I Won a Kindle from FSB!!!!

I am absolutely speechless -- and that rarely happens! Earlier this morning, I received an e-mail from Julie at FSB Associates telling me that I had won their Kindle Giveaway! I am just so excited and I'm really having a hard time expressing how happy I am! I can't wait to actually get my hands on it!

I have worked with FSB over the past year and a half, and they've always been great to work with. For those of you who didn't sign up for this giveaway, check out this wonderful letter that they wrote to honor book bloggers for BBAW:

Thank you, Book Bloggers!

In celebration of Book Blogger Appreciation Week, everyone at FSB Associates would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all book bloggers. We are so very grateful for your time and effort in helping us promote our books and authors. Your contributions to the book publishing industry are truly unquantifiable. Your caring, thoughtful reviews and attention have made so many authors very, very happy.

I thank you on behalf of all of us at FSB for your continued support of books and authors. As a token of our apprecaition, we are giving away a Kindle 2 to one blogger! Enter for your chance to win by clicking here. Please also enter to join our directory of bloggers, which will be online at FSBMedia.com next month and will allow us to give you additional attention and visibility.

Thank you again for your time and energy, and we look forward to working with you in 2010!

Best wishes,
Fauzia Burke

Of course, I want to give a huge thanks to FSB for offering this giveaway (and picking my name!) But I also have to thank my very good friend Kathy, aka BermudaOnion, for bringing this contest to my attention. I was at Disneyworld and she sent me a Twitter Direct Message just to let me know about it -- isn't she a great friend?

As soon as I have a chance to play with my new toy, I'll write a little review to let you know how much I love it! In the meantime, I'll just keep on doing my little "Happy Dance."

You'll have to share how cool it is when you get it. I've only looked at one, never played with it. I look forward to hearing what you think! I'm using a lot of exclaimation points for some reason!!!!

Now that is an exciting win! Now you don't have to choose between the kindle and the sony reader, as you commented on Kathy's post this morning. Congrats to you!

Trust me, you'll LOVE it!

Perhaps you can use your considerable influence to find out how Kindle readers can get ARC's. :) I ADORE my Kindle but would love it more if I could read ARC's, too.
