I've been intending for the past week to write a blog entry on school and library program ideas for Life As We Knew It and the dead & the gone, but things keep happening.
Today's interruption comes from the Garden State. I am thrilled to announce that Life As We Knew It is the teen winner of 2009 One Book New Jersey.
I know I voted for it once, and so did my brother and sister-in-law and my agent (they all live in New Jersey), and I do believe some of you voted as well (I seem to recall a reference to a former boyfriend from Hackensack, or was it Paramus), but I choose to believe some actual teenagers from New Jersey voted for it as well.
It is a New York Times best seller, you know. Somebody must like it.
If you follow the link sufficiently, you'll discover a variety of One Book New Jersey shirts available for purchase. With winter coming, I'm favoring the hoodie myself. And the teddy bear. And the refrigerator magnet.
Life as I know it has lots of happy new shopping posibilities. Thank you New Jersey!
