- Fizzy Thoughts: and the winners are...

and the winners are...

Friday, June 20, 2008

I held another highly technical drawing this morning to determine the winners of the two book giveaways. I put every one's names into a little bucket that is my candy dish at work when there's candy in it (thank goodness it was empty) and then I shook it until one of the slips of paper jumped out. I was actually going to draw a name, but when as I was shaking the bucket, one of the slips of paper jumped out. I figured any scrap of paper with that kind of motivation, especially at 7:30 in the morning, deserved to win a book.

So for Woman in Red, the slip of paper that so desperately wanted the book was bethany. Nice jumping skills!

And for The Way Life Should Be, Care's slip of paper hopped out and then nicely perched on the edge of the bucket. It was quite the acrobatic move, Care. You would have been impressed.

Congratulations to the winners, and thanks to the rest of you for playing. Stay tuned...I have a few more books to off-load.

Harrumph! Well, if it was 7 a.m., the chartroose slip was obviously snoring away on the bottom of the pile.

Congrats to the winners!

Next time I'll have to remember to do an afternoon drawing, to give everyone an equal opportunity. :-D

In a real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish. ~S.I. Hayakawa

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
~St. Augustine

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.
~Mark Twain
