Totally Off Topic (Unless You're a Stephanie Plum Fan)

Make Your Own Stephanie Plum Video! We've been waiting so long for a Stephenie Plum movie... Borders decided to make their own. And they want yours, too. In honor of Janet Evanovich's next Plum adventure, Finger Lickin' Fifteen, (available June 23, 2009) they're looking for fan videos of scenes from her books. How to Share Your Video
  1. Shoot your 2-10 minute video. Can be a scene or full book from any of Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum books. Short is fine! Be creative! Have fun!
  2. Upload your video to YouTube. (You must be a registered YouTube user to upload. For more information, go to YOUTUBE HELP PAGE.)
  3. Send the URL of your YouTube video to
  4. We may share your videos as we receive them with Borders customers around the world via the Borders Shortlist email and on
You can view Border's 10 minute movie version of Janet's first Stephanie Plum book, "One For the Money" here. It's pretty cute for a 10 minute movie! What a great marketing idea... asking fans to make their own movies. I can't wait to see what people come up with! What do you think of the idea?
