Thanks to everyone who wrote a story in response to my falling-book SOS last week. All the names were put into the magic Promptly hat, and a random drawing has produced one swag claimant: Jackie Reuter. (Jackie, can you e-mail your address to me at email@example.com, with "Promptly" in the subject line?)
Still, even with those books finding a new home, I continue to be at a heightened risk of falling objects. So let's do one more giveaway.
Post a story (500 words or fewer) in response to today's prompt any time between now and next Wednesday, and we'll randomly draw a new name to receive a stack of books.
If you're having trouble with the captcha code sticking and can't get your story to post, e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Promptly" in the subject line, and I'll make sure it gets up.
