Shareworthy: Friday, May 22, 2009 [Volume 1, Edition 8]

Every week I bring you things I've found around the blogosphere and web that I like and think I'll share with you. This week might end up a little on the slim side because I'm still catching up from Yosemite. Without further ado:
  • Quick, hurry, Diana Peterfreund is having a contest to win a copy of Sarah Cross's Dull Boy! All you have to do is tell her what your superhero name would be and you can be entered to win. There are more ways to enter too, like making yourself into a superhero... check it out, but it ends this weekend. I'd be Morpho and I made the picture you see here with the blue butterfly wings!
  • Rhonda Stapleton has the first chapter of Stupid Cupid up over at her blog. I'm really excited for this book, so I was especially excited when I saw the first chapter!
  • OCD, Rants, and Vampires linked to a Random House study on the book buying
    habits of Americans
    . I thought it was interesting, you might too.

In case you missed something at IHM this week:

  • Book Inspections galore! Evernight, Silver Phoenix, and Being Nikki.
  • Trixy Trivia deadline is extended until tomorrow at noon my time. It's open worldwide. If you're outside of the U.S., I'll purchase you an e-gift card from wherever you want for the equivalent of $5 USD.
  • Operative Factors this week focused on a visual dictionary - Lexipedia.
  • Minimal Investment was courtesy again of Rachel Caine, so awesome.
  • Enter to win Shanna Swendson's Enchanted, Inc. by guessing her #3 trav
  • el destination!
  • Milk will go sour if left in the refrigerator for six weeks, it's ineluctable.

Also, I've received two more awards!

I received the Enchanted Blog Award from both Kate at Another Book Blog Whore and Jo at Ink and Paper fantasy reviews. Thank you gals! You're both so awesome!

I'd like to pass this on to Shelly at Write for a Reader who just hosted an awesome Children's Book Week. If you don't read her, you should!

The only requirement for this award is that you share it with whomever you like, sharing the love is always a good thing. The blog has to show only one characteristic, caring. So, start sharing this enchanted award with five other bloggers. Let your bloggers know they have received this enchanted award. (Remember, fairies are fickle wee things, don't incur their displeasure by ignoring their gift.)
