Winners of the Literary Giveaway!

literarybloghop_februaryCongratulations to the winners of last week’s Literary Giveaway and thanks to those who entered!

Also, the Classics Club Spin picked #20 — which means I’ll be reading The Trumpeter of Krakow by Eric P. Kelly.  For those who don’t know, Trumpeter is a Newbery award-winning children’s book,which I’ve been meaning to read since I visited Krakow a couple of years ago.  It was one of my favorite parts of Eastern Europe, and since I’m a quarter Polish myself, that makes this book all the more interesting.  Of course Poland wasn’t Poland during the time of this novel, which takes place in the 13th century.  This book will also count towards the Around the World Challenge.

So, no Faulkner for me right now, although he’s an author I’ll have to tackle one of these days.  Funny how you get yourself scared to read certain authors!  I tackled Tolstoy last year but Faulkner really intimidates me.

Happy Valentine’s Day and President’s Day weekend (if you’re in the U.S.) — we had a lot of good snow meltage yesterday and we’re looking forward to the 3 day weekend.  Hope you’re doing something fun!

    I can’t believe I won! Thank you so much for the giveaway and for making it international. I can’t seem to find your e-mail to send you my address, though.
    Mine is luciacontilde at hotmail dot com.

    I tried reading Faulkner years ago but didn’t get further than page 20. I know he’s ‘important’ but he’s not someone I would be desperately keen to read so good luck!
