    3. Wasn't Damon Runyon the guy who wrote the book that "Guys and Dolls" is based on?
      "The oldest established permanent floating CRAP GAME in New Yoooooork . . ."
      Ahem.

    4. "Where's the action? Where's the game?" "Gotta have a game or we'll die from sha-a-a-a-a-a-a-me."

      Yup, that's based on "The Idyll of Miss Sarah Brown." Other movies that are based on his stories include "The Lemon Drop Kid" and "Little Miss Marker."

  3. I WON THE VIRGINIAN!!!!!! Eeeek! That is so funny, because I've been telling my sisters I was going to win it, and then this morning when I went to check I said, "Okay, time to see if I won The Virginian..." and I have! :-) Thanks so much!

  5. Yay! I believe this is only the second giveaway I've ever won (out of the dozens I've entered), so this made my day, especially since Where Eagles Dare was the one I most wanted to win. :) Thank you for hosting this!

    4. Well, I think we all had a lot of fun, so yeah, wouldn't it be a neat annual event? Every June? Either way, I'm sure I'll be hosting another giveaway next year.

    5. I'll do it, too! Annually would be great! Although, now that I think about it, I may be moving next June...so we'll see. But thank you for the giveaway; it was so fun! And my prize will make a wonderful new book journal--mine's almost full, yay!

  9. Thank you SOSO much, Hamlette!:D I'm sure I'm going to enjoy the rainbow-colored book, and I'm especially looking forward to the sonnets! I need to brush up my Shakespeare (hey! I just had a chance to quote "Kiss Me Kate" in real life!!!), so this'll be great;D

    1. I know, right? I've never had this big of a response to a giveaway before, or this diverse! Usually it's like there's 3 or 4 people who enter who are from out of the US, but this time, there were scads! Pretty groovy. I think I hit 4 continents here!
