The winning author photo is... Formal-ish! Thanks to the 250 people who voted. Total landslide:
(The secret is that it's actually a photo from my wedding day, but you can't REALLY tell that... right? And I loved how AmandaSue said, "it just seems more you," which is what I'm going for overall.)
Anyway, the winner of Gayle Forman's Where She Went--chosen randomly from the comments--is... Julia, That Hapa Chick! And I realize I forgot to announce a winner for the week before last's giveaway for Ruta Sepetys's Between Shades of Gray... oops! That winner is Ariel! Send me your addresses, J and A.
This week, I'm throwing Win-It Wednesday over to Readergirlz, where Figment and Readergirlz are encouraging everyone to Rock the Drop tomorrow (Thurs, 4/14) to support YALSA's Teen Lit Day! That means leaving a YA title or two out in a public place for someone else to find (you can get a bookplate to explain the donation here). If you do that, and then email a photo of your dropped book or share the story with readergirlz AT gmail.com, you're entered to win the full set of E. Lockhart's Ruby Oliver books, which make me so happy. They are seriously GREAT.
So pick a book to give away (you know your shelves are crowded anyway!) and let readergirlz know when you Rock the Drop!
