WHAT'S IN A NAME? -- A CONTEST



Okay, now what's up with the Minnie Mouse image?  Well, she looks pretty cheerful and I needed that image to help me get into the morning.

For whatever reason, I was up at 4:15 today, and it wasn't because I went to bed too early, either.

I'd finished reading my final book for the week, so I got up to post my review.


As I considered the books I'll be reading this next week, I felt that "still new" excitement that one of them will be a book I ordered for my KindleThe Girl in the Green Raincoat, by Laura Lippman, has been on my wish list.

Speaking of my Kindle...Sheila, over at Book Journey, has named her Nook (Snookie), and I've been delving into that so-called creative part of me to come up with a name for my Kindle.  Any ideas?

Nothing seems to leap into my mind, like titles or names usually do.  Maybe I've overused my stash of names for characters in my WIP.  Would one of those names work?



If I stare at it long enough, maybe something will come to me....hmm, not working.

I thought that if I hosted a contest, perhaps someone would come up with a name FOR me.  The prize would be one of my review books...I posted the titles of those books below and will give the winner his/her choice...What do you think?

Game on, bloggers!  Let me know what you think my Kindle should be named, and if I go with your selection, you'll win a book!  And you can choose from the list!

Here are some books up for grabs:

Miss Hildreth Wore Brown - Olivia deBelle Byrd
Reading Women - Stephanie Staal
My Formerly Hot Life - Stephanie Dolgoff
Mary Ann in Autumn - Armistead Maupin

  1. I have had my Kindle for a year and still haven't named it, can't decide if I want it to be a girl or a boy, lol

    For you my vote is Sunshine. With all the rainy days you appreciate and love when the sun comes out, so Sunshine :-)

  3. Well, this may be a bit out there, but go with me on this... it's a Kindle, and the word "kindle" makes me think of a fire, so I wanted to say fire, but that sounds like a steamy romance novel name, or even a bad soap opera name, so I will stay away from just "fire". My suggestion is "Firefly" - simply because most people get extremely excited when it's firefly season, and it's fun and exciting to catch fireflies, just as it's fun and exciting to read new books. So, each new book is like a new "firefly", hence naming your Kindle "firefly"!

    Whew! Kudos to you if you stuck with me until now! Happy Reading! :D

  4. Yes, Kindle does connote lighting a fire, so Firefly makes perfect sense! Thanks for participating, and I'll keep you posted.

    What's your e-mail address?

  5. You could name it Philologie, in the sense of "love of literature. Call it Phil for short?

  6. Hmm, that's fascinating, Julie...Good thing you mentioned "Phil" for short! LOL

    Thanks for stopping by and participating.
