Winner Announced

Remember last Monday, I hosted a contest?
And the prize was an almost-100-year-old book of Grimm's fairy tales?
Well, I have a winner to announce.

Using randomnumbergenerator,
Dawn Hullender
has been selected as the new owner of an ancient book!
Congrats Dawn!

Thanks so much, guys, for being awesome.
I sincerely wish I had an antique book for each of you.

And, just because so many of you asked about the book's origins, let me just say--I've only owned it for a few years, and the person who parted with it, parted with it for very little.

Oh my god! Dawn! You are soooo lucky!!! ^.^ I'm so happy for you! Congrats!!!!!

Have fun with it! ^.^

This book has been circulating for 100 years. Can you even imagine where it has been? Who bought it? Where did it go after that? The first owner can't be alive anymore, but what about their children? or grandchildren? or great grandchildren? Who sold them the book? Where did they buy it from?
who did it go through to make it into your hands?

^.^ Thinking about that kind of stuff is pretty fun ^.^

But really! Congratz!
