Sometimes I'm a big goof. I saw Todd start up his contest and forgot to give a shout out to it. We shall rectify this situation (said with a German accent).
Hey look, Todd Wheeler has started up his summer reading contest and lassoed a sponsor. Good on you, Todd. This year's charity is the Children's Literacy Foundation. Considering in my own state the Governor and Legislature are cutting library funding like it was the new crack, I wholly support this contest.
This year I'm not eligible for prizes having been a previous winner. BUt I'm sure you all qualify. Read a book, get a chance at spiffy prizes (Random Michelle won the first week) and make Todd and Bear Pond Books fork over the dough and books. What could be easier and more fun. And you know you're going to read books anyway.
