Book People Do Great Things

Just another example of the great things a book community can do: Author Brenda Novak's 6th Annual Online Auction for Diabetes Research starts today, running from Saturday, May 1 through May 31st. Novak's son has juvenile diabetes (Type I), and she started the auction in 2005 to raise money for research and awareness. Last year, the auction earned over $250,000.

Donated items for bidding include a variety of e-readers, tickets to Rachael Ray's show, a chance to fly in a 4-seater Lancair, and more!

Prizes for this year's competition include: an iPad, a Nook, $100 Gift Certificate to Borders, $200 Gift Certificate to Macy's and $100 Gift Certificate to Olive Garden, and a ticket to FAN 2011 (for those that places the most bids each week).

You can follow the auction on Twitter here. Happy bidding!
