And The Winner Is.......

So - the winner of Whispers of Heaven and The Last Knight by Candice Proctor, April's Author Spotlight - nope, I didn't forget

I know I said that I would do this on Thursday - gulp. But Thursday was a right-off and I thought I had written Friday. But I didn't do it Friday 'cause I forgot when I said Thursday, but thought I said Friday that I couldn't do it on Friday because I was having a group of friends over.

I know I've mentioned them before - Ann, Deb, Janet, Janice, Lori, Sue (and then me of course). We all went back to school together when for one reason or another we found ourselves at a crossroads in our lives - twelve years ago I think now - and we have kept in touch ever since. Four times a year we get together at someone's house and just have a potluck and catch up and talk about stuff - important stuff - like Survivor, So You Think You Can Dance versus Dancing with the Stars, politics, our jobs - you name it - we talk about it. It's always such a fun evening though a few of us commented last night that you can tell we are getting older. They used to last - sometimes until one or two in the morning - but I don't think any of us can party like we used to; last night ended around 11:00 pm I think. *sad sigh*

Last night it was my turn to host. For me the the funnest part was 3 of them and me all trooping down to 'the Library' - them with bags - to load up on books to read. Hopefully some may want to do a guest post on what they liked. Lori went for the Lara Adrian books, Sue went for some Susan Mallery and Deb went for whatever had a hunky guy on the cover.

So that's why I didn't get to this until now - I had to work today on top of that.

But - I have everyone's name listed - and again whoever is in spot # 8 in the random organizer site gets to try one of my favourite authors.

And the winner is....

Peggy P

OMG - there is nothing better than getting together with friends and chatting over a big ass pile of books. And y'all had food too! Sounds positively heavenly.

Congrats, Peggy P.

Kristie, that sounds like an incredible tradition to have between friends--books, book chat, food and being comfortable with each other.
