Okay, you want me to tell you who won the prizes, right? Here are our winners:
Lady_Gwenne is our first place winner, and gets to choose between Isle of Fire by Wayne Thomas Batson, Raising Dragons by Bryan Davis, DragonSpell by Donita K. Paul, and Beyond the Reflection’s Edge by Bryan Davis.
Our three randomly-drawn winners are Pip, swordsman135, and Sloan.
After Lady_Gwenne has made the first choice, our three random winners can post their choices from the three remaining books. We’re going on a first come, first served basis, so speak up if you are a winner!
All winners, please post your choice here, and then send a private message to me with the address you want your book shipped to. Make sure you have your parents’ permission to give us your address. We promise we won’t sell it or give it to anybody except the author who will be sending the book to you.
Thanks for participating, everybody, and thanks for helping to make this the biggest Read-a-Thon yet!September 3, 2008 at 8:43 pm #43322

ROFL @ Pip!September 4, 2008 at 4:01 pm #43332
Good Job everybody!! Nice Video..loved the sound effects. I think next year we need like $5 t-shirts that say ‘Incredibooks read-a-thon 2009′!
Great job Lady_Gwenne!!! (and the other three winners, whom their luckiness won them great books!)September 4, 2008 at 4:03 pm #43333
Hey, T-shirts are a great idea! We’ll keep that in mind. I’m already mulling over ideas for next year.September 4, 2008 at 4:08 pm #43334
maybe someone should make them on cafepress.com then whoever wants one can buy it from them. But their t-shirts are thin and rather cheap, so maybe notSeptember 4, 2008 at 5:10 pm #43335
I do have an account on Zazzle.com for another project, and they make higher quality products. The shirts would probably be more like $15 or $20, though.
