Hooray, I won softdrink's contest!!! She had a contest to see who could guess how many earrings she puts in each ear. And I won! Woohoo!! I never win anything, this is so exciting! (Well ok, there was that one time when I was twelve and I won a hotel stay in Florida...we were already visiting Florida at the time so it was of no use, what are the odds of that? Oh and I won a dvd player from a site called the Geckoplex, but we never got it to work...we gave it away for parts...the person we gave it to got it working, though, so at least somebody got something out of it!)
Anyway, the prize in this contest was the winner's choice from a selection of six books. I chose I Capture The Castle by Dodie Smith.
I hadn't actually heard of this book before Jill's contest, but it sounds wonderful and lighthearted and I think it will make a great summer read!
