Three matters of business to discuss. The first is the winner of a signed copy of Swim the Fly by Don Calame. Ya know, that contest that I held a long long time ago and ended around about the time all my end-of-semester work picked up. Heh. Buuuut in a fit of procrastination the other night I counted up the entries and picked the winner, via Random.org, who is:
***The second order of business is the People's choice YA Book Blog Awards that are being held by Steph at Hey Teenager of the Year. Categories like Best Reviewer, Best Interviewer, Best Newcomer, and the Golden Book Blog Award. What a great way to show support for all the fantastic bloggers out there; keep up the great work! You should go over there and vote!
I'm also absolutely flabbergasted that I was nominated for Best Newcomer. Ummmmmm???!!!??? When I saw that, my mouth seriously dropped open. Wow! Thank you to whoever nominated me, and for all of you who read my blog and make me feel as if I'm not writing to thin air. I really, really, REALLY appreciate all your support, friendship, and comments, and hope that you find I reciprocate those feelings as well. The best part of blogging for me is finding a TON of people who share my reading tastes; this is something that has never happened to me before, even a few years ago when I could legitimately be called a teenager. (I've now passed on into the third decade of my life.... eeeeeeeeeeeuuuuuuurrrrrrgggghhhhh!) Again, THANK YOU so much, and I'm seriously excited about the blogging future, for me and for everyone!
***The third order of business relates to my Support Teen Lit Giveaway. (For those of you who have, unfortunately, not been on the bandwagon yet, check it out here and enter for a chance to win a great many books.) Two more opportunities for you to get entries for the giveaway:
1. Comment on my review of Bad Girls Don't Die by Katie Alender here.
2. Comment on my review of Faery Rebels: Spell Hunter by R. J. Anderson here.
Stay tuned in case there are more opportunities for entries in the near future. Go go go!
