Behold: some of the (many awesome) submissions we received for our #BattleWornBooks contest!
We’ve tried to include as many as possible for you all to enjoy. (Note that if you submitted more than one photo, we chose one to put up on the site here; and we may have edited your caption for length as well.)
Thanks to all who participated!
Oh… you want to know who the winners are?
The GRAND PRIZE Winner… who will receive the Subterranean Press edition (the very, very limited edition!) of Perfect Shadow… is Shadow Neconish!
Shadow edges all others by (1) having carried this book through legitimately super hard places (2) claiming to have the name “Shadow” and (3) by showing an appreciation for the fine art of leaving his readers begging for more. “Wait, what? What happened? And you came back? When? Why?”
Here are the Top 5 Winners — who will each receive a Brand-New Author-Signed Set of The Night Angel Trilogy:
19 times is… a lot of times. Plus, this picture is just so darn Christmas-y!
Aw, I’m just a sucker for a love story. Right, you guys? (But, how did you not kill each other if one of you is a faster reader and had to wait at every page?)
To me that book looks suspicious. It’s paper… it’s paper, and yet standing there like it had nothing to do with what happened here. (But seriously, sorry. Fires suck.)
This one almost won Grand Prize. This is what I call Playing the Man, not the Game. I’ve been a parent, so I know how that feels. Also, well done!
It’s just… so darn pretty.
And here are (many) of the rest for your viewing pleasure!

#BattleWornBooks I feel kinda bad because the originals were so damaged from use that I got this one. It’s been on MULTIPLE trips, taken to work, taken to play rehearsals, and read a grand total of maybe 15 times. As you can see, almost done with the 16th go-around 😉 @BrentWeeks pic.twitter.com/tBEIFOCoRm

Here’s my #battlewornbooks Night Angel trilogy. It would be more worn if it’s weight and general massiveness didn’t discourage me from bringing it more places 😅 Luckily my library has a wonderful ebook collection. pic.twitter.com/cmltddvSJT

Okay. I see Brent Week’s #BattleWornBooks tag and I raise you one.
Books aren’t in the worst of shape but! I still have the super exclusive Barnes and Noble promo Comic that was only available for a limited time to go with.

I started reading these books during my freshman year of high school, and they’d be the only books I read (of my own will) those 4 years. I’d finish and restart. It got to the point where I’d grab one and open it and random and know right where I was in the story #BattleWornBooks pic.twitter.com/IvYKYqWW7H
