Last Day To Shoot 3-Pointers!

Nick Fury says, "Awright, you goldbricks, today is April 16, the last day to send in your votes and reviews for the Books Series Championship. Unless you're held captive in HYDRA Headquarters, let's hear from you by 9:oo pm tonight!!"

That's right, Nick. Today's the last chance to let you all determine which book series will win it all--and which readers will win our three prizes. Just to remind you, the prizes are:

First place will get to choose between an autographed T-shirt from the UNCC Men's Basketball Team, an autographed poster by the UNCC Men's Basketball Team, or a book of your choosing (softcover) from all the contenders in the tournament. Second place will be a choose between the two remaining items. Third place will be the remaining item. If you live near in the Charlotte area, you could come to Imaginon to claim your prize. If you live out of town or can't get to Imaginon, we will send your prize to you.

Cyber kid 303 has taken us up on the challenge and sent us three new reviews!

The Haunted School by R.L. Stine is all about some kids named Ben and Tommy who get trapped in another world. Thaila is one of their friends who is actually one of the original kids from the other world called Greyworld. It's very scary with some psycho kids who want to throw Ben and Tommy into a pit.

Baseball season is here and a good baseball book to read is Stealing Home by Matt Christopher. He writes books about all sports, so I'm sure you can find one of his books about your favorite sport, too. This one is about an exchange student who comes to live with a kid named Joey. It turns out the exchange student is very good at baseball and helps out on the local team. There are a couple of jerks on the other team who make fun of him and he doesn't understand it. Joey sets them straight in the end.

Who Really Killed Cock Robin is an ecological mystery by Jean Craighead George. It's a good book to read for Earth Day. It's all about a town trying to find out who killed a robin. I learned a lot about pollutants, birds and the food chain. Keep the earth clean and healthy!

Very well done, cyber kid! Those three shots put you in first place with 25 points. Second is Carl M. with 24. Third is Anonymous with 19. It's really close; only a few points separate all of you. So if you want to be sure to win the top spot, shoot us some more three-pointers! Many a game has been won by that last shot right at the buzzer!

Carl and Bill
