Books winner, and another book to win

I apologize for the delay in getting you the winner of last week’s books contest. This weekend kind of got away from me. (I was partying! And living large! Or just doing laundry and eating these fun-size Snickers bars my husband brought home for some reason. Either way.) But, we do need a winner, of course, and so I consulted the random number generator this morning.

Our lucky book winner is commenter 146, S. Elder. Congratulations—please check your email! You’ll be receiving three gorgeous kids’ books from me, as well as an overall feeling of luck (I throw that in at no extra charge).

Big thanks to all who played, and special thanks to Simon and Schuster for their generosity in donating the prizes.

Now, how about a super-quick Sunday contest? I have a copy of The Goodnight Book here, courtesy of Cool Mom Picks. This is a hefty little volume (around 225 pages) with all kinds of different content, as well as truly gorgeous artwork. It’s a perfect baby gift, but if you want to keep it for yourself, I won’t tell.

Want to win it? This is a quickie—go review the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post by 10:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 7:00 a.m. Pacific) on Monday, October 4th, 2010 to be entered. That’s just under 24 hours to get your name in. Winner to be determined by random number generation and sleep number.

Ready? Go!
