The Prize: $25 gift card and bag of books from Malaprop's Bookstore & Cafe; pie flight, hat, and glass from Baked Pie Company

We're kicking off the second annual Gritmas celebration with what we think is the best combination ever: books and pie. Today, enter to win a $25 gift card and a bag of books from Malaprop's Bookstore and Cafe (55 Haywood St.) AND a credit for a pie flight, plus a hat and a glass, from Baked Pie Company (4 Long Shoals Rd. and 50 N. Merrimon Ave. in Reynolds Village).

Since 1982, Malaprop's has been Asheville's most beloved independent bookstore. Known for its large and carefully curated selection of all of the best new and classic books, Malaprop's is also a hub in the community, where people come together to hear their favorite authors speak, catch up over coffee and pastries, or browse the stacks. Be sure to check out Malaprop's selection of local books and their Blind Date With a Bookseller, which pairs you with a mystery book based on the description you choose.

Within a little over a year, Baked Pie Company in South Asheville has exploded onto the scene with its delicious, homemade offerings. Opened after owner Kirsten Fuchs and her daughter couldn't find a place to just sit down and get a slice of pie, it's a dream realized. A second location in Woodfin ensures that both North and South Asheville can get their pie fix. At Baked, a rotating menu tantalizes visitors with options like honey pecan, blueberry crumb, lemon meringue, shoofly, fudge brownie, and more. Pie flights come with three slices and a scoop of ice cream. Order a cup of coffee, sit down, and savor every bite. Then take another few slices—or a whole pie—home with you.

Total Estimated Value: $100
