Yo Oprah, I'ma let you finish but the 2009 Debs have the best giveaways OF ALL TIME!

Oh my gosh, this contest sounds amazing! Definitely going to spread the word to my American friends- and their much-loved local libraries...

I think I recall a very sad series of blog posts from some of the Debs about libraty services coming under threat in one US state (Philly?) because of the Global Financial Crisis. So this is the perfect way to boost spirits!!

:) It's a little scary that the year of awesome book debuts is wrapping up so fast! I don't know what I would've read without the recommendations! (Actually, I probably would've invested in ridiculous amounts of gossip magazines... *shudder*)

Thank you so much Debs for setting this up, and for writing about incredibly hunky guys for me to crush on. My garden of literary crushes is growing thanks to your input! ;)

Re: Yo Oprah, I'ma let you finish but the 2009 Debs have the best giveaways OF ALL TIME!

hehehe. this subject line made me snort coffee.


:D Thank you!
Sarah Cross very graciously gave me some Summer of Seven bookmarks and I have been staring at The Season with serious serious longing for wayyy too long! This also applies to Lipstick Apology, Shadowed Summer, TMI, Twenty Boy Summer, Shrinking Violet... actually I'm so glad you guys put together this reference list. I should just print it off and tick them off as I order them :)

Also I really loved your post on lines that don't belong in regency novels. "My dancemaster is insisting I learn the Robot." bwhahaha!
Hi Jess-- this is the first I've heard of this. I'll look into it immediatly. Please email me.

Thanks Jackson. I emailed you.
Thanks to all. I replied to Mandy's email. :)
what a great concept. Plus, I love having this list to see how many we already have and how many should be on my future order list!


Wow--this is an AMAZING contest. I SO wish I were a librarian! (:

Wait! How quickly can I become a librarian???

Great contest, Debs! So awesome of you to bless our librarians.
I'm excited! Going to wait until I have more of my teens gathered around to take the picture. Now, is it okay to feature more than one book in the picture or do you guys want the focus to be on just one?
