Winners!

Thank you all for participating in my 900 Followers Contest. If all goes well, I'll have an epic 1000 Followers coming in the next few months. Whee!

Random.org picked the lucky winners, and they are:

Deb Salisbury, who chose Soulless, by Gail Carriger. What a sweet cover!

Lenny Lee, who didn't pick a particular book but I will make him, as he is the sweetest kid blogger you've ever met, and if you don't know Lenny, you need to. I'm so thrilled he won!

Oy. Where was I? Oh yes, the third winner.


Peggy Eddleman, who picked Divergent by Veronica Roth. Great pick, Peggy!

And finally, I'm doing another winner outside of the random picking. That is for Gail, who requested that if she won, she'd rather I donate a book to a local library or school. For that selfless suggestion, I'm pledging to donate books to both my local library and my kids' school library. (Maybe one last trip to the Borders blow-out sale won't feel so guilty now!) Gail, you are a sweetheart. :)

Thanks to everyone for joining in!

Aw shoot! Now I'm going to have to buy DIGGING FOR STONE or pick it up at my beautiful local library. Congratulations to your winners.

I may have to unfollow you, then refollow you to try and be number 1,000. It's a powers of 10 thing.

I think that the 1000th follower is not too far, because you have such a unique blog.

Congrats to all the winners. Especially to you, Lenny! Olga is right : your 1000th follower is not too far away as your blog is, indeed, such a grand unique one, Roland

Congrats to the winners, what awesome reads!

Gail said...

Thanks Lydia for the honorable mention! I'm so impressed that you've reached 900! I' still trying to hit 100 followers!
When I found myself thinking about bunches of book titles I could request I realized that a library could use another book even more than me and the idea was born. Please include my congrats to the local library and school library from a retired teacher, now writer!

Lydia K said...

You got it, Gail.
