Books won in drawings from my blogger friends

I won two books from two different blogger friends in book drawings. I had entered just for the heck of it. It was amazing that I won two books in the span of few days and I received both the books today.

1) Murder on the Menu edited by Peter Haining, is a collection of stories of Crimes and Mystery. This I won from Dewey. You can check out BAFAB drawing winners.

2) My Mother's Garden: A collection About Love, Flowers and Family in the form of esaays, stories and poems by writing gardeners and gardening writers. I won this from Sioux. Please do check out And the winner is... where she shows the actual drawing of my name.

I am thrilled to bits and the next few days are going to be interesting reading these two books along with others. I am so glad that both the books are so varied in subject. I will try to write reviews as soon as I finish reading these books and post those on My Own Little Reading Room.

I enjoy your blog so have such a beautiful way with words. Your comment "The most difficult thing in this world is to win against yourself", resonates so deeply with me and describes my biggest life challenge in one sentence! I will visit your blog often...thank you again.

Gautami! You've just won a copy of my book when it comes out next year. Congratulations! No, don't thank me yet, just promise to read it. And promise to write one of your wonderful reviews if you love it or write about a different book if hated it and put the name of my book in its place. Example: I loved War and Peace (insert Chinatown Angel) = I loved Chinatown Angel.

Hi Gautami. I hope you're having a wonderful week.

Congratulations on these two richly deserved honors. I believe in my heart of hearts that good things happen to good people. You've just proven this.
