Kirk and Hwu giveaway over, 29 countries represented

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The giveaway is over, and I want to thank all of you who send in email entries. The response was tremendous, with nearly 400 people mailing in and “raising their hand” for the book. One thing that was unexpected: just how international the entries were. We had entries from at 29 countries just going by country extensions and snail mail addresses in .sigs (sorry, I’m not counting Texas as a separate country), but many of you use Gmail so there could have been even more countries represented. Serbia, Greece, and Pakistan surprised me, and I was also surprised at how many submissions we had from Spain and France — hola and bonjour to our readers in those countries.

I have sent an email off to the winner, and as soon as he acknowledges it I’ll post his name and get the book out to him. If I haven’t heard back by the weekend, we’ll go on to an alternate selection.

If you didn’t win this time, fret not friends! I have a stack of a dozen books to review, and a commitment to get through them in the next 4 months, so there will be many more giveaways to come.
