Winners and more: The Disappearing Spoon by Sam Kean

The Disappearing Spoon is one of my favorite books I’ve read this year (see my review), and I think it will have a very wide appeal.  I’m very excited to be able to pick 2 people to win a copy, thanks to Little, Brown and Company/Hachette Books.  I strongly encourage everyone else to obtain a copy from their book provider of choice, and support the production of fantastic books like this one.

Sam Kean will be interviewed next week on Blog Talk Radio next week, and I’m including the announcement at the end of this post.

The lucky winners are:

  • Bailey
  • Barbara

Thank you to everyone that answered the bonus question– I enjoyed reading the responses, particularly the punny ones (“My favorite element is Iron because when you put a lot of Fe in a circle you have a ferrous wheel.”) .  All together, 16 different elements were mentioned, with gold getting the top spot (with 5 people including it), followed by iron.

Blog Talk Radio Announcement

(I’m including this announcement because I want to support the book.  I don’t know anything more about it that is listed here, I’m aware there is an issue with the date listed.  I think it’s Wednesday, not Thursday, but I’ve sent e-mail to clarify!)

Join us as we interview

Winners: To Surrender to a Rogue

Thanks to Hachette Books/Forever, I was able to offer a giveaway for 5 copies of To Surrender to a Rogue by Cara Elliott.

For a bonus entry in the drawing, I asked what style of romance people prefer.  Unsurprisingly, there were a variety of answers.  I did have some company in liking books where the characters spend time getting to know each other, then fall in love.  However, many of you like the fireworks at the beginning, and I think you will really enjoy this book.

Thanks to, the winners are

  • Scorpio M.
  • cjsime007
  • etirv (already won elsewhere)
  • Crystal F
  • Teresa W.
  • Lucy Balch

I’ve already sent them e-mail, and hope to hear back quickly!  Thank you to everyone that entered.

Winners: To Desire A Devil

Congratulations to

  • Jaime P
  • Deedles
  • Beth
  • etirv
  • coffee

They’ve each won a copy of To Desire a Devil from Hachette Books via my giveaway.  This was probably my favorite romance novel of the year (I’ll be looking back over my 2009 reads soon, and will confirm), so I suspect the winners will enjoy it as well.
