Reviewing goodness  
I am very, very excited.

Why am I so excited, you ask, and is this an indication that people should be running and hiding about this point in time? Well, usually I'd say yes to the second one, but not in this particular case.

We are holding our very first contest here at genrereviews. It's open immediately, and the deadline is April 23, at 11:59pm, which gives you two weeks. (Don't worry, I'll add an edit letting you know the contest's closed so you'll know if you made it in time or not.)

Here's how to enter:

-Write a review of a book you've read. Good book, bad book, children's book, I don't care. So long as it's something that's been published, I'm not going to be picky.
-Put your review up on your blog with a link to this entry.
-Leave me a comment here to let me know you've entered.

That's it! Alternately, if you don't have a blog, you can e-mail me your review at genrereviews@gmail.com.

Prizes? So glad you asked!
-20$ worth of gift certificates at the online bookstore of your choice
-your review will also be featured here as a guest spot

Write the review however feels best to you. Enthusiastic, ranting, or served with super snark, whatever style you like. Essentially, Sarah and I will pick the one that entertains us the most, which could be because it made us laugh so hard we cried, or maybe it just made us really desperate to get our grubby little paws on that book.

So let's get those entries rolling in! The clock's a-ticking! (Or calendar. Or something.)

Edit: This contest is now closed. Kisses and thanks to everyone who participated.

Yaay! That exciting. I'm excited, can you tell? I promise not to be too horribly mean... ;)

I'm glad to be here. It is such a good community. While I do love 50bookchallenge and others it is great to see posts just about other things like the amazon situation, pet peeves and loves and the like.

I'm going back over some of the old entries to read.

Yeah, we certainly have our fair share of bookish randomness. I love being able to talk about the reader's world beyond the pages of the books themselves, especially with other readers.
