This message appeared in my inbox yesterday morning. Yes, I was a Goodreads Giveaway winner of a copy of this book:

I am not much of a gambler. I don’t buy lottery tickets. When I drive past the highway sign advertising the Powerball  and MegaMillions,  I like to imagine what I’d do with the money if I ever won. Just for the record, last Friday, when I turned in my glitter-covered shamrock, I got a scratch-it lottery ticket. I scratched, but won nothing.

The only real gambling I do is on Goodreads. Sometimes, I like to go into my Goodreads account and click on the Giveaways. I only ever enter giveaways for books I can put in my classroom library. And I never win, until now.

Maybe that shamrock was lucky after all.

    Congratulations! Your post reminded me that I need to revisit the Goodreads Giveaways:) I haven’t done that in a long time!

    Congratulations. It is always a thrill to win something especially when you think your chances are slim. I have never entered a Goodreads Giveaway. I may just have to try it.

    I’ve entered several of these give aways and I, too, actually won a book. How exciting for you!

    Congrats! I wondered if anyone ever actually wins!

    Winning a book makes a day great! Now the exciting part will be the anticipation of the book arriving. Congratulations!

    Congratulations! I’m not much of a gambler either, but to take a chance to win a book- that I will do. I’ll keep entering Goodreads Giveaways.

    I tried to win this book as well – but didn’t win. Enjoy!
