The poop is loose. That's what they tell me: Poop Culture is now on shelves in stores across the country, including many Barnes & Nobles as well as major independents like Powell's, Atomic Books, Quimby's, the Tattered Cover, and more. But I want proof. So the first three people to send me a picture of themselves holding up a copy of Poop Culture in a bookstore will win a free PoopReport t-shirt of their choice!

(And if you go to a store that -- *gasp* -- doesn't have a copy, the best thing in the world you can do for me is ask them to order some.)

Email your picture to dave {at} poopreport.com. If you need incentive, check out The Pootique to see which shirt you like best. Better hurry – there's a lot of people out there who really want a free shirt!

My wife came up with a way to cheat this contest.
She said I could take my copy of your book that I bought online and go up to any bookstore and take a picture.

You should demand more than one copy of the book in the photo.

Do libraries count?

What do you mean you didn't see it? It was right next to the toilet!

Bad kitty! Bathtubs are NOT litterboxes!

This was posted on my Myspace page this morning. The image is clearly taken from my website. At first I was outraged that someone would try to cheat at this contest...



... until I realized the guy was just being funny.

Do libraries count? No, alas, because my goal is to get people going into stores and asking for my book.

Will you be doing a signing tour? Any Larry King, Lou Dobbs appearances? I'll be getting my copy directly.

The first sighting is in! It was cameraphoned directly to me. I'll post it tomorrow once the sender tells me who he is and where he spotted the book.

I just got back from the mall. As I was leaving the mall I remembered this contest but I didn't have my camera with me.

Do I still have time?

Sighting #2! This is Mark at the Tattered Cover in Denver, Colorado. Mark is a high school buddy of mine whom I've recently been reacquainted with thanks to the magic of Myspace; check out his brand new video podcast here.



Mark says: "Many writers have come and gone, but only Dave Praeger has pooped and gone."

This is no fair. I am now completely certain that I've been jinxed for all contests. The Poop Gods must have broken my camera. All I get when the button option is on photos and not review is a blank screen with some green lines. I get the feeling they should be brown lines.

Chris Rockwell reports sightings at the Borders in Boise, Idaho. He says the B&N was sold out. (!) But he didn't send a picture, so I've still got one more shirt to give away...

Chris also said that he moved my book from wherever they had shelved it straight to the bestsellers table, where he watched someone pick it up and buy it. I heartily encourage all PoopReporters to adopt this practice. I'll gladly bribe you with PoopReport stickers if you do so.

I'll gladly plug it on myspace and my website.

When someone like you does well, Dave-O, it restores what little faith I have in mankind. You're one of the good guys.

Poopers and readers beware. Buy Dave's book or I'll beat your ass.

Damn! I want to be #3, but I just ordered the book on Amazon... If I only knew it was available in bookstores.

That's ok, though... I'm going to take a picture with the book and send it in anyway...

While trolling the archives recently, eagle-eyed Gasputin realized that sighting #3 never arrived. He writes:

"Here's my photo, taken at the Barnes & Noble in Camp Hill, PA. I had to take it in the children's section to avoid the morbidly obese clerk who reprimanded me for violating company policy by trying to take a picture inside the store (an example of 'word terrorism', I guess).

"I placed two other copies in the 'Bestselling Paperbacks' area, although I considered placing them in the 'Gifts for Dad' section."



Congrats to Gasputin. And though that officially ends this contest, what the hell -- send in a pic of yourself with my book and I'll send you some PoopReport stickers.

And coming in a distant fourth is Frank2401. He says: "Sorry I look so horrid but it's Monday and I had to take it in front of the mirror because no one else is here."

I love this site. It makes me feel all loosey goosey. Like the slow rising vibes of a shitting frenzy.
