“And may the odds be ever in your favor!”
-Effie Trinket, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Guess what I did today.
Did you guess?
If you’re friends with me on Facebook, you may have some idea.
Or if you can clearly see the photos above, you may actually know.
Maybe the title gave it away.
I brought my children to meet author of The Hunger Games trilogy at the Brookline library in Massachusetts. Suzanne Collins read two passages, and then signed books.
09/06 is my one-year anniversary, or blogiversary as Jackee at Winded Words calls it. And what a better way to celebrate than by giving away a stamped/signed copy of Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins!!!!!
That’s why I drove in 103-degree (according to my car) heat to walk six blocks to the library and wait for about two hours. Because I love you, blogging friends.
Since Niamh (Words A Day ), a talented writer (so you should follow her blog) donated her winnings to ASPS, I feel like I should have another contest with a prize you can keep.
So here’s what you have to do. It’s EASY. Really.
1) Be a follower
Old = 3 points
New = 1 point
2) Earn extra points
Tweet = 1 point
Sidebar on blog = 1 point
Facebook link = 1 point
Mention in blog = 5 points
3) Tell me what you did and tally your points in the
comments section (and leave your e-mail address)
Winner will be chosen on my one-year anniversary on 09/06 at noon. Good luck!
If you haven’t read the other two (The Hunger Games and Catching Fire), go buy them in paperback. If you don’t read YA, enter anyway because these books are worth reading. If you have Mockingjay already and you win, give away your naked copy.
I’ll leave you with a link to my first post “Words to Live By”:
It’s still as true as ever.
While I haven’t entirely changed my circumstance, I’ve grown in many ways since I wrote that first post. I hope this year brings even greater changes. For the good. Thank you for taking this journey with me.
Love, Theresa xo
