Last week, we reviewed I Told My Soul to Sing: Finding God with Emily Dickinson, published by Paraclete Press. And we offered a giveaway of a copy of the book.
The winner of the giveaway was selected strictly by random. We had a total of 29 comments (one comment was left on another Tweetspeak post). So I dutifully numbered small slips of paper 1 to 29, mixed them all up in a paper bag, shook it two or three times to make sure they were distributed—and pulled out number 7.
And the seventh comment on the post was by Linda Chontos, blogging at Linda’s Patchwork Quilt. Linda, if you will send me (firstname.lastname@example.org) a mailing address, I will zip the copy of I Told My Soul to Sing off in the mail right away.
Congratulations, Linda—and thanks to all who left a comment. Emily, dressed in white, would be pleased—but she wouldn’t come from behind the door to say thank you in person. As the good townspeople of Amherst often said, she was “eccentric.”
