An End, a Beginning, and a WINNER!

It's time to post a celebratory cute cake picture, because the second round of Give the Gift of Reading was a HUGE success!  All in all, we raised $10.05 for the Room to Read Girls' Education Program!  I'm always impressed by how giving and excellent a community the blogging world is but to see so much support, not only for this awesome organization, but for my effort to support them, is truly humbling and I thank everyone who visited, commented, tweeted, and got out the word! I could not have done this without you.

Next, it's time to announce the winner of the comment contest!  The winner, chosen according to random.org, is...Giada M! She's been contacted already, and a big thank you to her and everyone else who commented and entered!
You have to love xkcd. You just do!

Now that October is over and a new month has arrived, what are you all up to? What good books loom on the horizon? Personally, I have to say that I came home from work today, put on my PJs, got in bed, and proceeded to read Drink of Me by Jacquelyn Frank cover to cover (well, start to finish on my Kindle) and it totally blew me away.  Play of Passion by Nalini Singh comes out tomorrow and yeah, I don't have after work plans for then either.

What exciting things are on the horizon?

Play of Passion was in the box I got today but it is in line behind the new J.D. Robb and the new Nora Roberts that finishes the books about the wedding planners. Happy reading!
