And the winners are...

Thanks for all your wonderful comments in response to the giveaway carnival! I decided to give away 2 books, as follows.

The giveaways were sent out this week:

Witch Child by Celia Rees (hardcover, teen fiction) goes to Popinfresh, stop by and say congrats at her blog, Popin's Lair. She got herself a copy of Witch Child by Celia Rees. Popsy, I like your explanation of how difficult it was to imagine how to live in that time; I think Rees' book does a good job with getting you into the head of the characters and can help you visualize what they went through. Prithee, read and report soon.

Seabiscuit: An American Legend by Laura Hillenbrand. (paperback, non-fiction) goes to to Dixie, because it is a wonderful book and her blog A few of my favorite things is completely lacking in any sort of book review. I'm counting on Seabiscut's heroic story to inspire her to write one.

Note to contestants: I read all your entries and followed your profiles - thanks so much to each of you for the great comments. Unfortunately, some of you had no contact info on your profiles or your blogs, so even though your entries were great if I couldn't reach you to make sure you met the conditions, you couldn't win. Sorry.

It was a wonderful read and those poor jockeys-talk about anorexia!
Thank you again for the giveaway.
