Winners Galore

I have chosen the winners of my English Lady book giveaway.

As promised, Simon T got first dibs on Provincial Lady. He chose the dust-jacketed version with the colorful cover.

Then choosing randomly:

Tessa Just Read gets the other Provincial Lady.

Birdie gets Someone at a Distance.

Amanda gets Crampton Hodnet.

But wait! I decided two people could use some book assistance:

For living on the other side of world and not having good access to books that interest her, Mystica gets an extra copy I have of an old Virago edition of South Riding.

Daniel-Halifax will get something off the MyPorch shelves once he emails me and lets me know what kinds of fiction he can't get in Milan. I know, poor baby has to live in Milan. But I remember once paying an ungodly amount for a pulp edition of The Razor's Edge in Rome so I don't want him to go without sustenance. In your email to me just let me know what kind of books you like but can't find.

So to all you winners, send me an email giving me your mailing address.  onmyporch [at] hotmail [dot] com.

And don't forget about my Anita Brookner giveaway. You have until April 15th to sign up for that one.


  1. Thank you ever so much for this Thomas! Obviously you read my snippets and groans about the availability of English books!! Thanks ever so much for this.

  2. Thomas I think you get the award for "sharing the book love." Kudos to you for your generosity!

  3. *squeeeeebles*
    Thank you so much, Thomas! I'm ever so excited!
    Congrats to all the other winners as well!
    Also, you are made of win for considering the difficulty of others who can't get hold of good English fic!

  4. Thank you so much, Thomas! My address coming via email. I'm on a bit of a old lady-ish reading kick: I've recently read Hugh Walpole's Old Ladies and Vita Sackville-West's All Passion Spent. This will fit in my theme nicely.

  5. Big hugs to you, Thomas, for sending Mystica a book. She will treasure it I'm sure. And I have an ILL request in at the library for a copy of Fraud by Brookner, it sounds wonderful...looking forward it!

  6. Thomas, you rock (but you probably already know this).

  7. I really can't believe how genteel you are! And it's such an odd coincidence that I just finished reading 'The Razor's Edge' (from home, certo) the other day! I'll email you post haste!!
