The Bookshelf of Burned Love

fountainhead.jpgAs we enter the second day of our deal-breaking book contest, we’ve learned a lot about our readership. Mainly that most of us need literary relationship counselors.

Readers from all over the United States have answered this burning question: What’s the one book that burned bridges during a disastrous date or failed relationship? The doomed texts ranged from the heavy Ayn Rand novel, The Fountainhead, to the dirty-minded Grant Morrison comic book, The Filth, to J. D. Salinger’s famous, but apparently divisive novel, Catcher in the Rye. The list included enough popular material to scare any literary single straight off the dating scene.

As if the sociological import of this survey wasn’t motivation enough, GalleyCat still has a few free copies of An Arsonist’s Guide to Writers’ Homes in New England to give out to our readers who answer our burning question. Email GalleyCat your answer. Just include your mailing address in the email, and we will take care of the rest. Stay tuned. We’ll share the best stories in a future post…
