Children's Book Reading Challenge...For Adults!

Saturday, February 28, 2009 Has Spoken Again *UPDATED*

I planned to post the winners of my giveaways this morning, but ended up dragging my sick daughter all over town. She's got some kind of virus that's giving her nasty cold sores on her lips, inflamed gums and a general feeling of ickiness. Poor kid. Now I've got 6 different kinds of meds to give her. She's been moaning, "Why did I have to get sick? Why me?" all day. It's sad.
ANYWAY, to brighten up your day and mine, here are the winners (as determined by
1 copy of Matrimony by Joshua Henkin goes to ... Linda! (P.S. Linda is giving away three copies of Drood by Dan Simmons on her blog - enter here) - *Correction: Linda is not the one giving away Drood - Carey is. I mistakenly identified Linda as the author of a blog she follows. Sorry about that! Linda, please email me; the rest of you, go on over and enter CAREY's giveaway (the above link is correct).

1 copy of Freshman for President by Ally Condie goes to ... Stacie!
Congratulations, ladies. Please email your snail mail address to so I can forward your info to Ally and Josh. Thanks to the two of them for offering their books for these giveaways.
If you didn't win this time, never fear! More giveaways are coming. In fact, check back tomorrow to learn about my newest contest. You won't want to miss it, trust me.


  1. Hi Susan,

    There must have been a little mix up somewhere...I didn't enter your Matrimony giveaway. Re-check Linda's profile, I think she follows my blog but doesn't have one of her own...maybe her email is listed and you can get ahold of her that way? I'll enter you in my Drood drawing, thanks for visiting.


  2. I'm sorry, Carey - you're right, Linda doesn't have a blog. Duh. That's actually the second time I've done that when giving away books! Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

  3. Susan, I just emailed you about Matrimony. Sure hope I'm the right Linda. And I just entered the Michelle Moran giveaway. Maybe I'll get lucky twice. Thanks.


Comments make me feel special, so go crazy! Just keep it clean and civil. Feel free to speak your mind (I always do), but be aware that I will delete any offensive comments.

P.S.: Don't panic if your comment doesn't show up right away. I have to approve each one before it posts to prevent spam. It's annoying, but it works!
