And to commemorate this special day, I'll be giving away a hardcover copy of SOPHIE METROPOLIS by Tori Carrington to the person who can answer this question correctly:

Somewhere in the world, one of these is opened every 4 seconds. What is it?

In case of multiple correct answers, a winner will be drawn randomly from all correct entries. Contest ends at 11:59 P.M. Central Standard Time, Friday, August 18, 2006.

Email your answer to

Winner will be announced Monday afternoon, August 21, 2006

P.S. I know that the 15000th hit was from Ontario, Mississauga, Canada, uses Windows XP and the Firefox browser and logged onto the blog at 7:10:51 PM Central time. If you think you're that person, email me and if your IP number matches the IP in my tracking software, you'll receive an autographed copy of HELL ON WHEELS by Karen Kelley.

Okay, very cool on the 15K!

But PM, that question is hard--I even tried to google it. Can you give us a hint?

And, that person who was hit 15K has think we're stalkers... (We know where you live, what system you run... shiver...)

A hint?

Uhm... it starts with a letter in the second half of the alphabet.

Problem Child said...

I know the answer...

And I am bribable folks (at least for other people's contests ;-p)

Let me repeat, "This is why we call her the Problem Child."

Keep those cards and letters coming in, folks. And whoever you are in Canada, I'm still waiting to hear from you!
