Since I'm going to be running weekly contests until May (when the Mega contest will begin), I thought this week we'd talk about one of my favorite things...books!

So, I'd love to hear all about your latest favorite book. What's the one novel you've recently read and loved so much that you told all your friends they had to read it too?

You can tell me by commenting here, or by sending me an email (elizabeth at elizabethwrites dot com) Replies must be in by midnight EST on Friday, January 26th, and then I'll draw four names at random and send each of those four people a book! Though you can only reply once, you can reply no matter where you live (I will ship books overseas), or if you've won something from me in the past.

Books I'll be giving away are: Getting Lost With Boys by Hailey Abbot, Blue Bloods by Melissa de la Cruz, Diary of a Crush: French Kiss by Sarra Manning, and Inside the Mind of Gideon Rayburn by Sarah Miller.

And congrats to last week's winners: Alejandra, Augustina, Sammi, and Caroline!

Elsewhere, the writing speed discussion continues:

Here's John Scalzi's take

Sarah Monette offers some very sensible advice about writing speed, and writing in general

Tobias Buckell offers up some links on the same subject, as well as his own thoughts

Agent Jennifer Jackson weighs in on the subject as well

Caitlin Kiernan discusses the subject of writing speed as well, and has some very interesting things to say.

Hm, well, I guess I didn't exactly tell all my friends about this, but I got The Full Cupboard of Life as a Christmas present and that was a pretty fun read, certainly my most recent. So!
