Today is December 1st, and the holidays are just over there on the horizon. I know it's tough to get into the spirit of things, especially if you're surrounded by Scrooges and Grinches. I've run into more than my share lately, and if you don't do something about it they infect you with their bad moods and you end up turning into one.
I think we need to summon the Publishing Fairy, sprinkle some magic blog dust around and see if we can't get three wishes granted -- that should spread a little goodwill (and if that doesn't work, we can always summon the Publishing Ogres, Remainder and Oop, to go after the grumblers and complainers.)
So: in comments to this post, tell us something that you're doing to get into the holiday spirit (or if the spirit is eluding you so far, just toss your name in the hat) by midnight EST on Wednesday, December 3, 2008. I'll pick three names at random from everyone who participates and grant each of the winners a BookWish*. This giveaway is open to everyone on the planet, even if you've won something here at PBW in the past.
*A BookWish is any book of your choice that is available to order from an online bookseller, with a maximum cost of $30.00 U.S. (I'll throw in whatever shipping costs are involved.)
