July Author in the Spotlight Wrap-Up + Giveaway.

Running after Prefontaine Giveaway ends tomorrow (Aug, 5th) at midnight.

It is the end of July already and August has started, where does the time go?  I am still away on vacation in beautiful North Dakota.  So here is to warm summer nights, days at the lake and fireworks.  What a beautiful month July has been and it is time for me to wrap-up the month of July by highlighting Minnesota author, Scott Parker.

Tomorrow is the last day to enter the contest to win a copy of Running after Prefontaine.  The contest ends at midnight.  The contest is open for residents of U.S. and Canada.  Good Luck and as always thanks for following Booksnob!

Please check out my book review of Running after Prefontaine.  A memoir.  Scott has written a memoir that is inspirational.  Scott's memoir is not merely about running but it is a philosophical look at how running is a metaphor for life.  If you can run miles and struggle through the running race, you can apply that to life's challenges and push yourself to do anything you want.  

Book Review:  Running after Prefontaine

Check out the author interview with Scott Parker.  If your curious about who Prefontaine is and why Scott is running after him, then you definitely need to read this interview as Scott reveals the answer.  Scott has a great sense of humor and like to read.  Check out the authors and books that influence him as a writer and a runner.
