First, the randomly chosen winner of the Lancome Color Fever Gloss is Heart-Broken Yet Again! I hope this helps, HBYA! Send me your address.This week's prize is fantastic--it's an autographed copy of Scott Westerfeld's Uglies, the first of the bestselling four-part trilogy (hmm...) about a future where a mandatory operation at 16 makes everyone conform to an ideal standard of beauty. I'm sure you guys have, um, heard of it. So, to win, just post on this blog or on myspace, and tell me: What makes you pick up a book and buy it? Is it the cover? The blurb from another author? The back-page summary? Reading the first page and falling in love? Some combination of those things? Or something else entirely? Enough questions: Do tell. Thanks--and good luck! PS-I'll be reading from Elizabeth Scott's Bloom tonight at the New York Public Library, Tompkins Square. Come if you can!
