New York Competition No. 10: Tie-in Books

Welcome back to the New York Magazine Competition. The best of last week's submissions, including the winner, appear below this week's call for entries.

To recap: On Monday mornings, we'll lay out a challenge and offer a sample responses. Enter in the comments section, or on Twitter with the hashtag we've provided, and on Sunday the editors will select a winner. Criteria are highly subjective, but heavily retweeted and favorited posts will have an advantage. The prize is a year's subscription to New York in print or a two-year subscription to the iPad edition (winner's choice). Full rules are here.

COMPETITION NO. 10: TIE-IN BOOKS. Please submit a tacky, cynical, or otherwise unliterary spinoff project. For example:

THE ‘AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY’ BOOK OF MIXOLOGY

GOOP'S GUIDE TO EVERYTHING KALE!

THE SING SING CORRECTIONAL FACILITY CROSSWORDS COLLECTION (Vols. 1 to 99)

THE RESULTS OF THE 2013 FORT LEE TRAFFIC STUDY

Post your submission in the comments below, or on Twitter with the hashtag #tieinbooks.
