Take a look at the prize page and tell me what you want!

I have just loved opening up my email to read your reviews-thanks for being your thoughtful, funny, honest, wonderful selves.

Let me know what you want Daystar and summerhippee…also stay tune for some rather odd posts this week…

And I’ll post on the day we draw for the nano…Aug. 31!

Best! Aubri

Lannigirl is this weeks winner!  Congrats!  Click the prize tab at the top of this page and tell me what prize you want.
SOMETIME in the next 2 weeks I will post a short video of myself doing the moon walk in the lion outfit because YOU DID IT!  We are above 200 posts!  Yaoo!

One last week of summer reading…our last prize draw will be Monday the 13th.  It has been so much fun!

This has been a fantastic summer….we have had 21 teens posting from all over the county.

We have two weeks left as our last prize draw is Aug. 10th.  You can still send in reviews until the end of August, but I will be out of prizes!

Now the original challenge of 400 posts seems like it would be crazy to try and get to in two weeks…and I have to tell you I have been really impressed with the quality of your postings.  I wouldn’t want you all to just buzz through your books and email me any old thing in order to just get something up on the blog.

SO here is what I plan.  If you hit 200 posts by Aug. 10th…I will post a video of myself doing the moon walk in the lion costume.  Maybe not a full blown hip hop dance…but hey I will still look pretty foolish!  27 posts in 2 weeks?  I guess we’ll see…!

Our Winners for Week 5 and 6 July 27, 2009

Posted by Aubri in From your teen librarian, week 5, week 6.

Our winner for week 5 is
Lyndeskier at Lynden

And for week 6
newsaxonycitizen at (mostly) Ferndale

Yahoo! Congrats! Click the prize tab at the top of this page to see your options.

If your main library is Bellingham I forward all those posts to Jennifer so you can be entered in the BPL prize drawing because Jennifer does all the prizes for Bellingham Teens. 🙂

To claim your prize all you need is to be a teen with a Whatcom County library card. I’ll be emailing you to find out if you want me to mail you the prize or if you want to pick it up at your library. I don’t work at the Ferndale or Lynden library every day, so the prize won’t be there right away-I’ll email you when I send it off and when I think it will be at your local library!

Thanks for the great reviews.

I’m Back! July 27, 2009

It is so great to get back and read about what you have been reading in the last week! I missed checking the blog. Most the time I was hiking and camping in areas with no cell phone or internet access. I swam a ton, read a ton, hiked a bunch and had a great time.

I finished reading Gone which my friend Kyla who works at Lynden suggested to me…the story is about a town where everyone 15 and older disappears, and the teens that are left have survive on their own. Some of them start developing special powers…definitely reminded me of X-men. I found it pretty dark and spooky…you can just imagine that the bullies try to take over and there are a couple of monsters as well. All that said I can’t wait to read the second one.

Okay, I am going to have to do a bit of organizing here and do a drawing for the last 2 weeks…so more soon!

Road Trip July 20, 2009

Hey Everyone!

Right now I am on a road trip with my sister…so the prize drawing will be next Monday and we will do 2 instead of one.  I have some friends at work who are posting your reviews and comments until I get back.  It’s great to be able to see what you are all reading even though I’m out of town.

We’ve been camping near the Columbia River and now we are heading to British Columbia to camp and swim.  I have a whole pile of books I hope I get to read on the beach.  We are traveling with a plastic pig and taking pictures with him everywhere we go.  I’ll post some to the blog when we get  back!

Oink, Aubri

Our Winner this Week is Polka_Dot! Total posts: 137 July 13, 2009

Take a look at the prize page and see what looks good to you!  Let me know if you would like me to mail the prize or send it to Lynden Library for you to pick up.

The thunder last night was amazing.  I tried to read in the middle of the night after I woke up but I fell asleep on my book!

Have a great week everyone! We are at 137 posts and half-way through summer reading!

🙂 Aubri

All right.  I’ll admit you have hit a landmark…100+ posts.  So I had to go try on the head.  You know if you hit 400 posts in August I will seriously do a hip hop dance in the lion costume.  Yes, I will look like a total fool just to see if I can keep you reviewing.

I still feel pretty safe though  ’cause 300 more posts is so many.

If you hit 200 I will put on the full costume, do a headstand and post the picture!
