Literary Giveaway Winners

This morning, I’m proud to announce the winners of my literary giveaway! Using, I put each person down for the giveaway of their choice — and for those who wanted either book, I put them both times I ran

First, the winner of A Room with a View by E.M. Forester is…… Emily from Evening All Afternoon!

Second, the winner of My Antonia by Willa Cather is…….Allie from A Literary Odyssey!

Thanks for joining the giveaway, and once I get your addresses Emily and Allie, I’ll send those out to you.

    1. Emily, yes, I did like the “tell me a book to read” aspect of the giveaway. I do need to do that again sometime. I’ll try to get the book sent to you today!

  1. Congrats to Emily and Allie! Two very worthy readers. Can’t wait to see what they have to say about the books.

    (And thank you for including me in the drawing. I got swallowed by my email and haven’t told you yet that I appreciate your extra effort on my behalf.)
