Bob’s Hanukkah: The Winner!

BoB’s Hanukkah contest – wherein BooksonBoard is giving away a Cybook Opus, a book light, and a $25 gift certificate to BooksonBoard to whomever wrote the best book pitch that featured a character named Bob, a Jewish holiday, and a reference to BooksonBoard.

By an overwhelming number of votes, and with the laughing confirmation of Kana at BooksonBoard, we announce that The Playgirl Shikseh’s Virgin Dreidel Boy, by Kathlyn, is the winner – Happy Hanukkah Kathlyn!

Thank you to all who entered, and if you’d like to experience the virgin drediel boy joy again, her winning entry is reprinted below. (Psst, Harlequin: need more Hanukkah romances! With Virgin Dreidel Boys! Kthxbye!)

THE PLAYGIRL SHIKSEH’S VIRGIN DREIDEL BOY
MLD Tournament-playing shikseh princess Callie O’Farsey loves her men as much as her dreidels. They’re wild, wooden, and she’s their mistress!

Dreidel boy Duddy Latke is a young man working in his step-father’s toy making factory – Bob’s Toys. Duddy’s stepfather is known for his prized dreidels. Duddy, cursed to create dreidels that land only on “nun”, feels unlovable. Just before Hanukkah, while downloading self-help ebooks from BooksonBoard, Duddy has a light-bulb moment and solves his wobbly dreidel dilemma.

When skikseh princess Callie arrives one evening to gamble with Bob, Duddy knows it will not end well. His step-father’s life of wealth is a masquerade. The only thing Bob has of worth is his dreidels – and his step-son. When Duddy realizes his one precious fully operational dreidel has been given to Shikseh Callie, he refuses to be parted from it. He surprises everyone by announcing that he must be taken with the dreidel.

Callie wants more from Duddy than longest time of spin. The playgirl shikseh is determined to bed Duddy —and when Callie realizes he’s a virgin, the challenge only becomes more interesting… Is that a dreidel in his pocket, or is he glad to see her?

    The story of Duddy and Callie have this shikseh laughing aloud in the middle of the night.  It’s a winner based on the title alone (I’d love to see this one at next year’s Hqn Halloween party). Congratulations, Kathlyn!

    Sandra, I started to answer your question about dreidels but then realized that wikipedia would do a much better job.

    :-D That was my first reaction!  I immediately guessed something that turns around (Yiddish is sometimes close enough to German to get the rough gist), but I still had to look it up!
    The winning title and blurb is still pretty brilliant, though, even for those of us who know little about Jewish festivals.

    *is laughing so hard she cannot breathe*

    I don’t know what’s funnier, the title or Duddy refusing to be parted from “his one precious fully-operational dreidel” Oh my god, Kathlyn, thank you for bringing this story idea into the world.

    Someone should totally write this book. I’d be tempted to myself if I had the time.

    I definitely first read that as The Playgirl Sheik, which had me thinking, “I approve. There need to be more playgirl sheiks.”
