Cornhusker Academy
Book of the Year Winners!

****And here we have it everyone - all the winners have been revealed! Drawings start up again on Sunday (25th) and then more on Thursday (29th) and more on the following Sunday (1st). So there you have it!**** And as a reminder, if the link is still up on the left under giveaways then the contest is still open - when the link is gone the contest is closed!

I will be revealing my choice for winners in 3 different categories this year:
Most Entertaining Book of 2008
Most Life Changing Book of 2008
Most Awesome YA Book of 2008
There will be an honorable mention and 8 places given out in each category and they were chosen out of the 220 books I read over this year. They were not necessarily published in 2008 although most of them were.

I will be revealing the winners 1 or 2 a day between Christmas Day and when I am finished, some of it will depend on when I get the interview questions back from the authors.

There are some awesome interviews coming up and some amazing giveaways as well, check back daily. I will add the links to the interviews/reviews here as they are revealed!
