Hello Everyone!  TLG is back and we have some things we would like to talk about....

First, we want to wish you all out there a "Happy Holidays" from the 4 of us. Are you guys excited to see what is waiting for you under your trees? We bet you are. Of course, once you tear off the wrapping paper and see what special thing lie underneath, feel free to come back here and let everyone know what "most special" present you get this year. Inquiring minds want to know!


This awesome button (which we will thank the awesome Amber for her help yet again!) is located on our Left Side Bar for you guys to grab and throw up on your site. Now, we wouldn't just ask you to do it without expecting let's say.... +10 EXTRA ENTRIES TO THE CONTEST for yourself??? That's right, add our "Contest Button" to your site, link back to it in a new comment IN THE ORIGINAL CONTEST POST ON OUR SITE and add +10 extra entries to the "Nook" giveaway for yourself right under the link. Also... you must create a post or somehow mention our contest and let everyone know to use the button as a link to enter...why??  BECAUSE YOU GET EVEN MORE ENTRIES IF THEY ENTER AND MENTION YOU SENT THEM, REMEMBER?? +5 for each person that signs up to follow, enters the contest, and says you sent them. So, if you are going to add the button, it would make sense to get credit for people using it! We want to generate some more action for the Contest and what better way than to get some extra entries by putting up our button?? Make sure you leave your email address as well and of course, (WARNING: disclaimer about to be repeated for the gazillionth time) make sure you officially follow our site through "Google Friend Connect" on our right side bar. If you have any questions, you can always email them to us at


In an earlier posting we told you that Dave was going to review "The Looking Glass Wars" by Frank Beddor, a NYT Best Selling Author. The Bad news is the "review" is going to have to wait a bit. The excellent news is the reason it is going to have to wait is that Dave is going to be interviewing Frank after the New Year!  This series is amazing and hopefully you have either had the chance to read it or will go out and get it after our posts!  Fingers crossed that we can convince Frank to add to our signature "Triple Threat" group and  give away a signed copy. But, the good news is that he has agreed to an interview! Totally cool and a really nice guy, Frank is much more than just a NYT Best Selling Author. Dave is super excited about this one and hopes that you will be too.

Where Is The Gang Going Next??

Hopefully, if all works out, TLG is going to go into Manhattan tomorrow to see the famous "Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree" which is a huge tree that many tourists come to see every year around the holidays.  Also, we will check out the ice skating rink which is right next to the Tree.  What's really cool about the rink is that it's an actual outdoor ice skating rink in the middle of New York City. For those of you not familiar with what NYC actually looks like, there are not too many things like that smack in the middle of Manhattan. Obviously, we will post up the pics as soon as we take them.  Plus, while in Manhattan on Christmas day, you never know where we might just stop.  We are going to try and have a bunch of fun tomorrow and share it with you guys.

Thanks for tuning in and we will see you real soon!
