Whew, where have I been? you've been waiting on pins & needles for this moment: without further ado, I will finally wrap up that summer reading contest! You all suggested books for me to read, and read 'em I did! I enjoyed picking up some books I would never have heard of otherwise. Feel free to friend me on Goodreads.com if you haven't done so already.
Here are my oh so brilliant observations on each book:
1. Uglies - Scott Westerfeld (since 2 people suggested this to me, I added it on to the top 5)
2. Marked - P.C. Cast
3. The View from Saturday - E.L. Konigsburg
4. Peace Like A River - Leif Enger
5. Thirteen Reasons Why - Jay Asher
6. Inkheart - Cornelia Funke
I really enjoyed all of the books and had a hard time picking a favorite for the giveaway. But as I narrowed down the list, this one just REALLY stood out to me. Mostly, I think, because it's one that I probably wouldn't have picked up at all, but was just completely blown away by as I read. And it was *drumroll*...
Peace like a River by Leif Enger! A big thanks to cupcake for the suggestion. And I have a lovely hardback copy for a lucky winner. How will you get it? Read on, oh Impatient One.
We're just wrapping up Antigone in class, and when checking my online database (portaportal.com), I realized there was a fun online quiz I had forgotten! Maybe I can get a homework assignment out of it this week. Have I shown you this before? I stole this idea from a co-worker: online personality quizzes! The kids are taking them all the time on Facebook/Myspace, anyway...why not tap into something academic? You can make any kind of quiz yourself and it can take awhile, but it lasts.
So here's the deal.
You take the quiz and comment. From your comments, I will select a random winner. Contest open until 11:59pm pacific time Monday.
