Back in June, when I was participating in the Armchair BEA, a number of events and blogs had giveaways associated with them. I am a sucker for a contest, and so I entered some of them. And I won a few of them!

Books have been rolling in for the last six weeks and wanted to pull them all together (a little belatedly) and share the bounty with you:

Armchair BEA Swag

First, were the prizes from the Armchair BEA folks themselves:

From them, I won Dead End in Norvelt by Jack Gantos (donated by Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group) and ebooks of J.B. Lynn’s The Hitwoman Gets Lucky and The Hitwoman and The Family Jewels (donated by the author).

I also won a couple contests from book bloggers:

From Caribou’s Mom, I won a Beth Kephart prize package. I was allowed to pick any of Beth’s books up to $30 in value, and I greedily chose three of them: Small Damages, Undercover, and Dr. Radway’s Sarsaparilla Resolvent. (How can you not opt for a book with “sarsaparilla” in the title?)

The Typewriter Girl

And from Always with a Book, I won Alison Atlee’s The Typewriter Girl.

Thank you to all of the prize donors and book bloggers who generously offered giveaways and picked me. I am truly grateful and am looking forward to reading all these exciting books.
