Treat yourself to a good book, then watch the movie version.

Once you’ve done that, enter into the drawing.

I want you to be the next Roger & Ebert or Perez Hilton and critic which you liked best.  Mark if you liked the book or movie better and a short sentence why.  You can enter more than one book/movie (and yes it may be something from the past, you just have to have read & seen both). Ages 11-18.  The drawing will be April 30th.

We will give away five $10 Gift Certificates to

Dairy Queen. 

So Treat yourself to a good, book then go get a treat!
