Today has been a day of surprises, but one surprise was not as shocking as the other. Today, I’m featured on The Writer’s Center‘s First Person Plural blog. I talk a bit about the blog and its beginnings and what my main focus is among other things. I hope you’ll take a minute to go on over and comment.

Secondly, I received a pleasant surprise today when the winners of the Summer for Gomez winners were announced.  Check out the announcement below.

Summer of Gomez Winners

Thanks to everyone who decided to make the summer of 2011 an official Summer of Gomez! I for one had a lot of fun and lost only a little bit of hair (and a few teeth) over the administration. A small price to pay of course.
Let’s try something great next year as well.

I’ve never owned an e-reader before, but if anyone has some tips, please share them. I’m not sure I’m ready to completely give up my hard copies, but I’m willing to give this new device a try. Any pros and cons you’d like to share, feel free. Oh, and naturally anything I should watch out for when downloading books and dealing with Amazon would be appreciated.
