Help a brother out

Want a shot at winning a $50 Amazon gift certificate today AND help out a really good guy? Robison Wells wrote a great book called Variant, just out from Harper Teen. Kenny, James and I all read it last week and had a great time discussing it. Well, Robison's had some amazingly crudtastic things happen to him lately and a friend of his came up with the idea to "Book Bomb" him, organizing a one day effort to buy copies on Amazon and drive his sales up to get the book some well-deserved exposure.

The awesome Luisa at Kashkawan is offering you a chance to win a $50 Amazon gift certificate. She explains the whole story about Rob, his disorder, the fall out, and how you can help. It's easy: buy a book. If you have anyone in the 10+ range, this would a great gift and TODAY is the perfect time to buy it.

To enter the contest, check it out here.

To just straight up buy the book because it was a well-done, fast-paced read, just click right over here. Publisher's Weekly named it one of their Books of the Year. I don't make this stuff up, you know.

And I promise to be back soon with tales of ridiculousness. Seriously. It's just that lately there have been lots of good causes.

I love the idea of a book bomb! I just participated.

I'm SO on board with this! I'm giving away a book on my site today as well as entering Luisa's contest. The more the merrier!

p.s. Crudtastic—You are awsome.

I loved this book, and I ordered two more today to give away on my blog.

Rob's wife is my cousin. Our grandpa's were brothers. I hung out with her once at a family reunion. I dig her and so I dig him. Just bought the book for my iphone. I'm on page 50. It rocks. And I hate dystopians.

There ARE a lot of good causes any more, aren't there? I just love this blogging community, who are so willing to help when there's a need. I'll pop over and check out that book; I don't have a single person in my family who fits that age group, but if I can help I will. And thank you so much for putting the LDSBC widget on your site. Did you see we've already raised nearly $8,000?? I'm serious -- it's bloggers at their best.
