I have a couple of tidbits to share with you right now. First, Liviania has nominated me for the Premio Dardos award! Apparently it means “prize darts” which is weird because the text of the award when I first got it was apparently in Portuguese (confirmed by Lenore) and what do darts have to do with anything? I think it’s a weird award, but I LOVE it. I think I might even love it as much as the gramatically incorrect award which I never received that seems to have died out (if you have no idea what I’m talking about, don’t worry about it). I rambled on about it and passed it on already here, but I wanted to thank Liviania and post her cool graphic here. I am honored to be nominated for the award. 

While we’re talking about Liviania and her great blog, In Bed With Books, I should mention what I forgot to before, when I was talking about contests. She’s running some great contests all month in celebration of her blogiversary, and you can check out the rules here, and the most recent contest here (and keep checking her blog for more). 

Thanks again, Liviania, for being awesome!

Here are a couple of contests you might want to enter (just a couple for now, as this is an accidentally stumbled upon contest edition rather than a searching for contest to link to edition). First, 10 awesome ARCs from The Story Siren here, and then a signed copy of Beth Fantaskey’s Jessica’s Guide To Dating on the Dark Side (which I really, really want to read) from Reading Keeps You Sane here. I would say good luck, but….I want to win! Particularly the second one!

There are lots of contests around the internet right now. If I’ve missed one, feel free to comment and tell me. This is what I’ve got right now, though. You could win:

And check out the comments for more!

Both of these news items would have been more timely yesterday, but…life is insane. So here you go!

First, the Cybils winners were announced! You can check out the list here, but the ones I’m particularly happy about are, of course, The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks, by E. Lockhart, in my category, YA fiction, as well as Naomi Shihab Nye’s book Honeybee winning the award for poetry. 

Second, my piece on Heifer International is up at I Heart Daily! Check it out here

Another reminder to check me out on Helium, because of an article that might interest a lot of you–I get a lot of requests for help from beginning bloggers, so I wrote this article about starting a book blog.

So because we all like to win things, I’m sharing these contest links I’ve collected recently. For a little effort (sometimes no more than leaving a comment), you can get a chance to win:

Good luck!

There are many contests around the internets right now. Here are some opportunities to win books:

Good luck!

News Item #1: In case you hadn’t heard, the ALA Youth Media Awards were announced earlier this week. The one I was most excited about what Melina Marchetta’s Jellicoe Road winning the Printz Award! Definitely deserved. Check out the whole list of awards here. Possibly more thoughts on some to come at a later date, but don’t count on it.

News Item #2: Harmony is having many contests. Some are ending very soon! Check out her post with links to them all here. My favorite? The one for Alison Goodman’s Eon: Dragoneye Reborn. Wish me luck (and compete against me). 

Yeah, that’s it. Enjoy.
