1.  Scoreboard Update:

Tex - 1
Ericka - 1
Katy Perry - 0
Everybody Else - 0

There are still points to be won in the first two rounds of the Third Floor Reading Challenge. 

I'll try to think of something else, so people who aren't into books have a chance. 

This round ends at 11:59 PM on December 31, California time.  So if you're on the east coast of the U.S. you have until 2:59 on the morning of January 1.  If you live in the middle, you need to figure out your own time zone math.

2.  I'll be stepping away from this blog for a while.  Here are some blogs you may visit in my absence:

A.J.:  Grad student (about to graduate again), bibliophile, Colorado resident.  Unfortunately, she'll be away for a few days. But she has plenty of good posts to peruse.

Ericka:  Speech teacher, connoisseur of long-haired men, audio book aficionado.

Birgit:  Cinemaphile, card artist, animal lover.

Tex:  Movie challenge sponsor, aspiring novelist, Texan.  (It's such a weird coincidence that she lives in Texas and I call her Tex.)

Jen (not the Jen from my poems about Jen):  Author of After the Gazebo, teacher of creative writing, wife of a man.

Guilie:  Author of The Miracle of Small Things, dog rescuer, music lover.

Mike:  Free lance writer, music lover, fisherman.

Arlee Bird:  Blogging from A to Z sponsor, multiple NaNoWriMo winner, Battle of the Bands regular.
