Yipee!



Look what came in the mail today!


I won it over at Callipider Day's Spring Reading Thing Saturday Draws. I haven't won something in such a long time and it being a book just makes me do a happy dance. Now really, tell me, who just cannot use another book to read. I'd take them all if I could!


But when I opened it up, Be. Still. My. Heart! Delia Latham signed it for me! My very first official signed novel. Thank you Delia! You made my day.

And thank you to Katrina for putting all the work into these giveaways each week during the spring reading challenge. And thanks to Brandilyn Collins (Kanner Lake site)for putting the word out to all her author friends who responded overwhelmingly. Thanks to all the authors, of which there is way too many to list! I'm telling ya. It's amazing. Katrina's been giving about a dozen books away each week now for weeks and if you want to get in on it, I think there is still a week or two left. Just go over to Callipider Days on Saturdays and get your name in there.

Congratulations, how awesome! I won one also, and I think it's just the coolest thing that it comes in signed by the author. My first ever, and I'm still tickled pink about it!
Enjoy!

Isn't that just the best thing! Katrina has done a great job with the books. Will look forward to a review later.
I got one too and is the first one I've had that's signed also!

Katrina said...

From what I've heard, many of the authors are autographing their books as they send them out and I think that's wonderful! So glad yours arrived and I look forward to hearing how you like it. Yep, 2 more Saturdays of giveaways. It's been a bit of work, but I've been so excited to see so many people winning free books. There's not much that beats a free book! :)

Congratulations! Happiness is definitely a brand new book!

Congratulations, Susanne. Just winning that book would have been exciting but my word, she autographed it too. Katrina and all the authors participating in this giveaway are just fantastic.

Lucky you!

Congratulations Susanne!

If anyone deserves to win a "book" it is you:) Once everything settles down around here (probably in a few years) I look forward to checking out some of the books you've reviewed:)

Congrats:)
