Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Have A Winner!!!

Okay, everybody, we have a winner to the Avid Reader contest.  It's Shelleyrae, author of the blog bookdout.  Here is her entry.

I can't resist $50 to spend on books!

I read about five books a week (250+ a year) so I will pretty much read anywhere, anytime: while in labour (between contractions); while filling up my car at the petrol pump (it has 2 tanks and it takes a while); while swimming; at school I used to prop my textbook up on my desk with another book inside and I'd be reading while the teacher droned on about something as unimportant as algebra; instead of sleeping. LOL

I think we can all agree that Shelleyrae is truly an Avid Reader.  Congratulations.  Let me know how to make out the $50 gift certificate and where to send it.  It's truly a pleasure to present it to you.  As for the rest of you, thank you for participating.  I'll make sure the next contest makes it a little tougher for Shelleyrae!


  1. Congratulations, Shelleyrae! Reading during contractions, that has everyone beat!

  2. If it's any consolation, Jasmine, you were in 2nd place - a very distant 2nd place!

  3. Wow - I am thrilled - thank you! The great prize will be a big help in feeding my obsession :)

    Since the book depository doesn't do gift certificates, my next choice would be Bookworld ( ) but I don't know if that will be possible for you to arrange, so it will probably be easiest to organise an Amazon GC.

    Either way you can gift it to me via shraeron at [gmail] dot com

    Thank you again, and thanks also Jasmine!
