Here at the Cleveland Movie Blog, we love movies. Well, except for Charles, maybe. But sometimes it's good to take a break from the almost non-stop audio-visual stimulation of modern life and actually read a book. Not an e-book on your Ipad or Kindle or whatever, but an actual, honest-to-goodness book made out of paper. If you feel the same way, you're in luck. Our friends at Gray & Company Publishers have provided us with copies of two of their latest books to give away – 'Damn Right I'm From Cleveland' by Mike Polk Jr., the stand-up comedian who unleashed those “Hastily Made Cleveland Tourism” videos on Youtube, and 'Cleveland Christmas Memories' by Restaurant Hospitality magazine editor Gail Ghetia Bellamy.
'Damn Right I'm From Cleveland' makes for great bathroom reading, which I mean as a sincere compliment. It's a bunch of short, funny essays and cheap gags about all things Cleveland. 'Cleveland Christmas Memories' is a collection of photos and remembrances of the way Clevelander's have celebrated the holiday in the past, so you can bet there's some mention of Mr. Jingleling and Halles.
If you want one of these books, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and answer this question: What famous movie director is the son of Cleveland horror host Ghoulardi?
First correct answer gets first pick of which book they want, second correct answer gets the one that's left. Employees of the Cleveland Movie Blog and their relatives are not eligible to win, and if you happen to be the person who won our previous contest, sit this one out. Otherwise have at it.
