01/26/2006: It rarely pays to be a blogger....
but occasionally one gets interesting freebies.
Rachel "and the City" Hurley just got the most interesting (if not out and out most valuable) of anyone I "know" (hey, she and I have been in the same room together on at least one occasion, which is a closer acquaintanceship than I have with, say, Halle Berry): a trip to Amsterdam, courtesy of Holland.com. So go by "Rachel and the City', wish her bon voyage, and withstand the pledge drive (it's brief and relatively painless).
I've not gotten anything that nice (and probably never will; I'm not "totally famous on the internets!" and never will be), but somehow I managed to find myself on a list of recipients of a review copy of a soon-to-be-published novel:
Now, I've just got to somehow get my life under enough control so I can take the time to read it. And maybe even review it.
Now that I've broken into the ranks of Interweb book reviewers..... ;-) I'm actually hoping that I will get chosen to receive a review copy of a book that I'm really interested in reading and reviewing. I'm not going to mention the title, because I don't want to jinx myself, but trust me.... If I rate a review copy, y'all are going to be the first to hear about it.
