First, you guys are awesome. Thirty comments! Thirty! I had no idea I’d get this kind of response. The contest is still open, and you can enter more than once, you can tell your friends, you can re-state your case, whatever.
So while we’re waiting for midnight Friday (like I’ll be awake, so I’ll be posting the winners Saturday morning), here are some amusing things you might have missed around the Interwebs:
1) This is a hilarious post by Intern, about how author contests have gotten a little ridiculous with the follows and retweets and Facebook announcements, and you practically need an advanced math degree to enter. (Mr. Berry, those might be right up your alley.)
On a completely unrelated note, does anyone else find it kind of telling that the only two teachers with whom I’m friends on Facebook are my high school Calculus teacher, and my high school Physics teacher?
Yeah, me too.
2) This is a very cool Flash thingie that plays music based on which boxes you click. Just start clicking boxes and sit back and enjoy.
3) My K Teen sistah, Erica O’Rourke, has a new cover. Go check it out and leave your opinion in comments for a chance to win an ARC of her debut, Torn.
4) There’s a school district in Texas that’s considering switching to four day weeks as a result of budget cuts. Until my job lets me work a four day week (something to which I’d not be opposed), I’m not really a fan of finding someone to watch my kids on that extra off day. What do you guys think?
All right, that’s all I’ve got. Keep those book recommendations coming!
