Weekend Book Give-Away: The Edumacation of Jay Baker

Hello everyone, and welcome to Teen Tech Month!   This month's theme is Geek Out @ Your Library (which some people love, and some people despise).  Me, I like it.  Geeking out to me, is fearlessly showing passion for the things you are nerdily fascinated with, and that is a good thing!  Me, I LOVE to geek out about books.

This week's book is The Edumacation of Jay Baker by Jay Clark (hmmm...thinly veiled embarrassing autobiography perhaps?

In small-town Ohio, fifteen-year-old Jay Baker's popular new blog helps him navigate high school as he faces off against his mortal enemy, meets the girl of his dreams, and watches his parents' relationship implode.    

Blogging, while frequently an awesome way to express yourself and connect with others, is perceived by some folks as a rather geeky activity.  Of course, I think it is pretty awesome ;)

To get entered in the drawing to win this great new hardback book, tell me what your favorite blogs are that you like to read, and what is special about them.


Winner will be selected by my buddy Random Number Generator on Thursday March 8, 2012. Be sure to leave a name with your entry, and check back to see if you won. To win you must be a teen (6th-12th grade, or 12-18) who uses a Sno-Isle Library.

Well...I read a lot of blogs, actually. This one, for sure, because I love books, but there are a number of interesting ones out there besides that. Since I love to bake, I often just go through tons of cooking blogs looking for good recipes (I don't often look for specific foodie blogs), and I also look through my friends' blogs. It's nice to support their work, and I also get a glimpse of a different side of them through their posts. People feel freer posting things online, so I like seeing the various aspects of their personalities shine through.

My favorite blog is Bake It In a Cake where this lady makes awesome recipes that you would never think of such as a Peanut M&M cupcake. I also like to look at all my family members blogs to check up on what they are all doing. I love blogs because they help keep people in touch and inspire people the creator of the blog has never met in their lives.

I don't read blogs usually, but I do like The Big Picture because they are simply just that...pictures! With a small caption occasionally, the amazing photography from all over the world really makes you think that it isn't that small of a world after all and anything can happen.
