Please add your email address to your comment so that we may contact you if you win. Your email will be removed by the blog moderator before posting. Full names are appreciated but not required, as long as we have a valid email address.

CONGRATULATIONS to sociologyallstar for posting the "best outside blog post" for the April 25 post on Slaughterhouse-Five. Please check out the winning post in that specific board.

The students of ENGL 223 picked the top three outside posts for the semester. First place went to sociologyallstar, second place to WPG for the post on "Howl," and third place went to John Boyken for his post on "Brokeback Mountain."

THANK YOU to all readers and bloggers for helping make the blog a success. We appreciate your thoughts and comments!
