Winners of the Bumper Birthday Stack Giveaway 2019 Announced

Thanks for all of the birthday wishes and to everyone who helped me celebrate by entering my Bumper Birthday Stack Giveaway 2019 last week. Looking at the stats (approximately 100 entries), the most popular book in the giveaway was The Librarian of Auschwitz by Antonio Iturbe.

This was equalled by an astonishing 18% of entrants who selected the ‘Surprise Me’ option. I included this for a lark one year and was amazed when the winner was a ‘surprise me’. I’d be too nervous to let others choose for me, but it appears many of you are adventurous and daring in your reading and I ought to take note. Now down to bookish birthday business.

I was inspired to draw two winners again this year, and (drum roll):

Lobroo won Eleanor’s Secret by Caroline Beecham
Kathryn won Home Fires by Fiona Lowe

A hearty congratulations Lobroo & Kathryn! I’ll be sending you each an email shortly with the details.

I’m looking forward to bringing you a children's picture book giveaway soon with a chance to win a copy of Dig, Dump, Roll by Sally Sutton, illustrated by Brian Lovelock. If you want to see giveaway dates as soon as they're locked in, you can check my Giveaways page.

Would you like to comment?

  1. Thank you so much Tracey. I love surprises too but I just couldn't resist Eleanor's Secret and I'm thrilled I will now have my own copy. Love getting gifts from the Birthday Girl! Thanks to Allen & Unwin too.

  2. That's exciting, Tracey - thank you!!

    I'm like you, and couldn't let someone else pick for me - apart from anything else, I already own Eleanor's Secret! I hope you enjoy it, Mrs B - I still haven't read it yet!

    I'm looking forward to Home Fires after reading and loving my first Fiona Lowe at the beginning of the year - Birthright.

  3. You're very welcome Mrs B, and I'm sure you'll love Eleanor's Secret. Did you see the message from the author on Twitter? She hopes you enjoy it too :-)

    Congratulations to you too Kathryn, I'm glad to know you're a kindred spirit, heheh. If you enjoyed Birthright I'm sure you'll love Home Fires too.
