A Book For You

From the Afterword:
goodnightbush.jpg In 1946, George W. Bush was born; one year later, "Goodnight Moon" was first published. The toddler classic and the future president have been inseparable ever since. Go to the White House website, and you'll find that Laura Bush placed "Goodnight Moon" first on her list of books to read to and with young children. Her brother-in-law, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, has called "Goodnight Moon" one of his favorite books from childhood. During President Bush's first term, the traditional Christmas gingerbread White House included a room made to look precisely like the one in "Goodnight Moon." Bush himself, while campaigning, referred to "Goodnight Moon" as one of his childhood favorites (along with a Carle's "The Very Hungry Caterpillar", which was not actually published until one year after Bush graduated college; the president's infancy was clearly an extended one).
The publisher has provided several copies of an unauthorized Parody of the book titled "Goodnight Bush" by Erich Origen & Gan Golan. I'm giving them away. You know the drill. And the winners are: blinky, dimossi, Susan, and mish.

I'll take all requests for the book left in the comments during the next 24 hours, or so, and then use a random number generator to determine the winners. I'll then ship the book at my expense to the winners. The offer is limited to residents of the U.S. and Canada. My apologies to my good friends in other countries but the cost of shipments to other destinations is simply too high.

Note:The offer is open only to registered comments others will be ignored. Please make it clear if you want to be considered for the book or are just commenting.



Count me in! I would love to read it. Thanks!

Awesome! Sign me up!

I'd like to be considered!

My hat's in too Norm.

BTW check out this review from amazon LOL. I would have thought he was being sarcastic, but the dude gave the book a one star rating.

By Will Stock (Spain) - See all my reviews First, it's plain p**spoor taste to base a parody on a lovely classic like Goodnight Moon. Is nothing sacred? Must everything be politicized? I'll be as pleased as anyone to see Bush leave, but that's not the point. Leave classic books alone! Also, I've seen some online adverts for the book, and they are the lowest kind of tacky, flashing ads that only porn purveyors use. Stop it! Stop it! Go away!

I'm in for the book too. It looks like fun!

I am in; this book sounds sweet. I have only observed this great concept of giving books away, but Goodnight Bush actually got me to put my name in the hat.

Please put my name in the hat.

We've been reading Goodnight Moon to our children so I'm well familiar with the original. Count me in!

Well, as the father of three young kids I am DELIGHTED to see this title...looks fantastic! A surefire classic.

Count me in!

Please enter me in the randomized drawing. Thanks.

Dear Norm,

I would love to be considered for the Nobel Prize in Economics.

And the book, too.

Pick me, o random number generator!

And, come January, it will be 'Goodnight Maroon' (with a tip of the carrot to Bugs Bunny)!

i would like a shot at it. Sounds entertaining

Pick me! Not those other guys...

I'd like in please :)

Please sign me up! Thanks, Norm. :)

I am interested in the book. Thanks.

Oh please consider me for this book! My it's a classic and I'd love to have it to read the new version to my grandchildren, just as I did with the original to my children.

Count me in please. Thank you.

Hey you!! Trying to get counted twice? ;-)

Please count me in, if it's not too late, Norm. (scratch, claw, fight, jostle, fight)

Yes please. Thanks.

Yes, I'd like to be considered for a book! Thanks.

I would LOVE this book!

I'm up to looking at what looks like a good read.

Me, too-- if it's not too late.

Ahh count me in, I'd love a copy!

oh yes please count me in! before i could read i apparently would open the book up to the first page and recite the book from memory. i'm glad that i share this childhood memory with george. also, as a 3 year old i gave up broccoli when i heard george senior say on the news that he disliked the vegetable as well.

yes, I have read that book to my daughter many, many times. thanks for the opportunity....alan

Toss me in with the other numbers, please
