In My Mailbox (2) + Winners

In My Mailbox is a meme began by The Story Siren.

In terms of receiving books this was a very good week. I'm especially relieved the Bouissou finally arrived.

Where Nina Lies by Lynn Weingarten (ARC and hardcover)
The Dust of 100 Dogs by A.S. King
Japan: The Burden of Success by Jean-Marie Bouissou (textbook)
Don't Judge a Girl by Her Cover by Ally Carter
Geektastic ed. by Holly Black and Cecil Castellucci

The VOG (Very Odd Gift) wrapping looks very similar to the wrapping style my school uses for condoms. It made me do a double-take when I opened the D100D package. I just included the rose condom in the photo because I think it's cute.
(Note: I have no current need for condoms. But they pass them out free and my tuition includes three condoms a day. If I'm paying for it I'm taking it whether I need it or not.)

Now what ya'll really want to know . . . the winners!

Valentine's Contest
IN TOO DEEP ARCs go to: donnas and Paradox
The $20 Amazon GC goes to: Diana Dang

Ranger's Apprentice Contest
THE SIEGE OF MACINDAW ARC goes to: Erika Lynn*
*Erika Lynn already has a copy, so the new winner is olympianlady! Unsurprising - probability was on her side with 27 entries.
