Reading and giveaway winner

Thank you to everyone who entered the giveaway and gave me book recommendations.  I have put them into a spread sheet and I have 111 different authors – some with specific book suggestions and some who have all their books recommended.  If anyone wants a copy of the spread sheet please let me know.

The most suggested book(s) are the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich with SIX recommendations.

I am off on a 26 hour bus ride tomorrow and I downloaded three of the suggested books onto my Kobo from the library:

The Litigators – John Grisham

The Night Circus – Eric Morgenstern

The Virgin Cure – Amy McKay

Don’t feel left out if you didn’t recommend these books.  They are just the ones I could get from my library. I’ve got a bit of sewing to do as well, and some crossword puzzles. And a pillow and blanket Smile

I also have:

One for the Money – Janet Evanovich – first in the Stephanie Plum series on a CD, and

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society - Mary Ann Shaffer & Annie Barrows  on order from the library.

And on to the winner!  I used the random number generator this time and it chose # 163….
