Quirksgiving: Find the Quirkey, Win Some Books!

Posted by Eric Smith


Thanksgiving is this Thursday, and here at Quirk, we've been talking the books we're thankful for.

Our authors sounded off, including Linda Rodriguez McRobbie (Princesses Behaving Badly) on various books over the course of her life, and Grady Hendrix (Horrorstor) with a post on The Famous Monsters of Filmland's Star Wars Spectacular. Never heard of it? Check out his post. Quirk staff even chimed in, discussing The Forsyte Saga by John Galsworthy and Quiet by Susan Cain.

But you know what we're also thankful for? You guys! Stopping by to read our blog, following us on the ol' Twitter, picking up our books… we heart you. 

So to celebrate, we've hidden Rick Chillot's Quirkey (get it, it's like Quirk + Turkey, it came to him in a dream) around the website. Find him, and you'll find special Quirk Rafflecopters, where you can enter to win books. Here are some useful, and maybe a little too obvious, hints. 

These books will make you thankful that…

  • 1. It isn't the end of the world.
  • 2. You paid attention during that Shakespeare class in college. 
  • 3. You haven't been asleep for one hundred years.
  • 4. Your state still exists. 
  • 5. You can eat breakfast whenever you want. 


Find the Quirkey in any of those six places, and you can enter a special giveaway that relates to that particular question. Good luck! We'll contact winners next week.
