What the Librarian Won: The Entries!

Little did I know that when I posted a contest celebrating Jennifer Lohmann’s win as Librarian of the Year from RWA, I’d set off a Photoshopping mania among librarians. Behold the entries for our contest. Jennifer and I will be picking the winner, but we are not above being swayed by your comments – so let us know which one you like the best! The winner will receive a $50 gift certificate to the bookstore of her choice AND will direct a $50 contribution to the library or Friends of the Library organization of her choice, plus a big ol’ box of assorted romance novels from Jennifer from the RWA National conference in Nashville. Books and book money and cold hard charitable donation cash are on the line.

So which book rocks your stacks?

    Awesome!  Obviously mine is the best, *grin*, but the one that had me laughing out loud is the last one.  The hair!  And the horse!  Fabulous.

    Oh, man. Half Human, Half Goat, All Man.
    That has to take the prize, surely? Might not be the best bit of photoshopping but massively gave me the biggest giggles.

    BWAHAHAHA! I have to agree that the last one, with the hair and the horses would be my pick. But the “Half Human, Half Goat, All Man” made me snort my coffee.

    The last one with the hair blowing in opposite directions and the horse running out of the library for no apparently reason—definitely!  I snort every time I see it!

    As much as I want my library to win the cash, ain’t no denying the Power of Lurrrve™ emanating from that last one.

    Oh, man.  Way to make me snort chai out my nose with the Goat Man cover.  They’re all great, though—I can’t choose!

    “Library science… it’s not just for wussies”

    Totally snorted coffee over that one!

    Definitely the last one!  It doesn’t get better than windblown Fabio hair!!

    The last two had me laughing so hard I’m crying!

  11. 11

    How bad is it that I had to go back and look for the horse after reading the comments???  Yikes. My eyes have clearly become immune to insert-random-horse-here cover art!

    These ALL crack me up!  For me, the first one gets the best cover quote “Their love was overdue… and the fine was passion!”  But the last two win it overall for me!

    This are all so great!  I need to share them with the entire library foundation board at our next meeting.

    Oh, and my favorite was “020 is the Science of Love” for the sheer library geekiness of it.

    Secret Affair in the Stacks = Winner!!!!

    Also receives the Horse and Hair Photoshop trophy

    Runners up (for me):
    Long Overdue = Clever Title Award
    The Librarian’s Trophy = Most Hilurbing (Hilarious + Disturbing)

    The Librarian’s Trophy

    .  Not only is it funny, but also fills a gap in the goat porn romance genre.

    All I can say is… Bitchery’s got talent!

    They’re all great, but my favorites are Between the Stacks and Secret Affair in the Stacks.  :)

    Since I have a cover in the competition, I’ll abstain from voting. I must say though, that these are truly humptastic! Lots of great covers to choose from. Thanks for the fun!

    Danielle says:

    Gotta be the first one! I love the details (wrinkles on the cover! the sticker on the spine!), the layout’s great, and the tagline’s brilliant.

    I love the reviews on the second one, too. And the random horse in the last one!

    OMG – “Long Overdue” SO wins.  Awesome.

    I’m between Long Overdue( Can he renew their love??) and the last one with the blowing hair and totally extraneous horse.  As one of Jenn’s co-workers, I was particularly interested in this one. Her husband sure is a good sport!

    Castiron says:

    I have to cast my official vote for LONG OVERDUE because of awesome punnage, but must also give some unofficial love to the last cover because of the hair, and to “Library science: it’s not for wussies”.

    For realism I vote for Caught in the Stacks
    For WTF pile-on of awesome cliche it’s got to be Secret Affair In The Stacks
    You girls are good.

    Jaci Burton says:

    These are all beyond awesome! The bitchery is so wicked talented. And yay for librarians!

    LONG OVERDUE has my vote.

    Well done, everyone!

  28. 28

    How to choose?  It’s not easy. But I choose Between the Stacks.

    I’ve got to go with Stacks of Love because I can’t resist a Dewey joke.
