EDIT #4 (1:22 pm): Bethany called me back. She picked hers over the phone. Amy’s turn!
EDIT #3 (1:07 pm): Hello, Bethany’s at a week-long youth conference. She won’t be responding anytime soon. Amy, if you’re there, go ahead and pick your book!
EDIT #2 (7:32 am): Okay, it’s Bethy’s turn. I’d call her, but she’s probably not up yet. She and Stew are more night owls than early birds. We’re off to the zoo (shocker) to meet some friends. I’ll check in after lunch. Have a great day!
EDIT: (10:20 pm) Still waiting on Holly… I know it’s 3am (or whatever) there, Hols, but come on! Don’t you Europeans know we Americans hate to wait? Chop, chop! As for me and my children, we are heading to bed!
So, I wrote out the first 40ish of your names on slips of paper and said, “Forget this!” I went to random.org, told them I needed 5 integers randomly generated from 104, and you can see the results below. I thought about making you go through the comments and count yourselves, but my goodness, how rude would that be?! So, without further ado…
1st place–#81 Megan from Danville, Indiana (5 books)
2nd place–#55 Terri from Kentucky (4 books)
3rd place–#45 Holly from France (3 books)
4th place–#96 Bethany from Ohio (2 books)
5th place–#11 Amy Wyatt from Georgia (1 book)
Congratulations, ladies! I don’t know how to contact Megan, so Megan, if you could leave me a comment, we’ll get started. Megan will pick 5 books. When she’s done, Terri picks 4. And so on. Each winner has the option of choosing ONE of my books as part of their stash. So, even if Megan picks one, Terri could still pick it, and so on.
