Winners of Virago Giveaways

 
The winner of the random draw for my extra copy of The Lost Traveller by Antonia White is:

 Susan in TX

So email me your mailing address Susan. A little bit of Virago will be heading the Lone Star State.

The cover contest also turned into a random draw since everyone who sent me an email got all four titles correct. It must have been easier than I thought. How did you all do it? What was your technique?

Since Virago have agreed to fulfill the winner of this competition, I decided to pick two winners. Virago will take care of one winner and I will take care of the other. The winners can be found after the images of the mystery covers.





And the two winners out of 21 correct entries are:

Michelle Foong and Karen Librarian

Both of you have one week to email me and let me know which Virago currently in print you would like to have and where it should be sent.

Thanks to all who entered. It was a lot of fun.

  3. Impressive detective work went on! I knew Mrs. Palfrey, and then I saw Jenny Wren on someone else's blog this week, but had no idea how to go about identifying the other two.

  4. Oh. My. God!!! How exciting!! Thanks again for doing this, I'm emailing you with my choice (and my secret method for matching VMC covers).

  5. Thanks for organising this Tom - it was so much fun...I found them via a number of methods - mostly searching Virago on Google via images and also using Librarything's search catalogue.

  6. Oh, wow! Thanks for the great news, Thomas! Very generous of you indeed. Yours was the only Virago Reading Week giveaway I could take part in, as I have not a single green spine in my possession to show for (though I do have a meagre few of the newer Virago editions by Sarah Waters & Emma Donoghue), nor have I the genius or creativity (plus a co-operative & long suffering border collie) of the likes of Roses Over A Cottage Door, to conspire with. Congrats to her for winning the best pic! Undisputable winning entry, indeed :)
    Now, off to pick & choose the latest addition to my little Virago family....

    Thanks again for the contests, Thomas!
