We're Back (Plus, Some Giveaway Winners)!

The Girl and I are back from vacation, and despite being exhausted, we're back to work and school today.  After spending six days in New York City, we met Jerry in CT to visit with my family (my 19-month-old nephew is absolutely gorgeous!) and some friends for two days before heading to MA for my brother-in-law's wedding.  We flew home yesterday morning, and I spent the entire day napping and doing laundry.

I hope to be back to blogging tomorrow, but I'm sure it'll take me several days to catch up with you all.  I'm still awaiting the books I shipped from BEA, so you'll see those in my next Mailbox Monday post, and I hope to post all about our trip later this week.  I really enjoyed being unplugged for the entire trip, but you can imagine the avalanche of e-mails that hit me this morning!

In the meantime, I probably should announce the winners of the giveaways that ended right before I went away.



Sandra K321 is the lucky winner of Letter to My Daughter by George Bishop.



Debi and Mystica are the lucky winners of On Folly Beach by Karen White.



I've passed your addresses on to the publicists, so you should receive your books shortly.  Congratulations and happy reading!

Now I'm counting the hours until I can go home and crash on the couch...

Welcome back, Anna! If only they had postponed BEA for a couple of months, I could have attended. It sounds like great fun!

Congrats to the lucky winners. :)

I'm sad I missed meeting you but will hope for another in person blogger event opp sometime in the future. I do think you and Serena need to come up to Boston for the Oct Book Fair, yes?! :)

It was so nice to see you again! And meeting T.G. this year was a special treat. :-)

Thanks again for meeting up with me for dinner. Sitting and chatting for a while was a great way to start off the week!

Hi Anna...Thanks for posting the review about Lotus. Hope all is well! Welcome back. I hope to return soon. :)

Bookfool said...

Welcome back, Anna! I reviewed A Hundred Feet Over Hell, while you were away. I hope you like it as much as I did! :)

Anna said...

Thanks, everyone! I'm still exhausted and suspect I will be until I get a chance to nap this weekend. I'm starting to get back in the swing of things, but it'll be awhile before I'm all caught up.

Amanda: It was great to meet you, too!

Sandy: The wedding went great! I told me brother-in-law he did good. ;)

Care: I'd love to visit Boston again, but I'm not sure I'll be able to get there in Oct. :(

OnlinePublicist: Oh, The Girl totally loved you! Dinner was so much fun, aside from me making a big mess. LOL

wisteria: I hope you return soon, too. :)

Bookfool: I'll have to check out that review soon. I'm really behind in blog reading. I have to get back to reading that book. I didn't think it was a vacation read, so I left it behind. I didn't read at all while I was gone. :(
