Have you ever read Henty? You could win a five hundred dol.

Srry, I think I should have said this for my other one.

"Books? You want books?! Ha! We've got books on hairy otters, on onions and on mars! All the fungus you could care for, plus, three triple zillion stars. We've got books on flossing teeth, plus three books on tossing sheep. If we spent our lives just counting books, we'd never get to sleep!" -Leopold the Librarian ("The Great Wishy Woz, Part 2")

Recently I've been reading portions of books written by G.A. Henty, because I'm doing this essay. You can find out about it right here! You can win up to $500's of gift certifacites for winning first place, $250 for second and $100 for winning third, so if you've ever read Henty you might consider doing this, you can also pick them up at the library, but you have to turn your essay of about 1500 words in by November 30.
P.S. you can also find some of G.A. Henty's books in online versions so if you're interested I know there is at least 2 free online books written by him, he's written about 99 books!

P.S.S. You also have to have read at least 5 Henty books to compete. Just letting everyone know.

So how do I enter? Is their a website or something? \:D/
What is this essay about?

You can find out about it here! I wrote about 500 words yesterday so don't feel discouraged if you're just starting. You might want to see what other people wrote last year in this part of the website. right here. Just to see what they are kind of looking for. The topic this year is how henty brings out how men and women are in their proper roles.

P.S. Cowboy I guess I was thinking how they've been publishing the books now a days. They put about 40 of his books into 2 volumes.
