20 Things in 20 Days Scavenger Hunt

Every day for 20 days, we’ll post a clue or bonus activity somewhere in the TBS Word Ninja blogosphere giving you a chance to answer questions or do activities for points. The more clues you complete, the more points you earn!

At the end of the hunt, the participant with the most points wins the grand prize, featuring… you guessed it… 20 THINGS including 14 summer surprises and signed editions of these 2009 debuts: Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler, Fairy Tale by Cyn Balog, Breathing by Cheryl Renee Herbsman, Prada & Prejudice by Mandy Hubbard, Models Don’t Eat Chocolate Cookies by Erin Dionne, and The Great Call of China by Cynthea Liu!
Look for the 20 Things in 20 Days icon on various ninja blogs (I'll give you a hint-mine is one of them!) Sarah Ockler is awesome, super sweet and wrote her first book about E.T. Everyone should participate to make Sarah smile! The 20 days starts tomorrow (June 11) so be on the lookout for clues!
