Contest: Win a copy of Girl Goddess #9

I have decided that it is time to hold a contest of OfficiallyMRS.
The prize.... what else, a BOOK! As this is my first contest I am only going to be giving away one book, my copy of Girl Goddess #9, a collection of 9 short stories about girls by Francesca Lia Block published by HarperCollins Publishers.
Here is a synopsis from the jacket of the book:



Welcome to GIRL GODDESS #9, a collection of nine stories about girls by the author of WEETZIE BAT. Here in these pages are girl goddesses of every age and shape and size, wearing combat boots and spiky hair or dressed all in white. One girl has two moms, another has no mother at all but a strange blue-skinned elf that lives in her closet. One is a rock-star groupie, another loves dancing and reading poetry and having picnics in the backyard when the moon is full. Best best girlfriends, lovers gay and straight. Baby goddesses, singing goddesses, dancing goddesses, writing goddesses- all discovering that the world is not a simple place and that there is more than one way to live.


I loved this book and found it a fun read, perfect to get your mind off of your own life and onto someone else's, or in this case a few different peoples'. Just to sit back and enjoy the last bits of nice weather before winter hits.

So here are the groundrules for the contest:

1) You will recieve one entry to the contest if you comment on this blog entry saying that you want to be entered in the contest with your email address.

2) You will recieve three extra entries if you are a follower or become a follower of OfficiallyMRS
3) You will recieve one extra entry if you follow OfficiallyMRS on twitter. You must leave your twitter username with your comment saying that you are now a follower.

3) You will recieve four extra entries if you post an entry about this contest or about OfficiallyMRS to your blog. You must post a link to said entry with your comment.

4) You will recieve one extra entry if you tweet about this contest with a link to OfficiallyMRS. Please make sure that you make this an @ mention otherwise I will not be able to count it as an entry.
Open to residence of the continental US only!
The contest closes on September 21st at midnight central time.

Have fun and good luck!

More to come,

OfficiallyMRS

I told all my students about this contest, but since it's an older post, they might find it tough to locate. Can you make it sticky (so it sits at the top of your posts)?

I am now a follower of your blog (which is very striking, by the way)

the stories you mentioned in this book look really interesting to me, and I'm wondering if this would be good for a k-8 grade library (we have a middle school sections for "older" books)

Please enter me in the contest.

I think that there are certain stories in here that younger kids wouldn't understand. I would stick to middle schoolers.
