Giveaway Winner of (signed) Because of Winn-Dixie

I know many of you have read this beautiful story, which makes me all the more I honored to give away this signed copy of Because of Winn-Dixie. And, if you've been around my blog for any of my other giveaways, you know my daughter takes enormous delight in choosing the giveaway winner from folded up pieces of paper in a brown paper lunch sack. The name she drew from the sack today is . . .

Email your mailing address to barbarawatson94(at)gmail(dot)com
so I can get this little beauty to you.

Also . . . just so you know I didn't draw some swoopy loops on the title page, this is how Kate signs her books--isn't it awesome?

And if that isn't enough awesomeness for your day, Because of Winn-Dixie is one of the books for giveaway on World Book Night!! I signed up to be a book-giver and Because of Winn-Dixie was my first choice (with Hunger Games and The Book Thief as my second and third choices). I'm hoping, hoping to be selected as a book-giver. What could be more wonderful than changing a non-reader's life by putting a BOOK in their hands??!!? Interested yourself? Here's the website (again) in case you missed it up there: World Book Night.


  1. Congrats to Margo! Now, as promised, I'll go to the bookstore and buy a paperback to read.

    I heard about World Book Night and was considering signing up. Who do you give the 20 copies to? Do they handle that?

    1. I'll be checking on you, Joanne, to make sure you read it. :-)

      When you fill out the application for World Book Night, you are asked to tell where/how/to whom you would distribute the books, so you need to figure out how you'd get them to light or non-readers.

    2. Ah, I see. Thanks! I checked out that website and there are 30 titles to choose from, most of which are adult titles of course. I would go for Hunger Games. My younger son attended a school for kids with learning differences. That book might be perfect for them!

      And I'll be buying Because of Winn-Dixie on Tuesday. Count on it.

  2. Congrats Margo!
    I'm really happy you won... even though I wanted that copy pretty bad ;)


Comments. Yay! They're almost as good as chocolate. Almost.
