This morning, I printed out the names of all the people subscribed to the Italy Explained newsletter. The early adopters got printed twice. Then I conjured my kindergartner self and cut out fringe-like strips of paper, dropping them into a big salad bowl.
I quickly learned, as I swished more than 100 pieces of paper around, that the bowl wouldn’t do – paper kept falling on the floor. So the strips got dropped into an empty trash can.
With a final dramatic swirl, I drew one piece from the bin, and I’m happy to announce that:
Congratulations, Marilyn! I hope you love the book as much as I do.
For everyone else whose name was in the proverbial hat, thank you so much for entering – and if you’d like your own copy of the book, it’s available on Amazon.com.
