A big 'thank you' to everyone who entered our recent draw for the Edinburgh International Book Festival/Guardian book bag, the postcards from Penguin, and a copy of Michael Morpurgo's Singing for Mrs Pettigrew: A Storymaker's Journey - all your comments were such fun to read. I have been away for a few days so have only now picked a winner (with the help of a random number generator), and that person is Di McDougall.
Congratulations, Di, and I'll get your prize in the post to you just as soon as I can.
Since the comments on the draw post were all about what you'd pack for a long journey, I should say that on my long journeys this last week - and I spent a lot of time on trains going to London and back with a day in Paris in the middle - my bag contained two small knitting projects, my camera, my Kindle (I've started Phil Rickman's The Wine of Angels on Sue's recommendation), and Alexander McCall Smith's forthcoming Mma Ramotswe book The Handsome Man's De Luxe Café
which had me helpless with laughter; fellow passengers must have wondered what on earth I was reading.
