Giveaway Teaser 1: Slimed!

Christmas is almost here and I'm excited. Not just to spend it with my loved ones but also to give gifts. It's a fantastic feeling that I feel, not just around Christmas, but all year round. I've always been taught that if you appreciate someone enough, spoil them with gifts, be it physical or sentimental. And this has been a challenging year for me in keeping up with this blog, but people have been supporting me and it's been very appreciated. So, that said, I'm planning to do a giveaway at the end of this month. You can expect the full giveaway lot to be revealed a little after Christmas but I wanted to post this now(mainly because I'm super excited and feeling impatient). The first prize to be thrown into the mix will be a copy of Slimed! An Oral History of Nickelodeon's Golden Age!

I am a huge fan of behind the scenes books. One of the best books I've read is "Live From New York" which covers Saturday Night Live's extensive history which includes interviews with almost every cast member from it's inception(save for Eddie Murphy, of course) and is a tremendous read with amazing stories that have to be read to be believed. Now I want you to imagine that kind of book featuring almost every cast member of every Nickelodeon show from it's debut to the last 10 or so years. You have Slimed! by Matthew Klickstein. This book is an amazing read and may be in contention with Live from New York as most comprehensive and fascinating book when it comes to behind the scenes stories. Never before seen photos, stories of And with a foreword by everyone's favorite host, Marc Summers, you know it's gonna be a must-read.

If you, like me, grew up glued to the TV watching Hey Dude, Are You Afraid of the Dark, Ren and Stimpy, Pete and Pete and fell in love with Clarissa Darling, then this is a must own book. And thanks to Penguin Publishing and author Matthew Klickstein, I'll be throwing this in a very fun lot of goodies at the end of this month! You can find out more about this Slimed! at their official site and it's official Facebook page as well!

More announcements to follow. But like I said. I love giving gifts and this is one gift I'm super stoked about giving away!
