I Won, I Won, I Won!

Sorry if that sounds a little like crowing; I don't win that many things. But I managed to snag a couple of giveaway books recently, and I'm a little late posting about it.

Back in May I was a winner of one of Library Thing's Member Giveaway books – a very nice copy of The Real Opera Ghost and Other Tales by Gaston Leroux. It was offered by LT user SandySchmitz, who got it here very quickly and in great shape. Many thanks, Sandy.

Then, earlier this month I won another contest for a copy of Erik Larson's The Devil in the White City, over at arch thinking (thanks very much, Lorin).

Both books look like great reads – French ghost tales, and true crime at the Chicago World's Fair. Now if I can just finish up those four or five other books I've got going right now . . . .


  1. Congratulations! Winning books is so much fun.

  2. Congrats on your wins! I always get giddy when I win something. Enjoy them!

  3. Congrats to you Joy...it's just so much fun winning books isn't it?

  4. Well, if it couldn't be the lottery this is the next best thing! BTW -- my email is completely jammed up with either something from Amazon.com or Office Depot.com and it just isn't working. I will write as soon as I get it unstuck. Bother!!!

  5. Good for you! I came away empty-handed from LT's early reviews this month, but maybe next month.


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
