a fun little contest

What fun! You really need to check out the haiku book review contest over at Fyrefly's Book Blog. Even if you don't feel like entering (which, of course, is pure craziness since she's giving away a $20 Amazon gift certificate!), you should still go read all the fun entries!

So, how do you enter? You just write a haiku style (5 syllable/7 syllable/5 syllable) book review. Then leave it in the comments on her post. She has several of her own posted. But never fear, you don't have to be as talented as she is in writing them, because the winner will be randomly drawn. Good news for people like me!

So, my entry:

whack-job scientist
creeped me out with his madness
still, I loved the book

(The Island of Dr. Moreau, by H.G. Wells)

Hehe! I love your haiku! I've been wanting to read Dr. Moreau for awhile now. Wells is awesome. You should check out The Time Machine...it's my favorite!
