Rare Book Treasure Contest: Win an Autographed John Updike Book

signed-autographed-widows-eastwick-john-updikeWe have a signed copy of The Widows of Eastwick by John Updike to give away to one lucky person. It’s easy to enter our contest – just tell us about your greatest rare book discovery, found while sifting through the piles of Nora Roberts and Tom Clancy paperbacks at yard sales, garage sales, flea markets, estate sales, thrift stores, library sales and any other sources of used books.

We know bibliophiles cannot resist hunting for rare first editions and collectible books when they see a pile of used copies. And we know you have some wonderful stories to tell. We?ll print the best ones in a feature on AbeBooks and the treasure hunter with the most interesting tale, as judged by AbeBooks? Richard Davies, will win the Updike book.

You need to describe your discovery, including where it occurred, what you paid and what you think the book is worth, in no more than 200 words. Don?t forget to include your name and the town or city where you live. Email the entry to contests@abebooks.com

And of course, what would a contest be without Contest Rules?
Good luck.

    My favorite book was an east Indian book on palm reading. It was thin but was a really interesting book. Very nice illustrations. And once I had an Egyptian book on tarot card reading. It related to a particular Egyptian tarot card deck. These are probably ones I could never find similar copies of again. One that I’ve had the longest that I like is an old one of Japanese haiku verses that I bought in a Japanese imports store. It has a rather stiff cardboard cover but nice quality paper and the illustrations are very nice.
