Manga Giveaway Winner

In order to select a winner of the manga giveaway, I got my husband to pick a number out of a hat. And the winner is…..drumroll…..drumroll….drumroll….Laura (commenter #14)! Send me your address Laura, and I’ll get your package in the mail.

I wanted to do something extra for someone, so Rebecca who had a birthday yesterday is going to get a Japanese knitting and crochet book and a skein of Manos Cotton Stria, since I know she knits.

Everyone else who entered, if you happen to like bookmarks that feature manga versions of Cesare Borgia, e-mail me your address and I’ll send you a couple Cantarella ALA Read Campaign bookmarks while supplies last. 🙂

Thanks to everyone who entered the giveaway, and thanks for reading my blog! 🙂
