Giveaway, Snark, and Banned Books Week

Just a reminder about the Giveaway for Ganymede by Cherie Priest. I'll be closing this early next week and announcing the winner as well. So get on it already!

Also, we've had some great snark so far, which earns the snarkers a couple extra entries (I'll let them know next week along with the winner). Some includes the following:
Gany chance in Hell I'll be the one? I Dread that it's Nought my Tine to Shaker up and win this one. I Fathom I gave it a Shot though! (Todd Tyrna)

What? Another giveaway? This is becoming so.....yeah.... (Tyler A. Childers)

Should I be snarky about the River Song wanna-be on the cover of the book or about the deliciously vague contest rules? Or are you just leaving this up to your readers (good luck with that)? (Jamieson Ridenhour)

Did Gany really have to be in all caps? Also, would it have been to much to add the extra 4 letters to complete the title of the book? It's really not that long of a title.... (Wayne)

I would add a snarky comment, but either I'm tired, or there wasn't much to work with in the giveaway post. (Todd Johansen, although I'm not sure if this is intentional snark)
I'm taking votes for a winner of an extra contest entry (above and beyond the extra entries that all these will be getting) for a future contest?

Finally, Banned Books Week ends tomorrow and I couldn't let the week pass without a mention. Dan Wells wrote a great article earlier this week and then there's another I found arguing for banning certain books that I thought was interesting and lastly a list of commonly banned or challenged books at Layers of Thought.

Yeah, it was intentional snark. With a built-in excuse if it didn't actually work. Fool-proof.

Haha, it was worth two extra entries for the next contest at least. :)
