My Report Card

I admit it--I was a grade junkie in school.

Lisa Simpson:
Look at me! Grade me! Evaluate and rank me! I'm good, good, good and oh so smart! [drops to her knees] Grade meeeeee!!

(I can't believe this clip isn't on YouTube. The quote's from Classic TV Quotes).


So the first reviews of Minder have been making me bliss! Check 'em out:

OK, I know I already read the book, but who could resist a chance at a Minder shirt. Only 10 days left!

I'm glad you're getting such good reviews.

I was interested in the one that said that the teens were thinking about sex all the time. Thinking back to my long ago teenage years, that sounds about right!

Disgruntled Bear said...

Thanks for the wonderful post Elie!

Hi Fairyhedgehog! As for Minder's sex-to-other-thought ratio--if anything, I toned it down! BTW, I'm still working on getting Amazon UK to carry Minder. I'll let you know when we get everything set. If they haven't fixed it by the end of the week, we'll add pounds and euro links to Ganzfield and ship directly to individuals in Europe from the UK-based printer.

I tried to leave you a review at Amazon.ca but they are not carrying Minder :(

Hi Gail,
I've been in touch with Amazon CA, and we're trying to fix it. I've had the same delay with Amazon UK, as well. The "I" in ISBN stands for "INTERNATIONAL," but it's not working out that way so far. Thanks for trying, though!

The contest is closed, and the winner is...Elie! I'll get that shirt in the mail today.

I'm seriously getting torked off at Google Reader. I was caught up on my blog reading yesterday but this is the THIRD post that didn't show up until this morning. (Great pulling of hair and gnashing of teeth)

All that and I was just gonna say I JUST saw that episode of the Simpsons the other day!

Hi Vicki,

Make sure you stop by next week for the Virtual Launch party! I still have signed copies, shirts, and cookies! Mmm...cookies.
