Nooooo!

I just got an email today that Simon and Schuster's teen review program, Pulse IT, is caput. Pulse IT was one the better review programs I participate in: they send a book every month, usually one that's pretty good and all you have to do is fill out a survey form. It was easy and hey, I was getting books to read and review. So I'm kind of upset. The email made a point of saying that there would still be free content, meaning book reviews, author interviews, etc. But I don't care about the other stuff, I just want the books (what can I say? I'm broke.) I guess it's no surprise, what with the economy being so bad. Grrr. It needs to get better.

I agree! The death of Pulse It is a tragic moment. I don't think the "free stuff" sounds very exciting... it's probably going to be things like quizzes on "which book character are you?" or E books (ewww!).

I'm definitely having a mini funeral in my back yard. I'll bury one of the cards they send with the books next to my dead goldfish, sushi.

Ohh, that is sad! I never got to join the pulse it board, as it was always full, but I always wished to!

Oh. Well, then . . . maybe Pulse It will start up again once the economy is better? All we can do is hope and wait . . . :)

Man, that sucks. I couldn't join because I have a PO box, but it was still cool.
