I won a giveaway!!!

One of my favorite book blogs is Bitches with Books. This is one of the blogs I've been reading since I started blogging and I love her snark and honesty when it comes to reviewing books. Plus she is as big of a Potterhead as I am and you should all check out her Letter to Dumbledore. Hi-larious!

I digress, Claire recently celebrated her one year blogoversary where she decided to reward her followers for enjoying her awesomeness. Does this sound backwards? I'm assuming she did the giveaway because she loves her followers as much as they love her (and she wanted to share her favorite books with us) but either way, I submitted my name. And guess what? (I know I already gave it away but...) I WON!

I won a copy of Mr. Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore.


This book has been on my to-read list for awhile. A couple of the blogs I read reviewed it and it sounded interesting. Now, thanks to Claire, I have my very own copy. I can't wait to read it and don't fret, I promise I'll share my review. Have y'all read it? What did you think? I've included the goodreads summary (which I don't think does it justice) below for any of you who are interested but have not heard of this book yet. Yay for winning things!
