The Eleventh Day of Bookmas
- By: Jessica Faust | Date: Dec 15 2011
Welcome to day eleven 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: Which author of modernist literature will Lauren be haunted by as long as she works in pubishing?
And the answer is Virginia Woolf.
Congratulations to Kayeleen Hamblin. Please email your contact information to email@example.com and we’ll get your prize out immediately.
Now on to our contest . . .
Some of us know from an early age exactly what we want to do with our lives. We have a career in mind, we have a plan, and we execute it. I, however, was not one of those people. I was a voracious reader, but I never really considered making a career out of my love of books. It was only about a month before my college graduation that I saw a classified ad in the New York Times for a job at Harlequin and thought it worth a shot. Up until that point, I was leaning more toward a career in journalism, though continuing my education with either law school or culinary school were also possibilities in my mind.
My senior year in college I interned at two niche magazines that allowed me to explore a passion that I share with many other women. Can you name one or both of these magazines?
