Bloggy Giveaways – What I got

The Bloggy Giveaways Carnival hosted by Shannon wrapped up last week but I am still reeling with the results. There were 890 blogs giving away stuffs!

Things I won:

Other prizes I won in other contests, not related to the Bloggy Giveaways carnival:

  • A copy of the books Four Wives and How Big is Your God courtesy of Sarah at Puss Reboots.
  • $25 from Thompson outdoors blog (I joined via my other blog)
  • A copy of The Sky Isn’t Visible from Here by Felicia C. Sullivan from Mother Talk. Not exactly a prize but I got the book for free and will post a review here soon.

Did you join the Bloggy Giveaways carnival? Did you win anything?

UPDATE: Bloggy giveaway winner

Today will be the last drawing date of most of the bloggy giveaways ran at Rocks in my Dryer for one week last week. What a massive carnival it was with more than 800 bloggers participating and giving away stuffs! I have entered in the contests here and there, however, very limited because majority of the contest post says, “for US addresses only”.

I got an overwhelming response to my own little giveaway with more than 500 comments. Thanks to everyone who participated and left a message mentioning their favorite books. I have added some of it in my Amazon wishlist.

Popular authors:

  • Jane Austen
  • Jodi Picoult
  • J.K. Rowling
  • James Patterson
  • Karen Kingsbury

 Popular titles:

  • To Kill a Mockingbird
  • Pride and Prejudice
  • Little Women
  • The Bible!
  • Gone with the Wind

I already chose the winner with the help of random.org and have contacted her. I’ll post the name here once I get the reply and confirm that she’s still interested with the prize! (For security reasons, I did not include the gift certificate code in my email to her and will only do that once I get a response.)

Congratulations to Beth who said she loves anything by Jane Austen. I hope the certificate will help you purchase a good Jane Austen book, Beth!

It was a great carnival and it was a fun way to discover new blogs to add to my feed reader. I sure will be participating again in the future.
