September's Book...and Contest!

There is a contest that Shannon Hale is doing for any book club that chooses this book as their selection so that is what we are doing and it is going to be big. So get reading and I would love everyone's participation to win and yes everyone will get a prize. So check back often for updates. Happy Reading!

the actor and the housewife in a bookclub near you! Read the actor and the housewife with your bookclub and then report the experience. I'll select the account that interests me the most (I know! Vague criteria!) and the winner will get a big ol' box of books, filled with my titles (signed) as well as others. Remember how exciting it was to go to school the day book orders came in? And getting that new stack of books? That's how it'll be. But even cooler. No real guidelines for this. You can write me an account, send me a link where you've posted photos, or make a video, or do any combination of the three. However you want. Shorter seems better, i.e. a 3000 word commentary or a 15 minute video can get boring. Email me the account (or link to it, if you post a video or a blog with photos), with the subject line "Actor and the Housewife contest" to squeetus (at) gmail (dot) com. Please no attachments. Contest runs through January 2010.

New Pretty Town Party

The Uglies and the New Pretties party it up together... Completely unheard of! Can you tell who is who?
We had to recruit a boy to play 6 man bingo, and then we shared our plum cobbler, peach cobbler, cookies, breadsticks, of course the root beer.
Libby had to change a diaper for losing at spoons! ( I bet that was weird for her...hee hee hee)
Katrina had to run around the house outside with a can of juice concentrate down her shirt!
Jen had to pick up Heber for losing at spoons... good luck with that one!
Our Spoon game where we were trying not to spell PIG!
The unpregnant team lost the beer pong game and had to kiss poor Heber.

We had a fantastic book club at Libby's house this month. She planned a kegger style party with drinking involved... Homemade Root Beer that is. It was so fun we were giggling the whole time.
