Malaprop's coffee mugs

For our fifth day of 12 Days of Grit-Mas we're teaming up with Asheville's most beloved independent bookstore, Malaprop's.

The Prize: $25 gift card and bag of books (overall $60 value)

This giveaway is manually activated/deactivated. Because we at Grit have occasional early mornings, we may not always be able to remove the entry box after midnight. Any entries that come in after 12:30 am will be applied to the following day's giveaway. Thanks for your understanding!

This giveaway has ended and we have a winner! Thanks for entering!

What more could you want than a gift certificate to the best bookstore in town? Use it to grab a cup of coffee next time you head to one of the shop's ever-popular author events, spruce up your room with a literary poster, or just finally buy that book that you've over-highlighted on your e-reader. Beyond the gift card, you will recieve a bag of books (approx. $35 value) to finally fill up your book shelves. Who needs winter hikes when you've got a bag full of new books? No one, the answer is no one.


Check out Malaprop's latest happenings and current staff favorites on their site. Stay updated with all things Malaprop's on their Facebook and Twitter.

Want to win? Enter your email at the top of this post between 9 am and 12 midnight on Friday, December 16th! We'll notify the winner within 24-48 hours of the end of the contest.
