Thanks, rgz. These chats are always such fun. I seem to be getting better at keeping up. Not good, but better.

Thank you to everyone! The chat was great tonight!

Lorie Ann - I just really enjoy YA fiction and think that rgz is very-much amazing. I've been reading the blog for ages (ever since Erin told me about it). I also love to write, and am anxious to become better at it :)
I wish soooo much that there was a readerguyz, and I would totally start it if I had the time. I know about guyslitwire, but their tastes don't line up with mine nearly as well as rgz's.

(on a side note, seeing as I'm already up on the podium... I think you should provide a "readerguy" version of the TBD sticker in future. I had to photoshop my own this year.)

Georgia, Kat, and Jayme are our book winners tonight! Want to send your snail mails to readergirlzatgmaildotcom and Melissa will scoop you up? Congrats!

And thanks to everyone for stopping in tonight. Posters and lurkers. :~)

Lorie Ann Grover said...

Awesome, David. And yes, we need guy stickers! Thanks for helping us out last year. :~) You are so welcome to hang with us.

Just caught your email, Jayme. Thanks!

I understand, Lori!

Yay, JenFW!

Thanks, Vivian, and Erin!

Melissa Walker said...
