I had to disqualify a lot of contestants for not following the rules, but we have some amazing entries and I can't wait to see who wins!!!



Good luck contestants, and remember to invite all your friends to vote!


I've also added two just-for-fun sub contests:

best cat submission:

best dog submission:

The mascot will likely be incorporated into a t-shirt. The mascot will not be used in the header, and there are no planned mascot placements elsewhere on the site.

Mary Bellus Competition?


message 2: by Nikki (new)

Nikki Considering this is a book-oriented site, shouldn't spelling be of utmost importance?

Mandee We're only human. Big whoop.

You knew what he meant so I guess that's all that really matters.

lol... I'd have to be so OCD that I double checked every single thing I type on here. I already spend far too much time here as it is. :-)

Nanea wait.... what did he spell wrong??
I'm a terrible speller, so I'm with Mandee and a lot of others, and that's probably why I over looked it...

Oh well, not important! :)

Laura The two "for fun" links are messed up; cat contest link doesn't work & dog contest links goes to cat contest.


message 12: by Margarida (new)

YOU just caused me to get coffee all over my keyboard. I was expecting maybe a nasty, mind-you-own-business-strange-chick type response - not one that makes me laugh so hard so early. That was awesome. :)

Athena Love the pics!


message 22: by Mr.B (new)

Mr.B The book-thingy gets my vote. What do dogs and cats have to do with reading?


message 23: by Gertie (new)

Gertie Unfortunately the hedgehog one (I have an entry of my own in too but I still think the hedgehog is really cute) uses clipart too. The bumblebee obviously is winning anyway, so I guess no one will have to worry about the rules. Although I bet the 4th place entrant will be a little disappointed. :-(

Fun idea for users to participate though!

Alina Vote for me! I made Mr. Books, I think he is in 6th place. I made him myself, He is not clipart!!! VOTE FOR MR.BOOKS!!!
