Thank you, everyone, who came by my blogoversary party. One of my selfish goals was to meet more people and I am so glad to have met some new bloggers and writers.

Those of you who've won: I'll be making a trip to the post office later this week. I hope you'll enjoy the books, and if you feel so inclined, let the authors know. The few times I've dropped authors a note about how I've enjoyed their books, they seemed happy to get the positive feedback.

Christine: you won yesterday's contest, a copy of Cynthia Lord's Rules.

I'll throw in an extra quote:
"Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swaps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it's yours."
— Ayn Rand

Let your fire burn, let your hero thrive, and go get 'em!

Whoops...I'm a little too late for the contest! Maybe Corey will give me one of her books? ;-)

Some of my favorite children's book lines are from Willy Wonka...and sadly, they are only in the book and not in the screenplay. Whoops--strike that, reverse it.
