~ to everyone who expressed concern at my 'disappearance' ~ thanks. I know who would call the cops and start a search party. Except you don't actually know me, but it's the thought, right?
~ Thanks to my little sister, who let me use her phone when mine was kaput (and typing on her tiny tiny phone = worse than my own, except that hers actually has buttons, so that was a plus of sorts)
~ BIG THANKS to Krista @ Tower of Books, who revealed herself as my Secret Santa, AND who sent me my very own copy of Austenland since Enna Burning was a no-show!!! Thanks, Krista! I got it on Xmas Eve, and I was so excited/confused, because I didn't know why I was getting it, but I love that book (I'm such a girl), AND that's the cover that I like, AND I was really hoping I would get it, as I keep almost buying it. Add that bit of awesomeness to The Comet's Curse you sent, and you rock my socks off. :)
~ Thanks to everyone else who sent me a book or bookish something that I received during the holiday:
~Elie, thanks for Fallen, I just got it, and I am super excited -- I just keep looking at that gorgeous cover!
~Bill, thank you THANK YOU for sending me Hush, Hush and The Immortal just because you're awesome like that!
~Kathy that I work with, thanks for the Borders card!
~ Thanks again to Elie for coming up with the 12 Blogs! It was a blast!
~ Thanks and sorry, anyone I forgot!
But all this is probably not what you came here for, is it? So, with no further dudes*
we have a
Or 5 of them, I should say.
The lucky winners that are about to break my bank account (just kidding. Maybe) with a book of their choice from this list are:
There you have it, folks. Send me your addresses and I will get your books in the mail shortly (or BD will, I suppose).
I'll be drawing some names from my hat-like device within the next day or so, and as soon as I decide just what it is you're getting, I will have some more good news for some of my lovelies.
Ahh, it's good to be back.
*10 cool points+ if you know who says that.
+ note: cool points are utterly useless at this time, though not always; cool points are for bragging rights only, and are not redeemable for any kind of cash except the little pink Monopoly cash, and an occasional green; Monopoly cash redeemable only if you send me a picture of yourself with a monocle and/or top hat.
