Book Club

Are you guys in a book club? I am and I really enjoy it. I love books, magazines, newspapers- hell I read my junk mail cover to cover.

I read a lot as a child and distinctly remember the MS Read-A-Thon at primary(elementary) school. It was a program to raise money for multiple sclerosis where you were sponsored by kindly family members and neighbours(actually, anyone willing to give a seven year old money) to read as many books as possible in a designated period of time.

Forget sports, it was a mission for me, I loved the challenge and looked forward to it every year.
In other house keeping news, Nuff Nang are holding their Asia Pacific Blog Awards and I would love it if you nominated me!

It may just send me to Singapore if I make it to the finals, but it could also send you there as well all expenses paid just for nominating. Get typing!

I perceive your request as being very presumptuous. You lure the reader with something which may ignite a memory. This memory then involves a commonality with yourself. A reader could then be seduced to vote for you.
Why not just be upfront and ask straight out for a vote? At least you're being honest.

You start of your blog about the MS-read-a-thon then go directly to a 'vote for me,' with no interconnection?
