The Sunday Salon: Giveaway Winner Announced!

So I did the thing and the winner of a signed, hard back copy of Taken by Storm by Angela Morrison is:

Nancye from Kentucky who blogs at Whatever It Takes!

Congratulations Nancye. I'll be sending you an email to get your address and will mail that book out tomorrow. I hope you love it! :) Read it, then come back and let me know what you think.

As part of the giveaway, I asked everyone what their taboo is.... something they should stay away from, but they just can't. I found it interesting that so many of us list some sort of food item as our taboo. Sad!!! But so true. Next on the list it appears is shopping, whether it be books, or the dollar store, or a certain store like Walmart and Target and Khols. Third on the list of most popular taboo is too much time on the computer. I relate!

Thanks everyone for participating.

Other bookish thoughts for this Sunday Salon:

** I got book club going again this week. I had a blast. Talked too much, but it was fun. I think I'll do a separate post on book club and let you know all the books we are trying to pick from for our upcoming schedule, just to see what you think.

** BBAW was fun, as I mentioned in another post. I've added a bunch to my reader. Some very fun looking blogs! My favorite parts of BBAW this time: the blog talk radio show, the post by Raych that I totally loved, the attention Natasha gave Utah bloggers, remembering Dewey, and all the general fun blogging activity! Let's do it again next year. Amy, are you up to it?

** Last week was cool too because I got a huge pile of really fun YA books from the library (Catalyst, Octavian Nothing Vol.2, Chalice, Love Peace and Baby Ducks, So Yesterday and The Boyfriend List) and a box from Amazon (The Help, The Actor and the Housewife, Forest Born, The Vampire Diaries) and an ARC from Random House (Last Night in Twisted River by John Irving) and a book from won from Amanda (Hollywood is Like High School with Money) and... I think that's about it. I'm so anxious to read them all that I'm giving my self a panic attack!!

** Meanwhile, I'm still working away on Sacred Hearts and Cranford. Both of which I really should be reading right now instead of blogging. You know how it goes.

Well, I'm thinking I could ramble on and on, but instead of doing that, I'll just hit the button and get this winner information out there! And then go read. :)


  1. Congratulations, Nancye! I hope you enjoy the book. :-)

    My taboo item would probably be food too, sad to say. Book buying would probably close behind, that and the computer. So it seems like I fit right in with the rest of your commenters!

    I am glad you had such a good time with your book club! Sounds like fun.

    I hope you are having a great week, Suey!
