Thank you for helping The Bookery win R20 000

The Price Check Charity 48 hour blogathon just finished, and I’m so chuffed to announce that thanks to all your help and retweets and posts and votes, that we’ve just managed to win R20 000 for The Bookery. (An Equal Education Foundation that creates libraries in desperately needy schools.)

 Thanks for every single vote, made by every single one of you. I know I must have irritated the living daylights out of everyone here and on facebook and twitter, nagging constantly for votes, and I appreciate that none of you have hatched plots to murder me, or worse, unfriend me.

It’s a great initiative, and I’m so chuffed us bookies managed to pull it out.

A million and one thanks to each of you. (And a special thank you to Editor Ben for BookSA’s support.)

Happy Friday everyone. x
