Remember how at the end of last year I invited you all to join in with #readinto16 by sharing what you were reading at the turn of 2015 into 2016? As an incentive I offered a giveaway where one reader would win one of the seven books I enjoyed most in 2015.
After much deliberation amongst the jury members (the entire Booker Talk household) and with the aid of a highly sophisticated algorithm we have a winner.
The prize goes to Cleopatra who blogs at Cleopatra Loves Books – at the midnight hour on December 31, 2015 she was reading The Lake House by Kate Morton. Here’s her post on the topic. She now gets to choose one of these books:
The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton
Old Goriot by Honore de Balzac
Cry the Beloved Country by Alan Paton
The Snow Kimono by Mark Henshaw
A Man Lies Dreaming by Lavie Tidhar
The Redemption of Galen Pike by Carys Davies
The English Patient by Michael Ondaatje
Thanks to everyone who played along with this. It was good to get a glimpse of what you were up to on that date.
