Winning Librarians

"When you absolutely positively have to know, ask a librarian." -American Library Association

"I'm of a fearsome mind to throw my arms around every living librarian who crosses my path, on behalf of the souls they never knew they saved." - Barbara Kingsolver, novelist

"What can I say? Librarians rule!" - Regis Philbin

The prizes!


Here, in alpha order, are the librarians whose names were randomly chosen to win a copy each of I SO DON'T DO MYSTERIES, I SO DON'T DO SPOOKY and I SO DON'T DO MAKEUP; a MAKEUP t-shirt, and a MAKEUP tote. Congratulations!

Ann, Eau Claire District Library, MI

Laura, Charlevoix Public Library, MI

Marcia, Huntington Branch Library, CT

Marsha, Ridgecrest Branch Library, CA

Michele, Eagle Mountain Public Library, UT


So, Ann, Laura, Marcia, Marsha and Laura, I will battle the holiday crowds at the post office for you! Oh, you say, tell us a little about the post office. If you insist....The first postmaster general was John Wannamaker. If my package to you gets lost, one of us will fill out Form 1510. To mail your packages from the largest post office in the country, I would have to travel back to New York.

Thank you to all who entered!

Good idea, Barrie. I agree that librarians are the bestest of people. My thesis advisor says that you should always be friends with the librarians if you want to be a college professor. I guess the same holds true for authors.
