Pitch Black – Books with Bite via kwout

This is just the coolest Teen Read Week website EVER!!!!! HarperTeen, book publishers extraordinaire have created PitchBlack, which helps you select your favorite vampire books at the opening of a crypt door! Upon entering the site, you choose from one of three crypt doors. Just ask yourself: Are you a lover, a fighter, or a biter? So you think you’re a lover? The site recommends the Vampire Kisses series by Ellen Schreiber. No, maybe you’re a fighter. Then you need to try the Evernight series by Claudia Gray. Or wait, maybe you’re a biter? Then check out the Vamps series by Nancy A. Collins. There’s also a quiz to help you decide which type of vamp you are. You can even pimp your coffin, because, as the website tell us, “just because you’re undead does not mean you have to be uncool!” There’s a list of Pitch Black Books with Bite tour events and even a sweepstakes. One grand prize winner will receive an iPod touch and a Pitch Black ten-book prize pack. Ten runners-up will receive the Pitch Black ten-book prize pack. Visit the website for rules and to enter the contest. Here’s a list of the books you can win:
Evernight by Claudia Gray
Vampire Kisses 5: The Coffin Club by Ellen Schreiber
Vamps by Nancy A. Collins
Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr
Ink Exchange by Melissa Marr
The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong
The Vampire Diaries by L. J. Smith
Mediator: The Twilight by Meg Cabot
Gone by Michael Grant

How About a Glog with Bite!

Posted by blatantbibliophiles on October 13, 2008

Here is a link to a really cool glog someone has done for Teen Read Week! This is what I am looking for in your glogs that you do about books. Except, yes, there is some copyright violation going on here. Otherwise, it is great! Be sure to tell your friends to stop by the media center this week to celebrate Teen Read Week. We will be celebrating Books with Bite with a display of vampire books and different snacks all week. Today we have cookies, so stop by the media center for a treat!
