Hey, everyone, our first winners have claimed their prizes from the Boys Rule Boys Read Book Series tournament. The first lucky lad is Savage Stephen, who came in sixth. Here he is: Yes, that is a girl with him, but it's Rockin' Rebecca, his sister. They are holding up his prizes; Shipwreck and The Rescue, two books by Gordon Korman. (Shipwreck is an awesome book--look up the post of 8-3-07 and find out) Stephen got one book for shooting a three-pointer and one for writing his first review. (Don't forget that everyone who writes a reivew gets a free book) Our other winner is Crafty Carl M: Hmmm, too much flash in that picture! He's not holding up a book because, as one of the top three, he got to pick a book listed in the tournament and we'll have to order it. I won't say which one it is, but it's the latest one of that series and not out in paperback yet. Betcha can't guess!!!
I agree with Bill--this was one exciting tournament and everyone did well and everyone, readers and writers, were winners.

And now, talking about exciting, there are ONLY TWO MORE WEEKS until the new Percy Jackson book, The Battle of the Labyrinth, comes out!!!!! Can I stand it??? Guess I'll have to. In the meantime, here's a video of Rick Riordan, the author, reading a portion of the first chapter:

Doesn't that have one the best first lines you've ever heard??? Do you know who the red-haired girl is? I think I do. BUT I'VE GOT TO WAIT TWO WEEKS TO FIND OUT!!! Hope you all are as excited as I am!!

PS--Private note to Anonymous. I got your message and tried to respond but not sure it worked. We need to know what book you'd like and when you plan to come here. You don't have to reveal your secret identity, but we do need to know so we'll have your prize ready. Just contact us the same way you did before.
