book, banner, blog

1. The winner of the second copy of The Replacement is MADIE C! Madie, please e-mail me your mailing address and we’ll get that book to you ASAP.

2. I want to draw your attention to the lovely new banner, designed by Rachel. She is an author and designer and superwoman and I am so thrilled that she was willing to design a banner for the blog. Do you love it as much as I do? (The answer is: Yes.)

3. Tomorrow on the blog I think we’ll have a conversation on books and movies. So be thinking of your favorite film/television adaptation of a book and we’ll discuss. But we’re going to keep it positive–just favorites, not unfavorites.

    #2 – I kind of think you should get the whole banner made into a T-shirt. I’d wear it. Proudly.

    I love the banner — very pretty, and the placement of MATCHED’s cover is well put.

    Yes! Beautiful banner! So very coordinated.

    Books and movies will be a great discussion. My husband was scandalized to find out that I’d never actually read Pride and Prejudice by my senior year of college…but I’d seen three movie versions. 🙂

    (p.s.-I’ve read it now.)

    Dear Mrs. Condie,
    Hello. I’m Sara Clark. I’m a 13 year old in New Jersey, and I am on chapter 10 of Matched. I love it so far! It is amazingly detailed and the story line is wonderful! I love to read and write in my free time. I am doing a report on Matched and Crossed for school, and I was just wondering if you could email me back, when you get the chance, some information about yourself. What movies do you like? Who influenced you to start writing? What inspired you to write Matched, then Crossed? Thank you for your time.
    Sara Clark
