It's a Pajama Party at the book clubs! If you haven't joined in the fun, do it today. If you need inspiration, read the pajama remembrances that other book club readers have submitted--including some photos--and a call for pajama help from book club reader, Dennis Matejka. Dennis misses his favorite pair of pjs and is wondering if anyone knows where he can find another pair.
Here's how the Online Pajama Party works: This isn't a writing contest, it's a PJ Party. Simply email fun pajama remembrances and a photo, if you'd like. (Readers love to see photos, but a photo isn't required.)
And YES, there's a fun Pajama Party Giveaway, too! A gorgeous, leather-bound colorful set of 12 monthly journals, slippers, pajamas, books to read when you're in your pajamas (including some copies of my book, Muffins and Mayhem), sleeping masks, pillows, blankets, hot water bottles, and some lullabies on CDs to help you drift off to sleep.
It's all happening at these links:

Here are two PJ remembrances...
"Hello Suzanne, please enter me in your PJ Memories/Giveaway promotion.
My memory to share is not from childhood. In fact, it was 'only' 25 years ago. We were on our honeymoon and stopped to shop at a Banana Republic store. They used to feature product descriptions that were great fun to read, so colorful that it almost dared you not to buy the product. I was hooked on the Artisans Nightshirt. It brought to mind long, winter evenings writing and reading in a cozy loft. The nightshirt was great, but a few rips and tears over the years finally reduced it to disposal by my wife (although she has never really confessed to it!)
Banana Republic has changed the focus of their products and marketing, so you won't find the Artisans Nightshirt there now. However, this contest might cause another reader to say, "I know about that shirt, and I know where you can get one now!" If so, please feel free to play matchmaker and help me exchange contact and or product info.
Thanks, and sweet dreams."
"Dear Suzanne, my favorite pj's are an old t-shirt and a pair of yoga pants AND a gift I just got for my 50th--a Snuggie. I thought it would be the stupidest thing anyone ever invented (and then gave me) but I LOVE that thing. And so does the cat--he appropriately 'snuggles' into it too. Have a copy of your book Suzanne. Love it!"--Suzan Herskowitz
Have fun at the Online Pajama Party--everyone's invited!
Thanks for reading with me. It's so good to read with friends.
