Play Boston Book Festival Bingo and win tickets to see Nick Zinner, Kristin Hersh, Dean Wareham, and more!

This week in the fishwrap, we've given you 33 REASONS NOT TO MISS THIS YEAR'S BOSTON BOOK FESTIVAL, which takes place all day Saturday. Here's reason #34: free passes to the Festival's only ticketed event -- our rock-authors bash featuring NICK ZINNER (Yeah Yeah Yeahs), DEAN WAREHAM (Luna/Galaxie 500), KRISTIN HERSH (Throwing Muses) and more.

We're giving away several pairs right now on our Facebook page -- just post on our wall and tell us why you're worthy. Bonus points for answers that involve our awesome BOOK FESTIVAL BINGO CARD. Just sayin'. 

If you don't grab those, then follow yours truly -- @carlycarioli -- on Twitter for more giveaways on Saturday. It's going to be an insane day -- just up the street, our geekish sister blog LASER ORGY will be partying at COMIC-CON in the same building as Obama and the Governor. Provided I can make it through to Copley Square, I'll be handing out Book Festival cut-the-line passes as well as more tickets to our rock-author revue. Hint: Bring your bingo card, bitches. 

No matter what you do at Book Fest, you'll always miss more than half of it. So check back next week as we begin rolling out podcasts (and maybe a little video) of every Boston Book Festival reading. We'll be doing that on "Page Views," our new books blog. If that's too hard to remember, you can always just go to
