Ann Moony is the winner of the audio version of High Country or a book of her choice from last year's offerings. Ann please contact me at bhansen22 at msn dot com by Tuesday Jan. 5 to give me your mailing address and to let me know which prize you have selected.
The new contest begins today. Leave a comment at the end of this blog and/or sign up as a follower to be eligible for a drawing to win a free book. Each time you comment on one of my blogs between now and January 15 you will receive another chance to win. Any book I reviewed on Meridian last year, and some from previous years, can be your prize (unless already claimed by a previous winner).
Newspapers, magazines, and television channels are full of year end wrap-ups of the best and worst of 2009, so I propose we do the same for LDS fiction. If anyone wants to do a top and bottom ten, okay, but I'm only going to ask for a top three best. I hope everyone got their Whitney nominations in, if not you're too late. Anyway I think it's safe now to ask which three novels by LDS authors published in 2009 did you enjoy most? I'm also going to ask which LDS novel is your all-time favorite? I seldom agree with anyone else's top ten best or worst dressed, movies, news stories, books, photoes, etc. and I don't expect we'll all agree on the three best LDS novels, but it should be fun to recap which novels left a lasting impact on someone.
And speaking of favorites, this is my favorite photoes taken this Christmas. The little angel is my eight-year-old granddaughter and Mary is my nine-year-old granddaughter.
