Last night, I went to dinner after work so we could pick the books for the next year at our book club. It was a lot of fun, but I wasn't home to read. I did get home to pick the winners for the Anniversary Giveaways, though.
I wanted to thank all of you for continuing to read Lesa's Book Critiques as we go into the tenth year. I've received some very nice notes from readers saying they discovered new authors and books through this blog. Thank you. As a librarian, that's perfect. I love to hear that.
I wish everyone could have won a book. There were 238 entries for the giveaways. Thank you for reading with me, and participating in the giveaways. Don't worry. There will be another giveaway beginning on Friday.
Here are the winners. Barbara W. of Auburn, WA won Gail Oust's Rosemary and Crime. Penny T. from Klamath Falls, OR will receive Poisoned Prose by Ellery Adams. Aubrey H. of Vienna, VA will receive Carol Miller's Murder and Moonshine. Murder, She Barked by Krista Davis goes to Virginia D. of Tempe, AZ. Carol M. of Monroeville, PA will be the recipient of Jefferson Bass' Cut to the Bone. Jeffrey Siger's Mykonos After Midnight goes to Ellie L. of Albuquerque, NM. And, Kristine P. from Modesto, CA won Through the Evil Days by Julia Spencer-Fleming.
Congratulations to all the winners. Thank you, everyone, for entering the contests.
