This week's Scoop is going to be short and sweet, but some important info will be here, so please READ THIS if you happen to be cruising around the site.
To start, yesterday we promised we would have some WINNERS around here and well, promises have to be kept! We picked our winners a bit differently this time. We choose from the people who have left comments since after our last "Sunday Scoop", and are going to send you each a surprise book! WE DID SEND AN EMAIL TO THOSE OF YOU WHO'S EMAIL ADDRESS WE COULD FIND, BUT IF YOUR NAME IS ON THE WINNER'S LIST AND YOU DID NOT GET AN EMAIL, PLEASE SEND US AN EMAIL TO TLGBRS@GMAIL.COM WITH YOUR MAILING ADDRESS AND YOUR ONLINE NAME SO WE KNOW WHO YOU ARE.
ALSO VERY IMPORTANT....YOU MUST, AND WE WILL REPEAT, MUST BE A FOLLOWER OF OUR SITE TO BE ELIGIBLE TO WIN A PRIZE. THIS IS NOT A NEW RULE, IT IS STATED PLENTY OF PLACES. SO IF YOU DO NOT SEE YOUR NAME HERE, IT IS BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT A CURRENT FOLLOWER. ALSO A REMINDER THAT IF YOU ENTERED THE CONTEST AND ARE NOT A FOLLOWER (THAT MEANS YOU MUST BE INCLUDED IN THE LIST ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE SITE TITLED "FOLLOWERS") THEN PLEASE FOLLOW OR YOU WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE FOR ANY OF OUR PRIZES. OK THE WINNERS OF A SURPRISE BOOK FOR THIS WEEK ARE:
ANN DIANA DINH
Again, if you did not receive an email, we could not find your email address, so send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address as well as your inline name so we know who you are. Also, we might wait a few days to send your books out as we are expecting a shipment from a few publishers and might send you one of those books that come!
Now that we got that squared away, we are going to make this a quiet Scoop. Besides the usual going on, the Gang had a fairly busy week. A ton of new books came in from publishers for the contest and more are on their way!
SINCE THE CONTEST HAS BEEN VERY SUCCESSFUL SO FAR, WE HAVE ALMOST REACHED THE MAX # OF COMMENTS ALLOWED PER POST. DO NOT FRET, AS THERE WILL BE MORE OF YOU ENTERING AS WELL AS SOME OF YOU COMING BACK TO GET YOUR EXTRA ENTRIES OVER THE NEXT FEW WEEKS, WE WILL MAKE A NEW POST RIGHT ABOVE THIS ONE AS A "CONTINUATION" OF THE CONTEST. LEAVE YOUR COMMENTS THERE AND WE WILL JUST USE BOTH POSTS WHEN PICKING OUR WINNERS AT THE END OF THE CONTEST.
Our pinstripe boys (the YANKEES) are currently taking a shot at going up 3 games to 1 over the Phillies in the World Series, so the Gang is going to go back to cheering on their home team! As always, keep your eyes open as we have some reviews that will be posted this week that are a tad bit "different" than our usual ones. Of course we will continue to review the usual, but we thought we would read a few different kinds of books over the last few days for fun and share them with you.
Don't forget to visit us this coming Thursday when the Gang goes over to Whole Foods and learns how to make dumplings from Master Chef Wai Hon Chu! We will be sharing our experience as well as giving away a signed book form the event "The Dumpling" to one lucky winner! Also, coming this week, we will spotlight Barnes and Noble's soon to be released E-Reader, the "NOOK" which we are super excited about and can not wait to get our hands on. Unfortunately, it will not be out until the end of November, but that's ok.... waiting is half the fun!
That's all for this week. Thanks for checking us out and hope to see you soon!
The Lateiner Gang
