And the winner of the Catching Fire ARC is...


With a record 212 comments from friends who evidently ALL plan to borrow your prize, you are the winner! Congratulations!*

I have no idea who you are or how you found out about my contest, San, but you clearly love The Hunger Games and are very deserving of the ARC. In order to redeem your prize, I'm going to have to get your address, so please send me an e-mail (check my profile for my info.) with your address, and then begin making the daily run back and forth to the mailbox in nervous and joyful anticipation of your prize.

In all, the contest received 445 comments, which is way more than I ever thought could possibly occur. I was hoping for 10. Ha! I just hope that y'all stick around and continue to read and comment, since that was really my goal.

And in that vain, I'll let it drop here that I'll be at ALA in July and plan to come back armed with another ARC of Catching Fire which I also plan to raffle off through the blog. Next time, however, the rules will be different: no anonymous comments will be accepted and there'll be a quality component (i.e. you will win because I like your story and want you to get the prize, not because you got hundreds of people to post on my blog).

Stay tuned...

* I would also like to note that both Charlotte and Lola also gave really strong showings.


  1. I started following your blog thanks to the contest. I'll be at ALA as well and I'm hoping I can get a copy of Catching Fire there!

  2. -raises hand- I'm still here. I might make an account to formally follow your blog, but I think this may do for now =]

    -still is bitter about missing the ALA in Anaheim last year-

  3. Thank you so so much, Alicia!! Ah, I'm so excited!

  4. What Alexandtite said. Probably will keep following. Go San!

  5. While I plan to keep an eye on your blog, please let me know when you post your giveaway. I'll be sure to mention it on Full to the Brim Kid's book giveaway list. Don't want to miss it and would love to help bring new readers here. Thanks. Janelle @ Brimful Curiosities

  6. Alicia, where/when is the ALA convention?

  7. In response to Anonymous: It's in Chicogo, during...July, I believe.

  8. Yes, ALA is July 9-15 in Chicago. It'll be my first time in attendance, and I'm very excited!
