Grasshopper Jungle!

I'll post a more complete blog next month, BUT I felt like this couldn't wait.

All you Grasshopper Jungle haters out there: I just finished reading it and -wonderfully weird as it was - I actually really enjoyed it!

More details to follow.

And So It Begins...

All the Smackdownians that could, met last night at A Blair McPherson School. They battled for their brackets (where necessary) and everyone left happy to have some books and frankly a little scared of Team Six! Those that couldn't make it have books making their way to their schools and we will all be busy reading in order to get our blog posts up by December 17th. Get ready to Smack lucky readers and participants and commenters because we have already got some diverse opinions; so much so that Grasshopper Jungle went unclaimed.  I can't wait to comment on that!

This year we bring the little blue bird - Twitter to the Nickel Edition with #msd2015. Hopefully the argument is so large it spills into the Twitterverse.

It's time!  Let's agree to disagree because that is always the best part of this whole adventure.
