On 1/29/12, I blogged a book review of SWEET STUFF by Donna Kauffman, and I hosted a SUGAR RUSH book giveaway too .
Picking the winner was a complicated process and not at all scientific.
I printed out all eligible comments.
After folding the printed sheets, I put each paper inside one plastic heart, and then I filled said heart with a few (five) chocolate gold coins. To be fair, all plastic hearts were the same color, red.
I placed these hearts into a reusable store sack.
Shaking the bag up then down and side to side before swooshing it around, I made six spins around the room.
My trusty assistant, who is seven years old and who has helped me on a previous giveaway, put his hand into the bag and pulled out a heart.
This assistant opened the heart and took out all the gold coins. Then he handed the folded paper over to me.
I immediately handed it off to the adult witness for the grand announcement . . .
And the winner is: Na S.
Na S., you will receive an email providing instructions on how to collect your book.
****I feel obligated to impart that my assistant did receive payment for his services (stuffed crust pizza for lunch), but he was under no obligation to pick any one heart.****
