I believe Blogger hiccuped this morning, which is what I get for fiddling around with old posts. Nevertheless, I'm in an almost alarmingly cheerful mood (I got my Borders Monthly email this morning, and Bloom was in it! My book, alongside books by Holly Black and Meg Cabot and Gabrielle Zevin--whoo!!) so I figure I'm going to indulge in one of my favorite things and....yes, you guessed it. Give away some books!

I've got What Happened To Cass McBride by Gail Giles, Ophelia by Lisa Klein, Things You Either Hate or Love by Brigid Lowry, and Laguna Cove by Alyson Noel, and if you'd like to win one of these books, well,you know the drill. Leave a comment, or send me an email at elizabeth at elizabethwrites dot com, by midnight EST on Friday, the 11th. Then I'll pick four people at random and each of those people will win a book. You can enter even if you've won something from me before, and yes, I will ship books overseas.

And, of course, some links:

Can you find the letters/numbers that are where they shouldn't be? I, um, couldn't.

How to Speak and Write Postmodern -- The instability of your question leaves me with several contradictorily layered responses whoseinterconnectivity cannot express the logocentric coherency you seek. I can only say that reality is more uneven and its (mis)representations more untrustworthy than we have time here to explore. Hee!

Hey Elizabeth! I'm not normally a big movie person, but it seems like a lot of good ones are coming out this summer. I'm most excited about Harry Potter 5 and Pirates 3, but also topping my list are Stardust (I love Neil Gaiman), Knocked Up (it just looks so funny!), and 28 Weeks Later (I really liked the first one).

I also noticed that Bloom was in My Borders Monthly, which made me happy for you :) Anyway, time to go home - yay for the work day being over!

Heyo! Your link broke up in the e-mail so I had to go through my bookmarks to get to your site, but hoorah for books!

I really can't wait to go see "28 weeks later" this saturday, and I'm looking forward to the new movie that the makers of "the 40-year old virgin" have out, a character from Freaks and Geeks is in it, then again he's in like, 5 movies this summer.
(I would high-five you if you knew what "freaks and geeks" was)
