I didn't make a video of Cliff drawing the two winning names this time because I had him draw while he was still in bed, half-asleep. You'll just have to trust me that it was a fair and square drawing.
When I'm doing something like this, I can't help but root for people I know in real life, or people who have been blogging buddies for years. Root as I might, neither of these winners are people I can say I "know" in any way, except that one has been a reader for a long time. That would be Vikki. Not Vicki, but Vikki. She entered just yesterday evening by email, so I have her contact address and hopefully she will soon learn she's a winner.
My other winner is someone I've never seen or heard of commenting here, Lisa from California. I notice she has a blog with some very fattening and yummy recipes; she and Ree should get along just fine!
Lisa, I emailed you, thanks to the fact that you have a profile that includes your email address.
Vikki (also from California), you deserve this prize, bless your heart. You've been reading and commenting on this blog for a long time.
I'll try to get your books in the mail in the next couple of days. And remember, I wouldn't have been having this giveaway if Ree hadn't sent me the books.
