Winner of IWBYJR and chance to win $130 worth of books!

The winner of the signed copy of Stephanie Kuehnert's I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone is...macbeaner! Woo-hoo!

For everyone who isn't macbeaner, it's time to go out and buy the book. If you'd like to know why, be sure to read my review and my interview with Stephanie.

BUT WAIT!! If that's not enough incentive, Shooting Stars Magazine is holding a contest to win $130 worth of book store gift certificates. To enter, all you have to do is buy I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone and send either the receipt or a picture of yourself with the book to Lauren at by July 30. See the official announcement for more details.

I'm definitely entering. *drools at the thought of $130 worth of books*

Now I'm off to do a few tasks before I go AWOL for my birthday. Wish me luck getting a good birthday song (that's the first song I hear on the radio after my birth-minute). I'll be sad to say goodbye to Nirvana's "Heart-Shaped Box." They don't get any better than that. Except maybe the year before, when it was "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer" by George Thorogood and The Delaware Destroyers.

Anyway, y'all have some book shopping to do. And remember: buy early, buy often.
