… and the winner is …

I know you’ve spent all weekend wondering who has won my giveaway, but I wanted to build the suspense a little. Sorry, but there’s not much else exciting happening around here, seeing as I’m in the middle of another translation and haven’t left the house for days. Normally I’m out skydiving, bungy jumping, fire eating, wrestling with wild animals* and all that sort of thing, as anyone who knows me will attest, but for the past few days I’ve had to get my thrills vicariously via the internet. 

Anyway, thanks to the lovely folk at Kodansha who have made the giveaway possible, now someone else gets a thrill too. The thrill of getting to make things like FELT ANIMALS!! Can’t get a lot more thrilling than that!! (Bungy jumping is a bore in comparison, plus it requires more equipment!) So without further ado, I’m going to announce the winner… 


… well, maybe after I thank you all for entering and make you have another look at this supercute cover… 

Anyway, so drum roll for the winner… it’s Magdalena! Yay! 

Please let me state now that it was not me who chose the winner, it was the team at Kodansha (which is the company that publishes the book). I knew it would be too hard for me to make the decision so I handballed it to them. I’m thinking of getting them to handle all of my life’s difficult decisions from now on. What to wear? Should I have that extra bit of chocolate? Should I watch just one more episode of Glee instead of looking for paid employment? Why tire myself out thinking about that sort of thing? I’ll just ask Kodansha. 



*I bet you thought I was joking about the wrestling with wild animals, but Suki can really put up a fight when she doesn’t want cuddles!! Look at that grumpy little face!
