Today’s the day, people! Figment and readergirlz have partnered to promote the 2010 Rock the Drop celebration in honor of YALSA’s Support Teen Lit Day. Download a bookplate, slip it into a beloved YA novel, and “drop” that book for an unsuspecting reader to find! Snap a photo of your “drop” and send it to readergirlz or figment to be featured on the blog, and you’re entered to win a set of Ruby Oliver books by E. Lockhart.

What are you waiting for? Go rock the drop!

See what I did there?

Yeah, at the risk of being a broken record, this week is all about Rock the Drop.
Now that ALA’s list of most frequently-banned books has been released, why not consider dropping a BANNED book tomorrow? Way to make two times the statement about teen lit, and literacy!

Also, note that the winner of “most creative ‘drop'” will receive a complete set of Ruby Oliver books by E. Lockhart, the most recent of which, Real Live Boyfriends, was well worth the– ahem — wait.

I hope you’re as excited about Rock the Drop as I am! In the meantime, here’s some footage of myself and Ms. Jones being VERY stealth as we pulled off last year’s Drop:

Figment.com is running info about Rock the Drop all week long! Come Rock the Drop with us, and help spread the word!

Thanks mucho to rgz Miami HOST Crissa Chappell (and her niece, Corie, a very good sport!) for the excellent video.

I know, I know – you miss your Monday Muse, but hopefully this info will be perfectly inspiring!

Speaking of reading and loving (and loving reading!), I have to wax rhapsodic about this year’s readergirlz/figment Rock the Drop initiative, created to celebrate Support Teen Lit Day.

On April 14, (that’s Thursday, people!) download a bookplate from readergirlz or figment, paste it into a book for donation, and drop your copy someplace public for some lucky reader to find. Fun, right? Then send a photo in to one of the blogs (or both! But we’ll be cross-posting) to show us how you rocked the drop!

Right now I’m reading Sean Olin’s Brother/Sister. It’s great: fast-paced and grabby. It would make for a good “drop.”

Just sayin’.
