BBAW 2010 winners for the Unexpected Treasures post and their respective wins are as follows:

Gautami of Everything Distils Into Reading won A Dangerous Affair by Caro Peacock.  She said, “There are so many good bloggers, who have influenced my reading. I really can’t name a handful…”

Dovile won Short Girls by Bich Minh Nguyen.  She said, “I’ve discovered Reading Teen blog this year, and Lauren Kate’s books with it!”

Jill of Rhapsody in Books won The Widow’s Season by Laura Brodie.  She said, “I would have to say that I have read the most books because of the blogs of Sandy of You Gotta Read This!  and Nymeth of Things Mean A Lot.  When they *both* rave about a book, then I know  for sure I’ll be knocked out by it too, and that was certainly the case with Fingersmith by Sarah Waters.  But in truth, WAY over half of my reading selections now come from the recommendations of fellow bloggers.  I just keep a notepad and pen in front of the computer!”

BBAW 2010 winners for the my start of BBAW post and their respective wins are as follows:

Mette J (Mysteriousrose) won the $10 Better World Books gift certificate.  She said, “What a great site I love writing poems, heres what I got from the site:

The sun disappears
And a flock of birds
Crosses the pink sky”

Grace of Books Like Breathing won the $10 Amazon.com gift certificate.  She said, “I’m terrible at poetry but here’s my try at it:

Nothings speedier than a cheetah,
In a rush it’d surely beat ya’,
As hard as you’d try
To make your feet fly
By the end of the race it’d eat Velveeta!”

Congrats to all the winners.
