Literary Contest Clue Number #4 — Only Two More Days to Guess the Best Book I Read in 2006

Filed under: Uncategorized — 1minutebookreviewswordpresscom @ 12:06 pm

Only two more days to win a free copy of John Carey’s Pure Pleasure: A Guide to the 20th Century’s Most Enjoyable Books!

You can win a copy of John Carey’s Pure Pleasure: A Guide to the 20th Century’s Most Enjoyable Books by becoming the first person to guess correctly the best book I read in 2006. The first clue appeared on Thursday, and a new clue will appear every day through Dec. 31 (tomorrow). I will review the book and give a short excerpt from it on Jan. 1 and announce the winner on Jan. 2.

To enter, leave a comment on any contest post with title and author of the book you think I read. If you get “error” messages when you try to leave a comment, send an e-mail note to with your guess, and give me permission to post it for you under the name on your e-mail address. If you do this, I will post your guess for you, and will get credit for having sent it at the time on your e-mail, not the time I post it.

Clue #4: Here’s one of the most famous lines written by the female author who is the subject of the biography you’re trying to guess:

“ … for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.”

This is one of my favorite lines in all of literature.
