Please join me in the Library-Loving Blog Challenge! Jennifer Hubbard is an amazing writer. When I read about Jenn’s plan to raise money for libraries, I knew I wanted to take part. I’ve already blogged about my love for the Gulfport library. It’s been five years since the storm and the main library is still operating out of a trailer while the powers that be try to decide what to do with the skeleton of the old building. If I were a multi-millionaire I’d build them a beautiful new building in a heartbeat. (And I’d also rebuild Marine Life, but that’s another story.)

This is something I can do for them right now, with y’all’s help. For every commenter on this post between now and Saturday night at 9pm CDT, March 27, I will donate one dollar to my local library, the Harrison County Library System, up to $150, which I’ve asked to be ear-marked for teen fiction.

How easy could it be? You comment, I cough up the money, the library gets a gift! If you don’t know what to say in your comment, “I love libraries” will do.

Note that my pledge is “per commenter”—so if a single person leaves 50 comments, that still only counts once! But you can do more by spreading the word ... please link to this post, tweet about it, and send your friends here so they can comment and raise more money.

If you’re moved to make a flat-fee donation to your library, or to start your own challenge, that’s awesome too! Keep me posted in the comments below!

For a complete list of participating bloggers (and to visit other sites where you can help libraries just by leaving a comment!) visit Jennifer Hubbard’s blog at http://writerjenn.livejournal.com/ .

As a special thank-you for helping me to help the Gulfport- Harrison County library, I’m giving away two new releases:

Carrie Ryan’s THE DEAD-TOSSED WAVES and Lindsey Leavitt’s PRINCESS FOR HIRE

On Saturday night I’ll put the names of every commenter in the sorting hat and randomly pick two winners. Anonymous posters, remember to include your name in the comment if you want to be in the drawing!

Ready? Set? Let the comments commence!
