Just a quick note to answer a FAQ: all of these contests are open internationally, and you have until close of business on Friday, December 19th to enter them all. I may not be able to ship anything until after the holidays, but you’ll at least know if you’ve won.
Or not “you” so much as “me,” but in any case, the following links came to me over the holidays, and I wanted to share! First, this review of Let it Snow by Jocelyn over at Teen Book Review. To quote: “Maureen Johnson can always be counted on for hilarity and cheer! I loved it. I laughed out loud. In Target.”
Otherwise known as the “it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas and I have nothing exciting to write about” blog post. So! First of all, isn’t this “tree” cool? I found the image on Australian publisher Allen & Unwin’s blog page — A&U, by the way, which will publish kt literary client Lili Wilkinson‘s new book PINK next year.
As an avid reader, I have quite the collection of bookmarks, including a beautiful Charles Rennie Macintosh metal one, like this. But I usually just use whatever piece of paper I have handy, like a drink receipt from a poolside cocktail in Mexico, or a train ticket.
