Contest Winner & Dinosaurs

The contest winner is…

Hannah! E-mail me your address and I’ll ship out your Dessen book right away. Thanks for everyone who entered! We just got a few awesome donations in at the library, so expect another one of these soon.

As for the dinosaur answers, I loved them all. My favorite has always been the brachiosaurus. I mean, he’s just so cool with his big neck and all. For my 23rd birthday, S brought me to Dinosaur World, a large road-side attraction with tons of, well, dinosaurs.

It was as glorious and silly as  you could imagine.

So it was only natural for us to have dinosaurs at our wedding, too.

If there were ever a way to my heart, it’s clearly through extinct animals.

A Contest!

I have survived my first week at the library. And you know what? I love it! I’ve had some ridiculously awesome reference questions (“Can you help me find a book about the Holocaust and puppets?”), and seen some ridiculously adorable children talking about dinosaurs (we have a dino display). I’m so happy with the job, it’s almost frightening.

And because of that, I want to celebrate by giving stuff away! Like most libraries, we have a mini store that sells donated books. I’ve decided that periodically, whenever a book I love is dropped off, I’m going to purchase it and give it away on my blog. Because I love you all. And I love supporting libraries. And I love books. So here’s my first giveaway!

The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen

adore Dessen’s books. They’re so rich and beautiful and engaging. This is one of my favorites. So when I saw it on the shelf, I had to adopt it. Like I said, it’s a used book so it has some wear (bent pages), but otherwise it’s perfectly fine.

Want the Dessen book? Comment below! Tell me your favorite dinosaur, and you’ll be entered to win it. Deadline March 22nd. Good luck!
