And the Winners are...

First, let's go over what the winner of the Tudor Book Blog Reading Challenge 2012 will receive...

Copies of: The Secret Keeper by Sandra Byrd, Pale Rose of England by Sandra Worth, The Tudors: The Complete Story of England's Most Notorious Dynasty by G.J. Meyer, Dissolution by C.J. Samson, and The Tudor Secret by C.W. Gortner.  
A Henry VIII and Six Wives magnet set, an 8 pack of "All My Tudors" post cards, All Goodly Sports: Music of Henry VIII - a CD of 34 songs composed by Henry VIII and performed by modern players and singers, a Tudor rose wax seal stamp, and an Anne Boleyn "B" necklace (or whichever letter you prefer).

Wow! That's a lot. 

Here's how I calculated the results. As I said in the original post, I randomly drew a winner from those who completed their goal. I took the names and mixed them up, then listed them 1-8. I then used random.org to randomly generate a number.

1. Jen - (Princess) 12 reviews
2. Erin I. - (Lowly Page) 1 review
3. Lady Heather Crouse - (Lady of the Court) 7 reviews
4. Eliza N. - (Knight) 5 reviews
5. Bridgett (The Tudor Cafe) - (Lady of the Court) 9 reviews
6. Lisa (sororitylifearmywife.blogspot.com) - (Lowly Page) 4 reviews
7. Mer - (Knight) 5 reviews
8. Jasmine M-P. - (Lady in Waiting) 10 reviews

Now, for the moment you've been waiting for all year, the winner of the Tudor Book Blog Reading Challenge 2012, and the Tudor Prize Pack is...

Bridgette from The Tudor Cafe (#5)

Congrats to Bridgette on winning the Tudor Book Blog Reading Challenge Prize Pack!

For our second winner, we will recognize the competitor who read the most books. They will receive a copy of The Tudor Secret by C.W. Gortner as well as an Anne Boleyn "B" necklace (or which ever letter they prefer).

And the winner is...

Jen read 12 books for this competition. Wow! I'm pretty impressed :)

Great job to all the entries! Be sure to enter the Tudor Book Blog Reading Challenge 2013 for another chance to enter to win Tudor related prizes in the coming year.

Things will be a little different this go around. Like this past year, there will be a randomly drawn winner at the end, as well as a reward to the person who read the most books. However, rather than all prizes going to these two, there will be drawings throughout the competition for those who are participating, just to keep everyone on their toes!

Again, a huge thank you to everyone who joined! I'm really looking forward to the 2013 competition!

*Note: Will the winners please e-mail me at everythingtudor "at" yahoo.com to claim their prizes by Jan. 11th. Thanks!
