I'm giving away a $20 Amazon.com gift card! This contest will run until November 26th, with the winner being pulled on the 28th. No entries will be accepted on Thanksgiving, because you should be spending time with your families!

You can gain additional entries by doing the following (but you must leave me the initial comment). Leave a comment for each.

  11. I'm currently finishing the Twilight series for the second consecutive time. And then I need to remove myself from the situation, and read something else for a bit. Before probably going back.

    I also love Kristen Billerbeck, and Donald Miller.

  12. Toni Morrison is a favorite. Song of Solomon, Beloved and The Bluest Eye are just gorgeous works by her.

  13. I think my favorite author of all time is Piers Anthony, though it was a toss up between him and Roald Dahl. I think I like Piers Anthony just a bit more, simply for how prolific a writer he is. I love his Zanth series - they are punny (and funny), and have that dry sarcasm I love mixed in there as well.
