To make up for it, I'll be selecting three winners. I'll try and get in touch with you if I can find contact information, but if you don't hear from me, please email me at fb@forgottenbookmarks to arrange shipping.

Finally, first place. Obviously, the prize will include the four books already featured on our contest page ("The Pathfinder," "The Pioneers," and the Emerson and Dumas Modern Library editions).

There are your winners.
Now that we've got that business taken care of, I just wanted to take a few moments to thank every one who enters the contests, comments on the posts and on Facebook, chats on Twitter... sincerely, thanks for making all of this so much fun. I hope to run bigger and better contests next year, so please keep an eye on the site. I'll still be posting regularly, but if I don't talk to you along the way, have a fantastic holiday.
