Get Busy!

It's Tell An Author You Care Day, as proclaimed by Emily at whimsy. It's also Emily's birthday, so be sure you check out a list of some of the authors she cares about -- one for each of her years -- and wish her a happy birthday!

Here are Emily's suggestions for celebrating TAAYC Day:
"1. Write a letter or email to a favorite author. I think JK Rowling and Stephenie Meyer receive plenty of fan letters. Think of an author you love that may need a little boost.
2. Write a positive review on Amazon and, if you want to, link to it in your blog.
3. Buy a book by a favorite author and give it to someone who will enjoy it.
4. Profile an author in your blog. I'm not talking just another review. Tell us a little about the author and mention at least one of his/her books that you love."

Leave a comment on Emily's blog, telling her what you did for TELL AN AUTHOR YOU CARE DAY. If you do, you will be entered into a drawing.

I took care of #1 today before I even remembered it was TAAYC Day. I just completed #2, but at Powells, and minus the link. I will, however, let the author know it is there! I'll take care of #3 this very afternoon. (Mo Willems' Elephant and Piggie books are ready to put in the mail to my friend's daughter Sophie.) I'll get busy on #4 after I swim. Stay tuned.
