Two posts in one day? What's going on?

Well, I'll tell you. In all the excitement (read: brain drain) that's resulted from daylight savings time, it slipped my mind. (Plus I got swept away picturing a world without pennies. Or packing peanuts! Or people who decide your name isn't actually your real name as soon as they meet you!)

Anyway, I forgot all about this week's contest, which actually ties in to what I talked about earlier. Sort of.

What would you do with a billion dollars? (I was going to say a million, but a billion is more fun to think about.)

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, March 16th, 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: Angels on Sunset Boulevard by Melissa de la Cruz, A Northern Light by Jennifer Donnelly, The Minister's Daughter by Julie Hearn, and Fly on the Wall by E. Lockhart

And congrats to last week's winners: Kristen, Amanda, Mary Katherine, and Jessi!

Also, since I forgot to mention this earlier, the first person to email me with their list of five things you'd change if you ruled the world at elizabeth at elizabethwrites dot com will get a couple of books: Magic and Madness by Justine Larbalestier, and Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta.

I would donate the vast majority of the funds. I would keep only the amount needed to buy a house for my mother and to pay for my cat's medical bills.

I allowed a teen customer to borrow THINGS YOU... and she just emailed me to say, "I'm 3/4 done with the book." :)
