Congratulations Krista, Collin & Sadie! =D You have each won a copy of "Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Julia Child". Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org your mailing address so I can send you your copy right away!
And thanks to all the contestants who participated in the contest.
Here's a snapshot of the Excel spreadsheet where I tracked the #DearieGiveaway hashtag from day one of the contest (if you don't see your tweet in the hashtag stream, it means there is no entry from you. Sorry. Read this to find out the possible reasons why your tweets are not showing up.) The tracking was done using chronological order, as in, #1 was the first person to enter the contest. To enter, the person has to tweet "Hey @foodieyu I want a copy of Julia Child's biography "Dearie: A Remarkable Life of Julia Child" http://bit.ly/16LNpUx #DearieGiveaway". Each person may tweet once a day for the duration of the contest. Once the contest was over and everybody's entries were accounted for, I checked to see if they follow me on Twitter.
After verifying, I used "True Random Number Generator" from random.org to pick three winners from the 34 entries.
