Contest: Artichoke's Heart

To win a copy of Artichoke's Heart by Suzanne Supplee, reviewed here, leave a comment on this post. This is an ARC I have to give away, not a hardcover. I *think* I have two copies, but I'm not sure. (They were sent by the publisher to my US address, so...)

1 entry per person.
+ 1 if you post about this week anywhere. (If you already did so for another contest or just because you're awesome, no need to do it again. It's a universal +1 pass for ya :P Just leave me a link on your entry this time, too.)

+ 1 if you post about this contest/the review/Suzanne's post.
+ 1 for a secret criterion. (Yeah, I suck like that.)

Contest ends on Dec 21st. Remember all participation on this week's posts counts. (I'm just saying.)

Thanks for the giveaways, you and the authors are simply awesome. And paperback is nicer than hardcover imo, by the way.

I would love to read this book. I've had a major weight struggle since starting college, and most "fat girl lit" is far from inspirational/entertaining to me. This sounds great!

Your Artichoke's Heart review & the author's guest post inspired me. I started out my own post with a mention of those here-- http://teenbookreview.wordpress.com/2008/12/15/body-image-books/. And, again, where I originally posted about Girl Week: http://teenbookreview.wordpress.com/2008/12/14/girl-week-at-reviewer-x/.

I am intrigued by your secret criterion. Will you reveal it at the end?

Chicklish said...

I actually like the idea of a secret criterion. I'll imagine that it involves a canoe, two woodland creatures, an ancient Greek puzzle, and a redhead called "Larry" by his aunt - his name's actually Jack-o. (I did have a final this morning. But just because I'm a little out of my mind doesn't mean it wouldn't be cool.)

I found another thing you can't do if you don't update to IE7--you can read all these super fun posts, but you can't comment on them unless you find someone's computer (with IE7) to borrow!

I'll have to find a way to participate telepathically or something :D

A lady in a faded gingham dress and her husband,wow gold dressed in a homespun threadbare suit, stepped off the train in Boston, and walked timidly without wow gold an appointment into the president of Harvard’s outer office .The secretary could tell in a moment that such backwoods country folk had not business at Harvard, and probably didn’t even deserve to be in Cambridge .She frowned. ”We want to see the president,” the man said softly.” He’ll be busy all day,” the secretary snapped.” We’ll wait,” the lady replied.

For hours, the secretary ignored them,wow gold hoping that the couple would finally become discouraged and go away. They didn’t. And the secretary grew frustrated and finally decided to disturb the president. ”Maybe if they just see you for a few minutes, wow gold they’ll leave,” she told him. He signed in exasperation and nodded. Someone of his importance obviously didn’t have the time wow gold to spend with nobodies, but he detested gingham and homespun suits cluttering his office.

The president, stern-faced with dignity, strutted toward the couple .The lady told him, ”We had a son that wow gold attended Harvard for one year .He loved Harvard, and was very happy here. But he was accidentally killed. And my husband and I would like to erect a memorial to him somewhere on campus. ”The president wasn’t touched, and she was shocked, ”Madam,” he said gruffly, ”we can’t put up a statue for every person who attended Harvard and died, this place would wow gold look like a cemetery.

“Oh, no“ the wow gold lady explained quickly, “we don’t want to erect a statue .We thought we would give a building to Harvard.” The president rolled his eyes. He glanced at the gingham dress and homespun suit, and then exclaimed, ”A building! Do you have and earthly idea how much a building costs? We have over seven and a half million dollars in the physical plant wow gold at Harvard.
