Grab-A-Line Monday: Penultimate Edition and A Contest


There is a season to everything.

I am a firm believer in that. And I think the season for Grab-A-Line Monday is over. Maybe it'll return in a different format in the future, but right now, I wish to celebrate the end of a good season. I've enjoyed reading the quotes and I hope you have too. I've also read many books that I wouldn't have otherwise. And for that, I am very grateful.

The party to send GALM off is on next Monday, during which time I invite you to come with:

  • your favorite quote from previous GALM posts
  • books you've read because of the quotes you've read here
  • an all-time favorite quote

I hope to award one prize for each category and I will do so if there are at least 10 entries in each. The prizes include How Fiction Works by James Wood, and hard cover editions of two recent YA books that have garnered lots of praise: The Maze Runner by James Dashner, and If I Stay by Gayle Forman.

And maybe a mystery gift. Stay tuned.


You may enter in as many of these categories you'd like, but unfortunately, I can only send prizes to addresses in the Continental USA.

Tell your friends via facebook, tweeter, blogs, forums if you wish but it's not necessary. If you like my blog and would like to follow my journey, I'd love it but again, that is not the point of this contest. I just want to have a great party.

So, come one, come all. Virtual food and beverages
and balloons and confetti and will be provided, but BYOQ: bring you own quotes.

See you at the party.

BYOQ (*snort*)

I'm going to try to hunt some good ones! I'm terrible at finding new quotes, though....

I'll be hunting up a favorite quote...I think I know which one it is already.

I love the idea to retire GALM with a party! It'll be hard to pick one favorite quote though ...

Thanks, friends!

*sniff* I liked GALM...

I just started reading The Maze Runner last night. I borrowed it from a friend. I'm having a hard time getting into it. Have you read the book? Did you enjoy?

I'll have to go back and look at old posts to pick a favorite.

I liked GALM too, but I also appreciate that some good things must come to an end. I'll stay tuned and try to come up with something good!

Sherrie and Davin: thanks for telling me you liked it. But thanks for being understanding as well.

Hope to gather some lovely quotes next week.
