Okay, so those weren’t real prizes, but maybe they gave you some ideas. Something you’d like to contribute. It doesn’t have to be an escort to the YA prom (which would be freakin’ choice), but don’t worry about your offering being too small. What I’d like to do is pull together several things into prize baskets instead of giving away individual items. So don’t be concerned if someone would really want your signed book, or original sketch, or book themed knitted scarf, or new Lord of the Rings CD. I am honestly contributing a paper bead necklace which is made from magazines, so it’s reading-related and maybe earrings. Maybe you can offer a limited editing or web consultation. Many YA books have lots of characters, I mean one could be named Eisha, right?
If you have something, scroll down my blogroll to my Email MotherReader! button, and send me a line. (I’m not sure why there’s an exclamation point there, but it sure makes it sounds like an exciting thing to do.) Still taking sign-ups at the original post.
Now I’ve got to get my eight-year-old girl ready for Take Your Daughter to Work Day. We’re going to have a blast at the library today. I think I’ll let her shelve the books. Dewey Decimal system, you have now met your match in a working second grader.
