NEWSLETTER CONTEST – Winner of #2, and Challenge #3

If you recall, the challenge for Contest #2 was to put 5 books from the current Top 50 list of Wished-for books in descending order of the number of copies of each posted and swapped in the month of September, 2010.  The correct order was The Help > Dead in the Family > House Rules > The Omnivore’s Dilemma > The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest. And the lucky winner, chosen at random from the correct answers, is…Jennie B. (janeite)!  She gets 10 Book Credits.   Happy reading, Jennie!

This month’s Challenge – Answer these questions about Christmas in literature:

(1) Who found a stolen jewel hidden in Christmas dinner?

(2) Who got a dress with stylish sleeves for a special Christmas present?

(3) What bestselling humorist wrote about Dutch Christmas traditions in his fifth book of humor essays?

(4) What classic Irish novella set at Christmastime ends with the main character standing and watching the snow falling?

Each member may submit one entry (answering all four questions).  Guesses can be sent in a Personal Message to Gamester. (Please note: guesses sent in by any other means – email, feedback, PM to any account but Gamester- will not count and will be discarded.) The winner will be chosen randomly from all of the correct answers submitted by the time the next Newsletter goes to press, and the winner will be announced in the next Newsletter.
