Become a Literary Archaeologist For A Day!
I have been waiting for this for some time now and it has finally happened. Today on Michelle Moran's Site she posted Literary Clues that go with a specific bookstore that is participating. If you can figure out the clue it leads you to a book in the store. If you find the right book you find a ribbon that say "Digging for Cleopatra's Daughter You've Won". After you take the ribbon the the cashier then you get a "goodies" bag. In the goodies is A signed copy of Cleopatra's Daughter, An authentic Roman artifact (each one is unique), Cleopatra earrings, and other Cleopatra goodies!
There is still many locations across the nation that now one has found yet. Be sure to check out Michelle's site for the clue.
I drove an hour and a half to the bookstore closest to me, which was at the beach. Dragging the kids the whole way. The funny part is when I got there they had been only open for less than an hour and I could not find the book. I told the nice lady "you probably know why I am here" and I handed her the note with the book information on it. She could not find it. So we went to the cash register and she was going to search for it when I noticed right next to the computer was the book with the ribbon barely hanging out. I squealed "That is it, right there"! They were so nice at the Cannon Beach Book Company, I even took a picture for you all. Thank You Michelle for doing such a fun promotion, by far one of the coolest Treasure Hunts Ever! I am wearing the Cleopatra earrings right now.
