This week, Aurora Reviews is posting our interview and review from last summer for The Long and the Short of It review site. So if you didn’t read it then, here’s your chance to catch us in reruns.
And while you’re there, check out The Long and the Short of It third anniversary contest. Three lucky people are winning a Nook. There’s a scavenger hunt, and each time you find a Nook (or rather, a picture of one) on a participating author’s page, you earn an entry in the contest. Yes! We’re participating. I won’t tell you where the Nook is on our site, but you might (cough, cough) consider reading the Geek Girl excerpt.
The contest runs until August 29th, so there’s plenty of time to get your entries in. Good luck!
In Nerd News: Remember Windows 3.1? Or maybe you’ve never even seen Windows 3.1 (!). Why not take a stroll down virtual memory lane with the Windows 3.1 online emulator. Prepare yourself for a visual shock, and while you’re there, you can even play Mine Sweeper. (Go on, click through. You know you want to.)
And what post would be complete without a YouTube video. From the fine, fine people who brought us Do You Wanna Date My Avator comes this new music video:
Have you ever wondered what the sparkly Edward Cullen did before he met his Bella Swan? Of course you have. And have you wondered, in particular, what he was doing during the 1980s? Certainly, as he is +100 years old, the dude was around, right?
Over at QUERYPOLITAN, they may have stumbled upon the answer. In fact, I think their proof is indisputable. Have a read(and for those of you of a certain age, I apologize in advance for the ear worm that has plagued me ever since reading this entry).
And from SlushPile Hell, which is the literary equivalent of Glamour’s “Fashion Don’ts,” we have the results of the Twitter contest: THE WORST SELF-HELP BOOK…EVER. Love self-help books? Love to hate them? Either way, you’ll love this post.
