Cheri @ Blog This Mom!

7 out of 10 spices want me to win.

Melanie

Oooh! A new author! I love finding new people to read. Thanks for the chance. If I win, maybe you, me and my new BFF Jamie can get together and you can give it to me in person!

Kalynne Pudner

Good lord; is Leif Garrett still alive?

I can't wait to read DRIVING SIDEWAYS, especially after having spent a few days this winter driving through Wyoming and Montana (blogged under titles with wording "Go West, Middle-Aged Woman" if you're interested)...not to mention having gone to college in Wisconsin (doesn't Leigh start out in Wisconsin)? So I can relate, don'cha know.

Chatty

oooh. I love books, and I love to enter contests, so count me in. I never win, but that never stops me ; )
A Leif Garrett meet and greet, eh? Now, if you had said David Cassidy or Micky Dolenz, I'd be camped out on your doorstep, but chacon a son gout...

Domestically Challenged

Oooooh, count me in - I'm a book magpie!

So you're the one who keeps snatching all the prizes from me....thanks a lot!

debbie

Have you seen a picture of Leif Garrett (yeah, I totally "cut and pasted" that...trust your spelling!!) lately?? Holy Mother of Good God Almighty and great balls o'fire...the man is positively bald!!!
For those of us 'around' his age...damn...he looks bad...we look awsome!!
Stick my name and number and what-not into the caldron for the book...I'm always in for some "chick-lit".
(and...just for the record...I took my Japanese mother-in-law on my HONEYMOON to Las Vegas AND San Fransisco....I should get a few extra points for THAT. Think about it, okay?? Yeah, I don't ever have to do anything else good for MY halos in heaven...I've earned mine already!!!)

Leif Garrett - haha I;d forgotten him.

I used to say "I never win anything" but I did recently so perhaps I will again!

I loved the photos in your last post by the way. He's such a cool dude your son.

kcinnova

This book sounds like it is right up my alley (or highway), so please put my name/number into that generator!

Leif Garrett?? I never really went for the blonds, so he didn't catch my interest, much. However, I did enjoy the look back! (I prefer to remember him with HAIR.)

dougalfish

My 'to read' pile is getting a little low so I would love a chance to enter :=0)

Jeanette from Texas

I need a good summer read. Take me away from the Halo noise please.

Jess

Hey, so happy you liked it!!

I just so happened to answer the PKD question here: http://www.viewfromthecloud.com/

Thanks Jen!

melissa

Dang, you are a lucky duck! That book sounds terrific--if I don't win it, I'll go get it at the book store:)

Suzanne

Sounds like a great summer read. I LOVE some funny. Leif Garrett....oh what ever happened to him? John Stamos seemed to push on, but poor ol' Leif, he was a casualty of the Teen/Tiger Beat era....

Katherine

Sounds like a great book. I'd love to win it.

The Mom Bomb

I was a Parker Stevenson girl myself, although apparently now he's also bald.

Janet

LOVE the flip flops, the old rutted road and "Hall and Oates’s Greatest Hits"? Gotta read this!

The Girl Next Door

OOOH count me in count me in (but I never win anything!) And if I don't win, I know what my next read will be!!

For me it was, is and always will be BRUCE (Springsteen, did you really have to ask?!)

JCK

Have you SEEN Leif Garrett these days!!? Meet and greet...sorry, I'll pass.

I'm completely IN for the book. Sounds really good.

And that cross-country trip with in-laws...GOD, you must have just been young and brave.

OK, LMAO - just saw Suburban Correspondent's comments on Leif Garrett!

Karen

I loved me some Leif Garrett!
Oh and I want that book, put me in the random number thingee-ma-bob please!

gary

oh yeah, Leif Garret--I think only girls liked him, just like David Cassady and Andy Gibb.

Sharon

Hadn't thought of Leif Garret in years! Please sign me up for the chance to win! Thanks.

Heather

I'm in. And if I win, I'll pay it forward as well.

Heidi

I remember liking Leif for a very short period a long long time ago.
Since I didn't win over at Suzy's, I will try here.
I wanted to visit anyways!

Megan

I put this book on my "to read" list.

MereCat

I already have the book so don't put me in the drawing, but I just wanted to say that your post makes me itchy to get started reading!

Just Jamie

I'm sucking up to you right now, can you feel the love? I've taken back my bedside table with a fresh stack of good-old fashioned BOOKS and I'm in love, again. This one would sure fit in nicely with friends on my nightstand....

;)

CC

Will Leif come over to my house if I win? No, really I would love a copy of the book. Sounds like a good read.

Minnesota Matron

Must check today's post to see if you've already picked that winner. . . I once had to review a friend's horrible book. I lied for her.

kate

Grandy

bichonpawz / Jeanne

Q

Leif Garrett is as handsome as ever. His mug shot just makes him look angry, and he was, at himself, for letting soooo many people down, including himself.

A receding hairline doesn't matter. He finally looks like the grown man he is. Still has the beautiful blue-greens, the lovely nose, the smile that melts, and the heart of gold.

I'd chat with the fellow about his upcoming projects at a meet and greet anytime, but he hasn't done those lately except for the Original Idols concerts he did with his friend, Ian Mitchell of the Bay City Rollers in 2007. With his mom's illness, he's pulled himself out. Still, he's been on several tv shows, looks just great to me!

Peace!Q
