Cheerleading Pays Off in Books

Remember this spring's Readathon? Well guess what? I tied for the prize of most enthusiastic cheerleader. My co-winner is Eva from A Striped Armchair.

Thanks so much for the recognition. It hardly seems like I deserve it because I had a blast. If you didn't read about my escapades as cheerleader, check out my Readathon wrap-up post.

I did, however, accept the honor because it came with a $20 gift card to Powell's! (I'm not crazy!) I've already spent my gift, and I thought it would be nice to let you know what I got. Here's what appeared on my doorstep today:

The first is another collection by Sam Shepard (see my review of Great Dream of Heaven). This one is more personal and includes photographs, poems, and stories. The other two are YA books that I've been meaning to read.

Thanks again to whoever chose me as a prize-winner for the Readathon. I had such a blast, and I'll think of the event when I read these books. In the fall, I'll be faced with the dilemma of reading or cheering, but either way, I'll be involved.

You definitely do deserve it - you were a fantastic cheerleader!

Haha! I was thinking the same thing...read or cheer? Pretty tempting to cheer if you get book bucks! I will be so excited to hear if this collection of Shepard's is as good as Great Dream of Heaven. Congrats on the win!

Congratulations Beth. Without doubt, you were right out there cheerleading the girls. I remember you even got kicked off from Twitter for a while because you had so many updates, lol!
Good for you, it was a wonderful thing that you got rewarded for your efforts.

I am one who truly appreciated your cheerleading during the Read-A-Thon and so I'm very glad you received this great reward. I'm glad you purchased the Sam Shepard collection. I can't wait to hear what you think of it.
