Dreaming of Books Giveaway Hop Winner

 Hello everyone! I'm so excited today! I can't believe how much interest there is here now as a result of the contest. But you probably want the winner, huh?

Low and behold, congratulations to Rane! You are the winner of a book from the Book Depository of up to $15 US! Yay!

But here's the catch everyone, I was feeling so overwhelmed by everyone here, and in hopes that you guys will stick around, I'm giving away a second book, this one of $10 US!

So a second round of congratulations are in order to Jennifer (Kalman)!! Congrats.

Both winners have been notified and have 48 hours to get back to me or I'll draw a new winner for the prize.

Also, I'll be participating in the February Hop as well, so keep an eye out guys! I haven't decided 100 percent what I'm giving away then. But I hope you like it! :D

Okay, so also available to you guys are the lists of books that YOU GUYS READ IN 2010! Yes, these are the books that you enjoyed most, so please take a look (if not only for the reason that it took me forever to compile the list). They are separated by genre, alphabetical by vote frequency. By far, the winner of the year was the Hunger Games Trilogy, or one of the books therein (I combined series if there was more than one book nominated).

Thanks Rane for checking back with me! I'm so glad you did!

@Ashelynn - I really couldn't believe there was that much interest either! I'm so stoked!! It was a lot of work with the books, though. I wouldn't have minded less there. or with counting up all the entrances. There were actually 282 if you counted all the people who had the extra entry for twitter.
