Wow, what a week!
Nearly 100 of you threw your names in for the House Lust Giveaway. I loved reading all of your creative, funny, and heartfelt comments. I truly wish I could send a copy of this book to every single one of you!
Daniel McGinn, the author of the book, contacted me after finding this site and reading all of your enthusiastic responses to House Lust. He generously offered to send an autographed copy to the winner. How cool is that? I’m still giving one away, too, so the signed copy will be the 1st prize. And the winners are . . .
FIRST PRIZE: Amanda
SECOND PRIZE: Craig
Congratulations, Amanda and Craig! And thanks to everyone who took the time to stop by and enter the contest. I hope you’ll keep coming back! You’ve helped this blog get off to a great start. I’m amazed that after only two weeks in the blogosphere, Hooked on Houses has had over 2,000 visitors.
In case you missed it: here’s the original post that included my review of the book and an announcement of the new “House Lust Fan Club” (I have been named the unofficial president by the author. Check out what my first order of business will be!).
Here’s what NPR had to say about House Lust (includes excerpt from the book).
