I don’t usually do posts about what books I receive in the letter box, but today is a special occasion. Because today, I received a book I won last week. Shannon at Giraffe Days held a giveaway to celebrate the 10000th visit to her blog. The competition was great fun as it involved a puzzle and hunt for letters. Anyhow, I won a book!
I was delighted because I don’t often win prizes (maybe because I don’t often participate? How can I win the lotto without playing?) and the book sounds really good. It is The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón. I have a lot of books to read at the moment, but I have the feeling it will make a perfect read when I get some time off in January.
Shannon explained in her post that the first time she won a blog giveaway was for the celebration of its 10000th visit. She thought it was a lovely idea and that she would do the same. Coincidentally, this is also the first time I win a giveaway. There is a bit of a pattern here. So, guess what will happen when this blog reaches 10000 visits?
