1. For the past week or so, people have been doing an ice bucket challenge, where you must pour ice water over your head, or pay $100 to a charity. Maybe it's just me, but the premise of "do something unpleasant to avoid charitable donations" doesn't make a lot of sense.
Anyway, I don't respond well to peer pressure, so I won't be doing it.
2. I did a book giveaway this weekend, but none of the five winners have gotten back to me. Oh, well. Guess I'll be stuck with the books now.
3. I finished reading the 39 Clues: Cahills VS Vespers series, and I give it my official thumbs-up. I was excited to hear David Baldacci wrote the final book in the series. His writing style took about 40 pages to get used to, because it doesn't really fit with the other books. But since he's great at writing thrillers, the book was quite excellent once it got going.
