We have a winner ...

Before I let you in on who's the winner of the 25 Followers Giveaway I want to thank you all for participating. I was intrigued by all your answers to the question about the Reading Tree and would like to share some with you.

“Low-hanging books would be all about political economy and intelligence, and the higher up ones would be delightful fiction.” by Marli,

“The very thought of a tree growing books for me is delightful and I imagine such a tree would bear different books in different weather. Perhaps fantasy adventure in the summer; mysteries and thrillers in the fall; thought provoking nonfiction to curl up with in the winter; and then some light romance in the spring!” by Lisa,

“Anything that makes me smile, think, question and gain knowledge.” by Jennifer,

“I would have books of poetry, books about love and books that make you happy when you read them! Mushy stuff!” by Linda.

Now I guess you might be curious about my own answer too, so … just like Lisa I'd love my Reading Tree to grow books according to the seasons, with light and funny like chick lit in spring, some adventurous science fiction in summer, suspenseful thrillers in fall, and in winter … well, I intend to hibernate in winter anyway!

So, the time has arrived to announce the winner!

Oh and before I forget – I decided to do the drawing of the winner the old fashioned way. I wrote your names on paper slips, and obviously if you had two or three entries your name ended up on two or three paper slips. Then I put them all in an old straw hat, gave those folded paper slips a good stirring and …

… picked the lucky winner!


E-mail is on the way and please get back to me within the next 48 hours!
