I'm sure most of ya'll are aware of Do the Write Thing for Nashville, supporting The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. The items up for bid have been going for big bucks, but it's well worth it if you have the money.
Also, we're in the middle of Neurofibromatosis Awareness Month. Thus, Doodle Day! You can bid on celebrity doodles, some of which are absolute bargains. Book related ones include Liz Tigelaar, author of PRETTY TOUGH, and Jodi Picoult, author of a wide range of books that made you cry.
So, give and get! The great thing about charitable auctions is you can have your cake and eat it too.
