While we appreciate your business, we want to announce a winner!

On some obscure level, A Reader's Respite recognizes that our day-job depends on the public buying tickets and flying around the world on airplanes. That is, business-ly speaking, what pays our salary (and ergo, pays for our seemingly insatiable appetite for books).

go home, folks, airplane travel just ain't worth it

That said, on a practical level, you all just need to STAY AT HOME for a while. Your endless travel from one end of the world to the other is keeping A Reader's Respite so busy that we can't even grab two minutes to announce a winner of Rebecca Dean's Palace Circle.

So cut it out and give us a little break here, okay?

Oh, and by the way,

S and H

you won the drawing! Zap us a mailing address via email and we'll package this little bundle up and send it on it's way to you!


  1. Hey, I wish it was me going on the endless trips, but it's not. Congratulations to S and H!

  2. Hey Michele I just wanted you to know that I've given you a blog award and you can check it out here :)


  3. Way to go, winners! And sorry, Michele, but I ain't helping you with your spare time issue. I've spent my entire summer on a damn plane.

  4. Don't blame me--I hate traveling by plane!

  5. Congrats to the winner. I wish I was traveling across the globe...I need a vacation.


Fire away!
