Charles Dickens Birthday Giveaway - Winners!

Old-Fashioned Charm

The Charles Dickens Birthday Giveaway has come to an end and it's time to announce the winners!

First I'd like to thank everyone who entered, posted about the giveaway and put the giveaway button on your blogs! 
There were 19 readers who entered with a total of 26 entries.

With so many people entering I wish I could give each of you a prize but I'm happy this time to have three prizes to give away! :)

My sister Bea helped me write your entries on pieces of paper and randomly pick the winners. She did a very good job shaking the box the entries were housed in before picking out three names. Thank you Bea! :)
Now, without further ado here are the winners! 

The winner of the A Charles Dickens Devotional is:


Melody said: "Hooray! How lovely! I would choose the devotional, because it's the one that isn't available at the library. (Do you see how practical I am?) But it would be lovely to have one of the novels!"


The winners of a Charles Dickens Novel of Winner's Choice are:


Linda said: "I believe I'd pick Little Dorrit."

Linda said: Thank you! My daughter is especially excited to read Little Dorrit. We're hoping to see the BBC adaptation after reading the book.

You're welcome! I hope you both really enjoy the book as much as I know you'll enjoy the BBC miniseries!
I'm not going to publish your comment with your address in it. It sounds like you live very near me. I've ordered your book on Amazon and it should arrive on Thursday or Friday. Thank you for entering my giveaway! :)
