Pym Week Giveaway Winners


Except for the cover contest, the winners were chosen by random draw from all of the people who either commented on My Porch or Fig and Thistle during Pym week or who did a post on their own blog.

Winners, please email me with your mailing addresses. onmyporch [at] hotmail [dot] com

Cover Contest 
We didn't have much of a response to our cover contest so I am especially pleased that the one person who entered made two really great covers. It would have been terrible to give a prize to a bad design. So a Barbara Pym tote bag will be going to  Melwyk at The Indextrious Reader. Incidentally, I didn't read An Unsuitable Attachment until after she submitted her covers. I now know how appropriate the card catalog theme is for this novel.



(There should be an honorable mention for Simon from Stuck-in-a-Book. He made three covers for Some Tame Gazelle, but he submitted after the deadline.)


   
Barbara in the Bodleian by Yvonne Cocking
Mary at Mary's Library will be getting this wonderful newly published book.



The Barbara Pym Cookbook
Miss Bibliophile, whose post on Crampton Hodnet I seemed to have missed in my recaps. Sorry about that.

Tea Towels Times Three
I have three Barbara Pym tea towels to give away. They go to:

Brona Joy at Brona's Books

Non-blogger but big time commentor Susan from TX

Liz at Adventures in full-time self-employment

The Pymnal
This compilation of Pym-related hymns goes to Vicki at Bibliolathas.

  2. Yay! I've exported all the kids for the week, so I don't have anyone to jump up and down with me to celebrate. This means the teapot must be used more frequently (instead of succumbing to the "efficient" electric hot pot) so that we can show off the tea towel. I'm always looking for excuses to slow down the pace of life at our house.
    Thanks so much for letting me participate. I'm going to be hunting out An Unsuitable Attachment as well. Love Melwyk's design!

  3. Congrats to the winners! Even if I had entered before the deadline, Melwyk's design is streets ahead of mine, and she is a worthy winner :)

  5. Oh, lovely! Thank you very much, Thomas. I was fascinated by how she uses quotations and references - they seem to pop out of her characters' mouths so easily, and I gather from others' posts on her own life that this was something she was very good at herself. I shall be interested to see what I have been missing re the hymns, and with any luck I will be able to look them up in the family hymnal (hardly ever opened as we're total heathens) and maybe even try to belt out a couple on the organ (my father's contribution to home decoration - generally a plate or two falls to the ground when the pedalling gets too enthusiastic.) Again - thank you for holding Pym week together for us all. As I said elsewhere, I have a new favourite author.
