Monday brings so many things. Like rain and The Great Monday Give, the part of the week when I pluck a title from the shelves to giveaway. I was lucky enough to find another hardcover, vintage copy of Lucille by Arnold Lobel for 50 cents (in great shape save a child's inscription in the front cover), so I'm passing it along to one lucky reader. All you have to do to be entered to win is comment on this post between now and Sunday night (September 26) at 11:59 PM. A winner will be selected using the highly-technical and patented "Blind Scroll and Point" method and announced the next morning.
As for the winner of the mystery grab bag from two weeks ago... give it up for Ariel S. Winter, the author of the great blog We Too Were Children, Mr. Barrie where he highlights "adult" authors who've written children's books. Ariel writes about books far more highbrow than this, but I actually thought of him the other day when I saw Dean Koontz's Santa's Twin at a bookshop. **Shudder.** I'm sorry, but some books should just never see the light of day. Creepy. (I've never read it, of course, and am judging the book solely by its cover... book snob that I am. Tsk. Tsk.) Ariel, please send your shipping info to me at webe(at)soon(dot)com, and I'll see what I can come up with.
That's all for now. (Apologies to Mr. Koontz and the obviously talented Mr. Parks.)
