Happy Friday!

Hi everyone! Happy Friday. It's the last week of classes, which means that a grade-a-thon lurks around the corner...

The League of Writers blog is sponsoring a giveaway contest for a copy of all five of the bloggers' forthcoming young adult dystopian novels (XVI by Julia Karr, Across the Universe by Beth Revis, Memento Nora by Angie Smibert, Possession by Elana Johnson, and The Seventh Plague by Jeff Hirsch). Check out the blog here for a chance to win before December 20.

There's a list of donation drives here at the Friends of the Pine Ridge Reservation website, including lists of books requested by schools on the reservation. (Thanks to marthawells.)

From The Chronicle of Higher Education (available to nonsubscribers for five days): "Harry Potter and the Deeply Appreciative Professor."

For those of you interested in 2011 reading challenges, I have more links for you since my last post:
* The 2011 Debut Author Challenge
* The 2011 Speculative Fiction Reading Challenge
* Becky's Book Reviews has a links to additional 2011 challenges

So, what do you think about the forthcoming, first-ever adaptation of Douglas Adams's Dirk Gently novels?

"The door was the way to... to... The Door was The Way. Good. Capital letters were always the best way of dealing with things you didn't have a good answer to."
- Douglas Adams, Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency
