Literary Lark Pursuit: June Final Round

Who will be queen of the nest this month? Only time will tell. The winner will receive a $10 gift card to Amazon or Barnes and Noble (winner chooses) and a lovely scrabble tile necklace made by our very own, Tevya. The winner will also be allowed to compete in March to defend her title. The goal is to have fun and learn about books.

Let me introduce our three competitors....


* Our Defending LLP Champion, Devan, from Book Strings

* Cara

* Sonny from Literary Junkie

Literary Lark Pursuit Basics:
Each week I will be issuing a challenge to the three lovely ladies competing this month. They have a week to track down the information I seek. Each of competitor must track down various books, authors, book trailers, and other literary items. One point will be awarded for each unique item. If this sounds like something you'd enjoy - send us an email and we'll get you on the competitor list. We still have spots open for our March competition. You can reach us at reading[dot]lark[at]gmail[dot]com
