blog. Here are the deets:

1) We will give a box of 10 books plus a $10 Books-A-Million gift card to the 10,000th subscriber to Book of the Day. Sign up here to receive Book of the Day.

2) If you already receive Book of the Day, share it via e-mail, Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn to be entered to win a box of books for yourself. You MUST click one of the buttons at the top of the newsletter (shown above)—otherwise, we won't know that you shared. We'll give away 10 boxes of books to 10 randomly selected people who share Book of the Day.

3) Book of the Day is all about introducing new books to our readers. Here on the blog, we want to take that concept and make it even more personal. Every day next week—and once a week until we hit 10,000 subscribers—we are going to give a reader a personal book recommendation, aka a book fortune.

Book fortunes are first come, first served, so send me an e-mail now (bookoftheday com) with the following information:

First name
Hometown
Favorite genre
Favorite author(s)
Favorite book(s)

Based on that information, the reading-obsessed editors of BookPage will put their heads together and come up with a personalized book recommendation.

To summarize: Sign up for Book of the Day, share it with your friends and let me know if you want a personalized book rec!

And as always, thank you for reading. :)
