Pay It Forward Book Exchange Winner!
It's time to announce the winner of my very first Pay It Forward Book Exchange!

Before I make the announcement, I want to thank each and every one of you for your interest in this concept. I was so excited to see your enthusiasm and I was tickled pink to see others offering books of their own to "pay forward". Thank you all!

Okay, now for the moment you've all been waiting for! The winning name pulled from the hat this morning was Jill at The Diaper Diaries.

Congratulations Jill! Now, I just need you to email me your mailing address so I can get this book, Lucky by Alice Sebold sent out to you. And I'll be touching base with you in about a month to see if you're ready to Pay It Forward by hosting your own book giveaway!

I'd like to bring your attention to the other giveaways that have resulted:

1) Sheryl is giving away a book each week. She's already given away The Storekeeper's Daughter by Wanda E. Brunstetter and The Quilter's Daughter by Wanda E. Brunstetter. Head on over to enter her weekly book giveaway. Thanks, Sheryl!

2) Vail is giving away the book Death of a Garage Sale Newbie by Sharon Dunn on 3 August. You still have chance to enter to win. Thanks, Vail!

3) Carolyn gave away the book Beyond Tuesday Morning by Karen Kingsbury. Thanks, Carolyn!

4) Lorie gave away the book Unchartered by Angela Hunt and I was the lucky winner! Thanks, Lorie! I'll be sure to "Pay It Forward" when I'm done reading your book.

5) mamabright gave away the book Bygones by Kim Vogel Sawyer. Thanks, mamabright!

6) Deena gave away away the book Return to Me by Robin Lee Hatcher. Thanks, Deena!

7) Heather gave away Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers. I've read this book and it's excellent! Thanks, Heather1

8) Lauren gave away 3 Seconds by Lew Parrott, Ph.D.. Thanks, Lauren!

Okay, Oronzo, Snuggle Bug, and I are off to meet some friends at a local farmer's Market. Have a great Saturday, everyone!

Way to go, Jill. I won a book from Sheryl. This is such an awesome way to do a book exchange! While I am waiting to receive my book and get it read, I decided to take a look at my OWN library and "pay it forward" by hosting one as well. The details are at:
