My reading list grows exponentially. Everytime I read a book, it'll mention three other books I feel I have to read. It's like a particularly relentless series of pop-up ads.

YAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!

So, I have to scream for a minute!!!!!! I made it to the top 1,000 for the Amazon's Breakthrough Novel Award! They cut 4,000 entries to get to this first round...

The crazy thing is that I totally forgot about the contest. Totally! I've been so wrapped up in work and a bazillion other things that I didn't even ONCE think about it today, or the past few days to be honest.

And then ChristaCarol emailed me saying, "Congrats," and I was like, "What, Huh??" and then I was like WWWWHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOO HHHOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Okay, I'm gonna stop now. Because this post makes no sense! Did anyone else make it!! Let's celebrate together!!

Next round will announce the top 250 on March 23rd. I can only hope to forget about it and be surprised again that day!! :))
