Summer Reads Giveaway Winners

Musings of a Bookish Kitty is now into its third year, and I could not have done it without you. Thank you for the anniversary wishes and all of the support you have given me over the past two years.

There was a great turn out for the Hachette Book Group USA Summer Reads Giveaway, in which five people will receive 14 books each. Thank you to all who participated! I got some amazing recommendations and look forward to reading them.

I changed the rules slightly when tallying the votes for the drawings. Those who answered both of my questions (1. recommending a book you think I might like and 2. listing a book that you became interested in or read based on, in part, my review) received two drawing entries, one entry for each question answered. Those who only answered one or the other, received one entry. I wanted to reward those who followed the directions to a "T" without leaving anyone out. As promised, I counted up the comments left by participants after entering the giveaway, which resulted in an extra entry per comment. For those kind enough to spread the word about the giveaway, three extra points were added in. Once the entries were tallied, I clicked over to RANDOM.ORG, the True Random Number Service, where the winners were selected.

Now on to the moment you have all been waiting for!

  7. This is definitely not "payback" being one of the winners in the book giveaway, but I'm back to let you know that I have a little blog award for you. Happy Monday :-)!
