Winners: The Scorpio Races!

Finally, here are the winners of my Scorpio Races giveaway.

I apologize for the delay, I know you guys have been waiting for this, but I’ve had a lot to catch up on at work and I’ve resumed my tutoring (5 times a week) after the holidays, so before I knew it, January came, and is now nearly over!

Also, choosing the winners (for the non-raffle part) was tough. I don’t normally hold giveaways where I have to choose the winner because it’s never easy to pick out a winner out of all the entries. I usually get Randomizer to keep it well, random, but for this particular giveaway, I thought a thematic question was more significant given the themes of the novel.

So anyway, on to the winners!

Each set contains the books Looking Back, Dirty Dancing and Death by Garrote.

Giveaway: Looking Back!

Squee — Ambeth Ocampo featured my Looking Back post on his Facebook page (special thanks to Jzhun and Marie for pointing it out to me). That made my day, so I’m sharing some love! Here’s a new giveaway:  a three-book set of Looking Back (volumes 1-3: Looking Back, Dirty Dancing, Death by Garrote), which I reviewed in my last post.

UPDATE: Am now giving away two sets on Sunday, thank you Anvil Publishing (through Ms. Gwenn Galvez) for pledging another set!

Each book is a compilation of historian Ambeth Ocampo’s essays on Philippine history and culture — some from his out of print books Looking Back, Aguinaldo’s Breakfast, Mabini’s Ghost, and Luna’s Mustache, and some recent selections from his weekly newspaper column.

And the winner is (My Deathly Hallows Giveaway)…

Thank you to all those who joined my Deathly Hallows Giveaway! I received 45 entries in total, and using a random list generator, I assigned random  numbers to all the giveaway entries.

I was supposed to post this tomorrow, but I’ve got a health book discussion (and a bikram yoga session) with my book club, Flips Flipping Pages, so I decided to announce the winners tonight.
