Bolaño and Walser Winners!

Using random.org I plugged in the appropriate numbers for the Bolaño/Walser giveaway.  Though both winners have their own blogs, I promise that was not a condition of winning — it was all random.org’s doing.  Also, one winner was a brand-new commenter whose first comment was for this contest.  The other has been here as long as I have — almost. 

I appreciate everyone who entered the contest, and I especially thank you all for your kind words of well-wishing on my two-year anniversary.  It’s been a lot of fun and much of that is due to your reading, commenting, and support.  This is a great community.  So . . .

A copy of Roberto Bolano’s Amulet goes to Selena who writes at Like Glass – congrats!  Now I expect you to comment more :)

A copy of Robert Walser’s Microscripts goes to Isabel who writes at Books and Other Stuff — congrats too!  Isabel has been a very welcome presence on this blog since its earliest days.  Thanks!

Emails are going out to Selena and Isabel.

    Oh, another interesting factoid: both winners entered only for the books they won. Though the odds were on your side, I’m sorry to those of you who entered for both.

    Yeah, we got karma-hexed for being greedy!

    In reading, greed is good, Lee. Alas . . .

    Minimal hard feelings, Trevor, and to the winners: enjoy!
    I guess I’ll have to buy the damn book now.

    Bolano and I were meant for one another! Hear-hear to more commenting though! I’m getting much less shy about that.

    Selena, I sent you an email earlier today. Maybe you haven’t responded to it yet, and it’s sitting there. Still, since you’ve left a comment here after I sent the email, maybe I have the wrong address. At any rate, can you email me your address and I’ll get this in the mail :)

    Trev, you can clearly see my priorities – blogging before email! :P

    I replied though – you had the correct email :)
