This is week #4. Things are going well but we want to grow so do join us for this week's assignment. May is designated Asian Heritage Month. For this post I opted to answer:
5) Don't know much about Asian writers? Explore and then report on what you discovered.
Thanks to Aerin at In Search of Giants, I was introduced to Ellen Oh. Aerin posted a link to Ellen's current giveaway of Silver Phoenix by Cindy Pon for Little Lov'n Monday. Because of Ellen's comments, I'm taking a serious look at Ms. Pon's book and I'm thrilled to learn about Ellen's book, Seven Kingdoms. See there really is a method to my madness.

Because I'm stoked about connecting with Ellen, leave a comment on this post and I'll do a drawing for any book from our Prize Bucket at Color Online. And by the way, you still have time to answer any unanswered quiz at Color Online. There are more than 50 books in the Bucket so check out the quiz.If you don't know about Ellen, get over there. Deadline for this special C.O.R.A drawing is May 4th.
