I've been super duper lazy about thanking the awesome folks who have held contests in which I've actually...you know...won something. O_O I sooooo love the texture of a new book in my hands. So far I've only flipped through these, as real life scholastic endeavors keep calling. But here's a quick shot of what I received January on my still relatively new Ikea table. I added the flower borders (criminally easy to do, btw, see Picnik post) as a way of expressing my sympathies for the people in the path of the impending snowpocalypse.
Alice I Have Been by Melanie Benjamin from the Random House Reader's Circle.
Kat, Incorrigible (ARC) by Stephanie Burgis from Simon & Schuster.
The Darling Strumpet by Gillian Bagwell from Lori's Reading Corner.
Rescue (ARC) by Anita Streve from Under My Apple Tree.
Style by Lauren Conrad & a $200 Gift Certificate (not pictured because I gave it to my mom as a present :)) from Harper Teen (their contest page has no feeds, I use AlertBox to notify me of new contests!)
Do you guys notice a pattern in the book covers? It's all female and from different genres. I think it's an awesome sign for 2011. Women telling stories about women because we're awesome. *shakes fists* :D
