Book Giveaway - Most Likely You Go Your Way and I'll Go Mine

Welcome to TNBBC's 2nd book giveaway!

This giveaway was made possible by author Ben Tanzer, creator of This Blog Will Change Your Life and This Zine Will Change Your Life. Not only is Ben a super cool writer and blogger, but he is also very generous and giving. He has sent me a signed copy of his 2008 novel "Most Likely You Go Your Way and I'll Go Mine", released by Orange Alert Press, to giveaway to one lucky reader.

>Here's the summary from Goodreads: "
Most Likely You Go Your Way and I'll Go Mine takes place in an early nineties New York City and follows the romance between Jen and Geoff the novel's two main characters. It is a story about fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, the value of friends, the reason its best to go out for coffee on first dates and what exactly defines being on the rebound. The characters riff on their favorite books, channel Yoda and Bob Dylan, deal with siblings and try to make sense of a world that shouldn't be as confusing as it seems to be. They also seek greater self-awareness and debate why Dallas will always be superior to Knots Landing, even as they find love, lose it and find it again."

The giveaway will run until May 1st. If you want a shot at winning this signed copy of "Most Likely...", summon up your worst dating story and email it to me at Be sure to mark the subject of the email as "Most Likely Worst Dating Story". I will chose the best story and post it, along with the winners name, here on May 1st.

So dig deep, the more embarrassing, the more painful, the better....and good luck!


  1. OK, I'm game though this isn't a dating story in the usual sense as we weren't on a date but were at a gathering at a mutual friend's home. There was a guy, who I had known well enough to say hi to but never really spoke with there as well and unbeknownst to me had a rather huge crush. The whole evening he followed me about getting more and more outrageous in his attentions, at one point backing me up against a wall and giving me a pretty passionate kiss unexpectedly. If I'd go to sit down he'd sit really close to me and pull me in his lap. Well this harassment went on the whole evening with everyone but me finding the situation entertaining which just made it all the more mortifying, of course being just shy of 18 didn't help either as I feel sure I'd have just clobbered him if I was more sure of myself, charming grin or not. Anyways, the most embarrassing detail of the story is that I ended up marrying him, and 32 years later he still has his cheeky grin and grabby ways :)

  2. Sherry, that is an awesome embarrassing story, but beautiful in a way too, since it has a happily ever after :)
    Thanks for the entry!!
