Every dog has its day

I have never won a lottery. I have never won any prize draws, raffles prize, lucky draw. On the few ocassions that I bet (teenage years), I have never won big in a card game. I have never won a soccer bet. I have not earned anything from the stock market. I have never won the daily newspaper crossword puzzles contests. I have never won any shopping vouchers. I am not the lucky 100th store visitor. I have never won any scratch cards.

For many years I have stopped believing that I would win anything……. (I can hear a resounding Awww… in the background).

Until today that is…….  I am the Bellezza’s Mailbox Monday winner!!!

I am not here to flaunt my win but I think Bellezza had just broken a hundred years curse that was set upon me! I am overjoy and can’t contain myself. 😀

Thank you Bellezza for hosting this.

  1. Hehe, congrats! That should make this win all the sweeter 🙂 I can really feel you there with the never winning, I never do either. I don´t enter many giveaways or the lottery anymore though, so it´s not likely to change 😀

  3. Fantastic! I saw the book in the store and wanted it. It looks great! But I know what you mean – just “winning” is better than what it is that you win (unless of course it’s the lottery!) :–)

Ratings Defined

0 = Abandon the book after first chapter

1 = Waste of paper, we will see what the environmentalist say about this!

2 = Skip it, read the book if you have got nothing better to do

2.5 = An average book, easily forgettable.

3 = A good read.

3.5 = A good entertaining read, a page-turner

4 = So glad that I read the book, a book with substance and invaluable for future reference

4.5 = So glad that I read the book, would pester everyone to read it, invaluable, I would want to own it and wouldn't mind a second read (something that I seldom do)

5 = The book is so good that I feel like I am on scale 4 and 4.5, and more, it blew me away and lingers on my head for weeks!

Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking. - Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)
