The Sixth Day of Bookmas

Welcome to day six of our Bookmas Giveaway contest. For those who missed the rules, hop back over to the November 30 post and give a quick read.

And of course, before we start today’s contest, we need to announce yesterday’s winner. Yesterday’s question was a two-parter: What was the first book Jessica Alvarez found for Harlequin Historical, and what was the first book she found for Love Inspired?

And the answers are Shades of Gray by Wendy Douglas and Finding Hope by Brenda Coulter.

Congratulations to Kaitlyne. Please email your contact information to and we’ll get your prize out immediately.

Now on to our contest . . .

In college there were a few authors and novels that made a lasting impression on me. And back then I was a big fan of word-as-wall-art decor. When I moved to New York to start my first job in publishing, I had two framed pieces with excerpts from famous books hanging on my apartment walls. I'd bought one of them myself from the Guggenheim and the other was a gift from my mom that she'd found while on vacation.

What works were these pieces taken from and who were their authors?
