Palace of Stone GIVEAWAY (did I mention it was INTERNATIONAL?)

Current Theme Song (aka what's playing on my ipod right now): L-O-V-E by Nat King Cole.

Okay guys. You are in for a TREAT. This is the kind of book you read in one sitting. The kind of book you sink into and lose all shape and sound around you as you become immersed another world entirely. The kind that tickles you and fills you with delight and wide-eyed awe. Shannon Hale is a wonder. As a sequel to one of her most beloved stories (and one she swore she would never write a sequel to, by the way) this one had a lot of expectation riding behind it. This book lived up to it, and in some ways, exceeded those expectations. Like I said, she is a wonder. Even if you have never read read Princess Academy, this is a marvelous story that holds its weight all by itself. And really, don't let the name fool you. This is not like any "princess" book you've ever read.

That is why I am ECSTATIC to be offering a copy to you all--INTERNATIONALLY!!! But really, don't wait for me. Heck, go buy this book today. I'll be here when you get back.

And let me just say - OHMYGOODNESS PAGE #317!!! Yes, I think that is all I can say on that. I care about you too much to spoil that particular paragraph for you. In about a year, I swear I'll quote it in full. :)

Now, onto the contest! And don't forget to read Shannon Hale's interview with Enna! And wish her a happy birthday!
