Giveaway: Traveling to London

Yesterday's Winners:
Loren Eaton won The Road by Cormac McCarthy.
(Loren, email me with your address.)
avisannschild won the first Just Because prize for commenting on my review of St. Lucy's Home for Girls Raised by Wolves.

Today's giveaway is a set of three books to help you travel to London. You may remember from yesterday that each of the daily giveaways will be in honor of a fellow blogger.  This set of books is in honor of Cindy Pon, whose debut novel Silver Phoenix will be released in May 2009. Cindy and her fam spent the holidays in London, and she posted all sorts of fun reports about her trip.

  22. Ooh. I love London. I visited there once, and plan to go back again. Enter me please. And now, because I'm tired of making boring repetitive comments, a joke (best when read aloud):

    Mahatma Gandhi walked barefoot everywhere, to the point that his feet became quite thick and hard. He also was quite a spiritual person. Even when he was not on a hunger strike, he did not eat much and became quite thin and frail. Due to this diet, he wound up with very bad breath. Therefore, he came to be known as a . . .

    Super calloused fragile mystic plagued with halitosis.

    Thank you. Thank you very much. I'm here all week.
