  1. While I am #NotAtComicCon this week, I will be continuing to unpack at my new apartment. I’m hoping to get my bookshelves restocked without getting distracted by a paperback adventure.

  2. I’ll be at my daughter’s birthday party which we had to reschedule because of a family health issue. Thus, I had to cancel my trip to NY for ComicCon. #NotAtComicCon #NeedsAHug

  3. While I am #NotAtComicCon, I will be working at a local wine store, trying to spread my passion for wine to our customers, getting them to try something different than the usual they drink.

  4. Going to work is exciting every day. Thrilling. This prize could help dull that excitement and keep me from getting overwhelmed.

  5. While #NotAtComicCon, I will be having a game night with some friends on Friday night and going to the Titanic Artifact Exhibit at my local museum on Saturday morning. After that, I’m scheduled for a flea market outing and possibly seeing Pitch Perfect with some girlfriends on Sunday. (But I’d much rather be at Comic Con. Sigh.)

  6. I will be spending it celebrating my last year in the 20’s, doing some waterfowl hunting, reading old mans war, finishing the second draft of my short story for my creative writing class at the university, cuddling with my kids, watching some football, going to a college game and then reading Old Mans War!

  7. I’ll be at the fabulous Bristol Festival of Literature with WW2 buses, Pirates, crime in the caves and so much more!

  8. While #NotAtComicCon, I’m going to Tate Farms to let my 2yr old raid the pumpkin patch, going to a local fall festival, making a huge batch of homemade tomato sauce for freezing, and working on my novel. Just the typical weekend. :)

  9. Instead of going to NY Comic-Con this weekend, I will be only a short ferry ride away on Staten Island at Wagner College, performing in a musical called Putting it Together. It has music and lyrics by the famous theatre composer Stephen Sondheim, who rewrote lyrics and contributed material specifically for our production. I’m not one to brag, but I think that’s pretty cool! I’m pissed, though, that because of the show I’m #NotAtComicCon

  10. While #NotAtComicCon I will be working, spending quality time with the family and wishing I had bookshelves in my new home to unpack all my books to.

  11. While I’m #NotAtComicCon, I’ll be hiking through the Rocky Mountains with my dog. Because nothing prepares you for the zombie apocalypse like surviving in the harsh extremes of NATURE!

  12. I am #NotAtComicCon because I’m going to Austin City Limits Music Festival, where I will see about 40 different bands and eat delicious Austin trailer food.

  13. I’ll be going to see ARGO while #NotAtComicCon, partially because it has a comic book connection. :)

  14. While #NotAtComicCon, i shall be reading Iain (M.) Banks’ newest novels : Stonemouth and Hydrogen Sonata.

  15. Unfortunately I’m #NotAtComicCon because I will be busy writing a few reviews of OTHER Tor books. With that said, Wow – Tor continues to amaze me with their sweepstakes and their fan reader friendliness!

  16. While I’m @NotAtComicCon, I’ll be having dinner with a new friend and having brunch with an old friend (so, basically, I’m eating away my sorrows due to lack of con goodness). Everyone who’s there, including friends and co-workers, I seethe with jealousy, but hope you have a GREAT time.

  17. While I am #NotAtComicCon this week, I’ll be finishing up the second draft of this wip and hopefully catching up on the books in my TBR pile!

  18. I will not be at NYCC because I will be playing with my action figures I got at the Detroit CC

  19. While #NOTATCOMICCON this weekend we are on a field trip with 14 middle school kids at the coast.

  20. I will be continuing to recover from hospital stay and preparing for upcoming surgery. Wow that sounds as depressing as it feels. I hope everyone able to attend has a blast for the rest of us!

  21. While #NotAtComicCon, I will be surfing the web, devouring every shed of news and media coming out of Comic-Con!

  22. I am reading Bova, while talking to a Martian. After which, me and said Martian will travel to the recently discovered diamond planet to collect a sizable reward. Then we will make our way home to good ole’ Terra Nova, where I will crawl in bed and dream about Comic-Con..

  23. While #NotAtComicCon, I’ll be hard at work studying to get my MS in Publishing, and sneaking peeks online to see what’s going on across the continent.

  24. While #NotAtComicCon I will be working. … Pretty much. Yeah.

    I’ll make it to ComicCon someday. Hopefully.

  25. I will be a) grading my students’ tests from this week, b) working on my own graduate school classes, and c) taking care of my 15 month old son. Not quite the same amount of fun as going to ComicCon.

  26. Friday night I’ll be going to a haunted house. Then Sat and Sun I’ll be at the Zompire film festival. I also might venture out to a corn maze this weekend as well. It is the season for horror films, haunted houses and corn mazes.

  27. I will be enjoying a kid free weekend with my husband while kids will be in NYC (by ComicCon??)

  28. While I’m not at ComicCon, I’ll be taking advantage of the remaining days of warm weather. Whether that means outdoors recreation or yardwork I’m not sure of yet…

  29. Only thing different happening this week than others is I’m catching up on Stargate — I didn’t actually watch when it was on air (only so much time), and now watching SG1+Atlantas. Expect to finish ST1 season 10 and Atlantis season 2 some time this weekend.

    Hope to catch the next Ottawa Comiccon… Didn’t hear about last May’s event until it was too late to organize attending.

  30. While #NotAtComicCon I will be spending the weekend at a Bed & Breakfast in TN with my wife and infant son. Although it’s not ComicCon, I can’t think of a better alternative than a weekend retreat with the two loves of my life.

    …Yes I can. The same weekend retreat with a grab bag full of books to share with my wife (who also has a love for reading). 😉

  31. While #NotAtComicCon I will be taking my son to pick up the brand new car I ordered for him. Thank you so much!

  32. I will be teaching 6th graders ancient history. Hoping I can interest then in reading anything since I’m #NotAtComicCon.

  33. I’m working, egad! #NotAtComicCon It’s the first thing I’ve had to miss in nearly 10 years of this… Send supplies before I let my chair float away.

  34. While #NotAtComicCon I’ll be grousing to my friends as to why we never go to a comicCon as well as trying to convince undergrads that they are not too old and/or sophisticated to read YA

  35. I’ll be watching the Endeavor go through Southern California while I’m #NotAtComicCon.

  36. Taking care of our 4 month old son so his mom can have a spa day with her friends. But between spending time with my boy or going to NYCC. I’ll pick my boy any day.

  45. While I am not at NYCC this year, I will be mowing my yard for the last time this year, watching my four boys and reading three books. It would help if I could juggle. Thank you very much for the giveaway opportunity! I’d love to read and review these books.

  46. WOW! Epic giveaway. :) I guess the best thing I will be doing while #NotAtComicCon is starting a new job with a non-profit that has an evidenced-based program to keep kids in school! Win!

Good clean fun ‘eh?
