Comment number 12 was written by Mel. Congratulations, Mel! E-mail me at cbethblog(at)gmail(dot)com with your mailing address.

For fun, here are the haiku that were submitted. (I think "haiku" is the plural of "haiku," like "deer" and "fish." Any experts out there?)

Mel's haiku:
Is reading a sin?
I still pray that I do win
Even if it is.

Mama to a diva's haiku:
Something I can read
A perfect mental escape
Give away from Beth

Liz's haiku:
Digest memories
"Humor in Uniform" and
"All In A Day's Work"

beckiwithani's haiku:
My husband Donal
Rolls his eyes that I like it ...
I read anyway.

beckiwithani's extra credit haiku series:
Have you seen Mad Men?
On TV - A & E.
Mentions the Digest.

It's set in '60.
Readers Digest just published
That cigarettes kill.

With slogans and sheen:
"Be a man! Smoke Lucky Strikes!"
The ad-men prevail.

d's haiku:
All abridged books read
like life in these United States
Digest but don't taste

ElleBee's haiku:
Lots of magazines
But none bring memories like
Bathroom read RD

Sandi's haiku:
Reading is my real love.
Blogging is my fun hobby.
Help me find some love.

Bri's haiku:
I'll write this for you
If I can get cookies too
For referring me

Anna's haiku:
The digest I would like
Too cheap to buy my own one
My poem not good

Thanks to everyone who entered, and special thanks to all the haiku-writers--I got a kick out of reading them all!
