Get Well Soon Audiobook Contest!

Yeah, it's time for another contest. I was sort of saving it, to spread the contests out, but then I thought, why? I can have another contest soon to win Into the Wild Nerd Yonder buttons (oooooh!), a Get Well Soon paperback contest, and then, soon enough, a full-on Nerd hardcover contest. Calm down, calm down. Let's not get ahead of ourselves.

Today begins the Get Well Soon audiobook contest! If you love audiobooks (and who doesn't?), or if you love Get Well Soon (I sure hope you do), or if you just love me (um, no pressure, really), then please enter to win one of three, that's right, THREE copies of Get Well Soon on audio. These are finely crafted, Listening Library audio CDs, ladies and germs, all in a shiny, yellow plastic case. Read by the wonderful Mandy Siegfried. Here's the lowdown on Get Well Soon (just in case you don't already know):
Anna Bloom is depressed—so depressed that her parents have committed her to a mental hospital with a bunch of other messed-up teens. Here she meets a roommate with a secret (and a plastic baby), a doctor who focuses way too much on her weight, and a cute, shy boy who just might like her.

But wait! Being trapped in a loony bin isn’t supposed to be about making friends, losing weight, and having a crush, is it?

In her fiction debut, Julie Halpern finds humor in the unlikeliest of places, and presents a character whose voice—and heart—will resonate with all of us who have ever felt just a little bit crazy.

Here's the ol' webpage link to get the full on scoop.

All you have to do to enter is comment on this blog post about anything. Could be about this post, could be about SYTYCD, could be about what you had for dinner last night. I'll draw the three winners in one week (if I remember to do it next Thursday. Otherwise, possibly next Friday. It's kind of like at the end of voting shows, where they say, "The phone lines will be open for at least two hours after the show." What's that about? How do you know when to stop calling then?).

Good luck, loyal listeners!

I think Romy is the cutest thing ever. Last night we went to the Home Town Buffet and had oodles of comfort food for dinner. My grandchildren Ina and Elan can both sit up and play with each other.
Love, Uncle Leonard

I haven't read this book so it would be great to win it. And it would actually be my first audio book because I don't really buy audio books.

I loved the book and I guess I could love you if we ever actually met or talked or maybe even if I saw you walking down the street eating ice cream (love at first sight totally happens). So I'm guessing that Into the Wild Nerd Yonder is a new book by you. Do I guess correct? I'm sure I do and with such will most certainly be on the look out to buy for me and my library. Well thanks for this opportunity to win an audio book. I have a road trip coming up in August and this would be perfect (hint, hint) Just kidding, well kind of.......

Sounds like a great read! And I have a long road-trip coming up that could use an audio book.

(Also? On SYTYCD, Evan goes to my college! Naturally, he's my favorite.)

Sigh, I can never call into voting shows because I always tivo them and watch them days later when the real life has already happened.

And I must say that Into the Wild Nerd Yonder is totally my favorite title that I've heard in a while. Also, audiobook contests are super cool and Get Well Soon sounds fabulous!

Okay, did you know that there are approximately 15,000 babies born every hour?
