More awesomeness for teens, and for YA writers.

For those who haven't heard: the folks over at Publishers Lunch reported (sometime last week; I'm a bit behind on my email) that Simon & Schuster has developed a teen social networking site, called Pulse It, for teens ages 14 to 18 (not fair!!).

The awesome factor(s)? Site members get to read one book online for free per month, and the books will be a combo of new releases and those that are soon to be published. AND you get points for things like reviews (I'm not sure what you do with these points, but it still sounds really cool). AND you can win free books!!

I am SO jealous to be a twenty-something right now. Maybe I can sneak in the teens only door and pretend to be an 18 and a half-ish year old when I get caught? I'll even paint a little "No Drinking Under 21" stamp on my hands.

Yeah. Seeing as how I hardly get carded for a margarita anymore, I don't think so. But here's to wishful thinking ...

I turn nineteen in a month. Now that just makes me sad. Psh, I could definitely still pass for eighteen. I could probably pass for twelve if I tried really hard. It's the magic of being Asian.

I'm sadly WAY past the 18 year old mark. Don't they realize that 20-somethings are reading more YA than YA's?
