Oh wow--letters written to you by your favorite authors? If I were a kid, my head would be exploding! *boom* What a fantastic idea.
The author of "It's Her Fault" certainly seems to have his head on wrong, but sadly, it's probably not enough reason to fire him. Still disturbing that this guy works with young women. >.

You . . . don't . . . have . . . PICTURES??!! *angry sob* Well, I'm glad you had a good time anyway. :-)
God Bless Judy Blume. Just goes to show what a little attention and prevention can do. I wish her the most outstanding recovery possible.

I don't know . . . a goblin girl? Doesn't sound like standard fare to me. Sounds like an underused mythical creature getting their share of the limelight. And, of course, any comparison to DWJ goes on my TBR! :-)
I LOVE seemingly-unrelated things that come together in the end! This is going on my TBR. And I love your blog more now that I know you love DWJ. I find it . .. "charming" *giggles and runs away*

Just when I promise I won't "waste time" on the internet for ONE day, you show this video. Now my productivity for the morning is shot! Thanks for the laugh. The girl playing Hermione was great.
Agreed re: "Sooo 2005." Will the stupidity never end?

I'm not a fan of "50 Shades" either (not my type of thing), but . . . . book burning? Seriously? Are we trying to emulate Nazi Germany? That's just ridiculous. I'm not crazy about the message the book sends either, but at least in America, you're supposed to have freedom of speech. E.L. James can write what she wants, and you're free to read it or not.

Great. Another bookmark for my browser. No way I can explore all these great sites at once. You've ruined my morning!! ;-)
This sounds like the kind of dark book I can get into--a funny one. Thanks for pointing it out!

Never a dull moment in the "Doom" household, eh? Thanks for the laugh--sorry you had to clean up the, er, um . . . nevermind.
I am sooo glad! I always felt that ending was rather anti-climactic.
"What Adults Can Learn from Kids Books" actually made me tear up! What a well-written (and true!) article. Thank you so much for sharing it.

Ha-ha--I LOVED the one about authors eating! Mine would be "Ilana Waters and the Hot Pocket." ;-)

Apparently, I need to drop whatever I'm working on and write fan fic! It seems to be the way to fame and fortune these days. That is truly bizarre.
This has been a crappy year for authors. Binchy, Sobel, Sendak ... ENOUGH! This is getting sad and freaky :-(

Athlete nerds? Wow--who'd a'thunk it? :-)

If I had the money, I would sooo buy that perfume. Watch out, nerdy boys--here I come! ;-)

Sigh. Just another reason to love him. Like I needed one. Thanks for posting!
I love updated fairy tales like these. I'm reading a similar one now: Heather Dixon's "Entwined." You may want to check it out, if you haven't already.

This is great--there are so few books out there that tackle this issue. And good inspiration for me, since I'm thinking of writing a novel that takes place in a mental institution.
Wow--those are really cute! Sigh...makes me wish I was crafty.

Awesome! Just when I was looking for more e-books. And yes, free (with fairies!) is always the right price. ;-)
I know, right? GR is supposed to be FUN. I'd like to think the folks who read are a better class of people, but apparently, it's getting like "The Hunger Games" out there. No offense to Suzanne Collins, of course :-)
