#BIR2011: Giveaway Winners

Before I list the winners from this year's event, I'd first like to thank some people for making Best I've Read 2011 as great as it was.

A huge thank you goes out to each and every one of the authors who participated in BIR2011. You are the reason we do this, and we're so grateful that we've been able to work with each of you. 

To the publicists and publishers who work so very hard to get these amazing books out there into the world, thank you. It can't be easy doing what you do. You're appreciated! 

To the bloggers who participated this year, you're awesome beyond words. Thank you! 

To you, the readers, you've been so supportive and so excited when Best I've Read started both last year and this year, and we'd be nothing without you. Thank you for reading! We look forward to seeing you again next year. :-)
