Scott Pilgrim vs. the Universe. It's shiny.
Email me with either "Ramona" or "Kim" in the subject line by... oh, 2 pm tomorrow, let's say, and if I pick your email I'll send you the book. I'm not gonna pretend my selection will be random. Choose wisely.
After the jump, I'm going to post some emails Mercury film editor Erik Henriksen sent me (from a fake email address, natch) during a giveaway I did for books 1-4, in which he desperately tried to trick me into giving him my advance copy of Scott Pilgrim #5—because they're funny, because the blog has been dead for two hours, and because Erik just spent half an hour making fun of me for running an article about mimes in my section, so fuck him.

Please enter me in the contests to win Scott Pilgrim No. FIVE. I cannot tell you how much I love Scott Pilgrim, he is my favorite book. Reading his new adventures would be the highlight of my YEAR!
Thank you much! :P
