Giveaway Winners and a Penn State Weekend!

Hi, everyone! Hope you're enjoying the last little bit of your weekend! I know that I definitely had a good one. I have a lot of giveaway winners to announce but first, I wanted to share a little bit of my weekend.

This weekend found me in State College, PA, home of Penn State. My husband is a very proud Nittany Lion and I've learned to love the place from him. I went to college in a very suburban area and while I loved college (oh yes, I really, really loved college), I think I would have loved going to somewhere that had more of a college town vibe. Penn State has just that and I love visiting!

 My husband got invited back to Penn State to speak at a career fair so while he was busy being productive, I was staying busy relaxing. Based on a recommendation from some friends that still live in the area, I decided to check out Webster's, which (perhaps unsurprisingly) is a bookstore. It's in the basement of a building right down town and it is wonderful. It has a little cafe and tons and tons of used books.

I sat with a cappuccino and read a book for quite awhile and it was absolutely amazing.


I also treated myself to a couple books. All of the books were 50% off of what were already some great prices. I got The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck and Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie.

I had an absolutely lovely weekend!

And now I have a ton of giveaway winners to announce:

Under the Wide and Starry Sky:

Tyringham Park:

Real Happy Family:

Hi! Welcome to A Bookish Affair. If you leave a comment, I will try to either reply here or on your site!

As of 6/6/2011, this book is now an awards free zone. While I appreciate the awards, I would rather stick to reviewing more great books for you than trying to fill the requirements.
