Who Says Lightning Doesn't Strike Twice?



A few months ago I won the monthly subscribers prize from Good Reading Magazine. Naturally I was thrilled. I'd been subscribing since the magazine started. Early on I'd hoped to win, but as the years passed and I never did win and I forgot about it. Then 10 years of subscribing paid off, and I won the subscribers draw in November and got a wonderful box of books from Fremantle Press.

You can't imagine how surprised I was to receive a SECOND letter a mere 3 months later to say that I'd won the subscribers prize AGAIN! Nothing for 10 years then twice in 3 months! I have even more Good Reading stacking up ahead of me.

Women of Note by Rosalind Appleby
Equator by Wayne Ashton
Spider Lies by Jen Banyard
Spinner by Ron Elliott
The Moving World by Michael Heald
A Sausage Went for a Walk by Ellisha Majid and Peter Kendall
Not Drowning, Reading by Andrew Relph
Dress Rehearsal by Zoe Thurner

I'm not expecting a third, but would be more than happy to be proven wrong.

Saturday Snapshot, is a wonderful weekly meme from at home with books

You are a favored one after 10 years. Congratulations.
A Sausage Went for a Walk and Not Drowning, Reading-I will read them first because of the titles.
