Winner Takes It All

So I don't really consider myself that "lucky" when it comes to winning things in those random-draw-style contests. In my 8 months of blogging I have probably entered over 300 random draw contests, mostly for books, and I have won three actual books, and a few ebooks, thanks to LibraryThing and Goodreads. That's never really stopped me from entering just about every contest that I would be remotely interested in, in the hopes of that incredibly small chance of winning the prize. So when I got the email from Penguin Canada that I had won the entire set of the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead, the high-pitched squeal I emitted stopped my family in their tracks, followed by repetitions of "No way" and "I can't believe it", before I was able to coherently inform my husband of my prize. I have read lots of good reivews about the series, but I had yet to read any of the books for myself. When I got back from my camping vacation yesterday, my box of books was waiting for me at the post office. What a nice coming-home present!



So the moral of the story is enter, enter, enter those contests, because you just might win!

Congratulations!!! What an awesome prize to win. I've only read the first book in the series so far but I really liked it.
