You may know that my personal blog was down a few days ago. Because of that blip, I somehow lost a few days worth on the Unconventional Librarian as well.  What this means is that if you commented on Unconventional Librarian AFTER December 3rd, you comment (and therefore you giveaway entry) is not here.  I DO have the emails as back up, but just to make sure, PLEASE comment again so that I make EXTRA SURE! I don’t want to leave anyone out so, I’m going to extend the giveaway ANOTHER WEEK to allow you to catch me up!

Thanks for reading and GOOD LUCK!!

Contest will run through December 17, 2010.


My first giveaway-Frankie Pickle and the Closet of Doom by Eric Wight

My favorite local bookstore, Trappe Book Center recently celebrated 20 years in business last month with a number of popular authors popping by for a visit.  One of the authors who visited was Eric Wight, a young man who writes and illustrates his own books.  Wight has written a series of books about Frankie Pickle, a “kid with the world’s most amazing imagination!” As you can imagine, Frankie’s imagination leads him to adventure and trouble, it’s HILARIOUS!

Never one to want to be left out of a party and continuing the book store’s success I am excited to present my very first giveaway!!
