Contest Wrap-Up

Two days, two contests. Both were a lot of fun, I think, and I hope to do a few more in the same vein. I started doing a bit of research yesterday on one that I’m sure is going to be unique and hopefully a little more difficult than the last ones.

Book Cover Contest

I thought I was being tricky yesterday with the “Book Cover” contest, but it seems that many people had little difficulty correctly identifying each of the book covers. Fully 54 people submitted a correct list. Those who got tripped up, tended to miss #2 or #19. Of those who got them all correct, I randomly selected Brett Maragni as the winner of the gift certificate.
