January Book Winners



Child #4 donned her extra-large $4.00 Walmart high heels and chose the following names. Oh wait! There were so many names of wonderful bloggy commenters that we felt bad only choosing two. So, we chose four. Besides, it helps with my decluttering resolution. And, quite frankly, I am not doing well with the New Year's resolutions. This is the first year that I've been so negligent.

Anyway, anyway, anyway. Child # 4, with great pomp and circumstance, chose four names. I chose five books. Five, because we don't want the last person not to have a choice. Name #1 gets her/his choice of one of the five books; Name #2 gets his/her choice of one of four books; and so on, down the line.

Here are the five books (in alpha order by the authors' last name):

A Good House by Bonnie Burnard (Adult)
I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You by Ally Carter (Young Adult)
Slam by Nick Hornby (Young Adult)
Sushi for Beginners by Marian Keyes (Adult)
Light My Fire by Katie MacAlister (Adult)

And (drum roll) the winners are:

1. Jim D
2. candycana
3. J. Cheney
4. Beth at Blind as a Bat

So, shoot me an email at barrieDOTsummyATgmailDOTcom. Congratulations!

So, um, how is everyone doing with their New Year's Resolutions? Is it just me, or is this a particularly tough year for keeping them???

Congrats to the winners. This is the first year I've actually kept mine.....probably because I only made ONE...:)

Happy to report my New Year's resolution has been a success.
And it was...to eat all the Christmas chocolates by mid-January!
(It helps to set reasonable and attainable goals.)

My main resolution was to read more books and that's going well. My resolution for writing 3 books this year isn't going quite so well. Lalala

My resolution this year was the same as last year's - - continue my "Un-Diet" - - I read about this on another blog, and decided to follow it . . . and last year lost 16 pounds. It consists of eating right (veggies, good foods, cut down on sweets, etc. - - just using common sense about food), portion control, and exercising at least 3 times a week (LOTS of walking). Works for me - - and this year, so far so good. I haven't weighed myself yet (the Dr. will do that for me next month at checkup time), but I feel GREAT!
