Okay, this is not the official picture:



I haven't read the book yet, and I have to get husband and camera and me and the book together in the next couple of days, but I wanted to get the blog contest started!

This is not my typical blog contest in which you get to keep the book. Instead, you get to participate in the road trip for Mary Pearson's ARC of
The Miles Between, on its way from Mary to her editor in NYC. The official rules are posted here, at Mary's blog. The basics, though, are that you take a picture of the book somewhere in your hometown and post that on your blog, then pass the book on to another lucky "traveler."

It's summer, and things are complicated enough, so I'm keeping this contest simple. Just leave a comment, and you're entered. (If you don't have a LiveJournal ID, do leave some kind of name/nickname for me to draw out of the hat!) I'm going to run this contest until Friday only, so drop your name in now! And be sure to stop back in on Friday to see if you win.

Thanks to HipWriterMama for making me a stop on the road trip. And good luck to everybody!

I would love to have a chance to read this ARC. I think it's such a great idea to send the book around the country on it's own road trip. Please add my name to the hat :)

I think it was a brilliant idea, too. And you're in!

Yours, too! Son is feeling the pressure--I always make him draw the winner. :)

Love simple rules, and I've loved Mary's earlier books. So, yes, I think that arc needs to come to western Mass!

I think it should come out there, too! I got it from the east coast, and I love the feeling that it's zig-zagging back & forth across the country!

Please enter me for the book road trip! I think I would put it in an Adirondack chair next to Lake Champlain. :)

Perhaps you should have a Becky Road Trip contest! It is worth the trip, I assure you.

Oh, wouldn't that be fun!

I love Mary's idea so much--trying to figure out if there's any way to do something/anything like this with my crit book when it comes out.

Jenn, is that Philadelphia? (No, I didn't know that, had to ask husband!). Would you take a picture with the book & the liberty bell?
