B4B Finalists

Scott and I are painting the basement RED this weekend, so my hands look coated in GORE as I type this. I interupt my paintly exertions to bring the following message re: finalists from Anne Fitten...

"Thank you all for your entries to December’s Blogging 4 Books. As usual, all entries were engaging, unusual, moving. Thanks for sharing and for putting yourselves and your work out there.

And this is a contest, so, without further ado or explanation, and in no particular order, the seven finalists are:

Jen Duffy

You're My Favorite

Citywords

Travels in Booland

Perfection on a Curve

Running Rio

The Age of Aquarius

Happy holidays to all. Anne Fitten (aka Edgy Mama)"

HUZZAH! Remember, all seven of these entries will be read by author Lara M. Zeises. She will pick first, second and third place. First place gets a signed first edition of her new YA novel, Anyone But You which was a Teen People Top Ten Pick.

Congrats to the finalists!

Can we see pics of the red walls when you're done, Joss? I love red walls. Yum. Only place I have them in my house though is one small bathroom and my hubby pretty much thought even that was nuts.

Wow!

If pressed, I could probably come up with a more witty and heartfelt response, but I'm just too stunned and thrilled.

So...

Wow!

Though it would have been immoral to me to accept bribes before actually judging this contest, those of you who are feeling particularly thrilled should know that I love dark chocolate and good beer.

Those of you who are less than thrilled should know that my cats left a partially dismembered mouse at the foot of my bed this morning.
