We’ve teamed up with the awesome folks at Second Glass to celebrate the happy marriage of books and wine. Last week, we asked you to share your best book + wine pairings and offered a pair of tickets to Second Glass’s NYC Wine Riot to a randomly-selected winner.

Congratulations to our winner, Haley! She recommends The Sun Also Rises and a good Spanish tempranillo.

If you didn’t win, don’t despair! You can save $5 on your Wine Riot tickets TODAY ONLY when you use the code “bookriot” at checkout.
