The contest was held for two months, and now it's over. This of course means there is indeed a winner already -- picked through a randomized drawing. If you want to find out who won.. please watch the video right here!
As for the winner's answer to the giveaway question, "Pick any book you have read that has stayed with you long after you finished it, inspired you, and made an impact in you and your life. What exactly was it about the book that made that happen for you?" it's:
"I have now read Kaye Gibbon's Charms for the Easy Life at least 4 times now. I have loved this book since I first read it a few years ago. I'm now 22 years old and I just love it even more! It's about a group of southern women: mother, daughter, and grandmother. It's all about girl-power and sticking together.
The women are so very different, yet all love each other despite their differences. I laugh, I cry when I read this book, and I relate to their lives. The book inspired me to be proud of my "womanhood." Like the main character, the daughter Margaret, I'm also close to my mother and grandmother. Yet like her, I had to find my own path and make my own life. All the women in this book are strong and proud of their strength, and this book inspired me to be the same."
But that is it for that giveaway! I had such fun reading all of your entries! Thanks everyone! :)
Oh, and just in case you were wondering what song I used, it's Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy by the Andrew Sisters.
