And the winner is...

I did this the old fashion way. First I gathered all the materials I was going to need.




After writing all the names down in a sheet of paper (counting more than one entry when applied), I cut them into equal pieces.




Then I mixed it in a bowl. I was specially careful not to let a piece of paper fall on the floor because my all-too-willing-to-eat-anything dog was on watch.



Then I asked my husband to take one piece of paper without looking. That part wasn't difficult because he was playing some videogame which required him to shoot some bad guys and he was too afraid to get killed so he didn't even take his eyes off the computer screen.

And the lucky winner was...



Kelly!!!

And her comment was:

"That is such a lovely book cover! And it would be very helpful to keep your books in nice condition while they are being read.
It is hard to pick favourite books, as I'm sure any avid reader would tell you, however I'll tell you three books I have read which I loved!
- A Painted House by John Grisham. Not his usual style at all, but an excellent story!
- The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. If you have seen the movie and have therefore judged the book based on this, erase that judgement from your mind! The book is far superior, with a richer storyline and a different ending. This book made me think a lot and cry buckets.
- The Power of One by Bryce Courtenay. Since you live in Portugal I'll assume you haven't heard of the Australian author Bryce Courtenay. All of his books are great stories, but The Power of One was my favourite of all. You won't be disappointed!
Thanks so much for the opportunity to win!"

Congratulations, Kelly! You have won my first ever book cover! I really hope you like it. I'll be sending you an email asking for your address.

Thank you to everyone who participated. Your book suggestions were really interesting and I can't wait to put together a list and go shopping on Amazon. This giveaway was so much fun, I'm inclined to do this more often :) I hope those of you who are new around here and found my blog because of the giveaway will eventually enjoy what you can read here and visit me again.

  3. Thank you very much Nancy Sue, that's very sweet of you to say. I don't have many visitors and comments in my blog, so i was pleasantly surprise to receive so many participants. But I know what you mean, I wish I had even more so that the list of books would be even bigger! :)
