Results of the Facebook “Summer Reads” Giveaway

The River of Doubt

John Shutske’s recommendation, The River of Doubt: Theodore Roosevelt’s Darkest Journey by Candice Millard

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Facebook “Summer Reads” Giveaway last week. The results are in, and the winner of the $25 UW Bookstore gift card is… John Shutske! Congratulations, John, and thanks for the great book suggestion. John recommended The River of Doubt: Theodore Roosevelt’s Darkest Journey by Candice Millard, calling it the “greatest summer vacation book ever. The Perfect blend of history, science, and adventure!”

Along with John’s recommendation were seventeen other sizzling summer reads to get you through the dog days. The suggested books ranged from spellbinding Sci-Fi to heartbreaking memoir, with a little bit of Young Adult and Historical Lit in between (there might even be a few boy wizards in the mix, and not just Harry Potter, either!). Check out the full list of entries and many more summertime favorites on the UW-Madison Libraries’ Summer Reads 2013 Pinterest board.
