And the Winner Is ...

I hope you all had a fun and safe Halloween.  My legs are sore from walking all over our hilly neighborhood with my trick-or-treaters.  It's a good thing I got some exercise, though, because now I've got mounds of candy all over my house.  The good stuff (meaning anything chocolate) has this funny way of disappearing while the kids are at school—into my mouth!  Just another reason I'm not the biggest fan of Halloween ...

At any rate, I thought you might be interested in seeing who won my giveaway for Shadows, the second book in Ilsa J. Bick's YA zombie trilogy.  It was ...

Jake Rideout

Congratulations!  If you would please send me your mailing address (blogginboutbooksATgmailDOTcom), I'll get the book out to you just as soon as I can.  

If you didn't win this time, never fear—I always have more giveaways coming down the pipe.  You'll definitely want to stay tuned.


  1. My kiddos at school were all complaining that their "legs hurt" the morning after Halloween. That made me laugh then to read your comments! I am loving these days when I can sit out on the driveway with our firepit and give out the goodies to the munchkins. We had a blast. Aren't the nights wonderful?? Gosh, I might need a sweater this winter....

    PS. I loved Neal Shusterman's Unwind. It was a great discussion at Book Group.

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love yours and have gotten some ideas to add to mine. Thanks for sharing your knowledge at last week (or was it the week before? They all mesh together for me now.)


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!
