Are you ready for BOOKER-PALOOZA 2012?

From Urban Dictionary, a definition of palooza:
The art of throwing a very drunken extravagant party with a plethora of friends. Whoever is throwing the palooza usually adds their name as a prefix to the word. Paloozas are usually held on Wednesday.
Okay, that's a bit of an exaggeration. It captures the celebratory atmosphere I want at Booker-Palooza. But there won't be any drinking. (Well, a beer or two for me, maybe, and I can't stop you if you want to tip one back. But no drunkenness.)

The "Wednesday" part of the definition is right. But in the case of Booker-Palooza, it's incomplete. Because Booker-Palooza will also be on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday of next week.

What's it about?


Five straight days of giveaways.

Here's the deal:

•   The first giveaway post will go up Sunday night at a minute past midnight — in other words, at 12:01 a.m. (PST) on Monday, September 3.

•   Every 24 hours, a new giveaway post will go up, the last one going up at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, September 7.

•   Each giveaway will be open to entries for exactly 24 hours from the time the post goes up.

•   Winners will be selected at random using the random number generator at random.org and will be announced daily.
So, you're dying to know what I'm giving away, right?

I'm not telling, except in the posts themselves.

So, set those repeating alarms on your smart phones to remind you to check back every day next Monday through Friday, so you don't miss out on something good!
