Congratulations to our Book Bingo winners Allie Staples, Maria Devlin, Nigel Presland and Paul Wakelin  Last week they popped into the Library to collect their prizes. They won, respectively, Sunday lunch for two at the Duke of Richmond Hotel, afternoon tea at the oghguernsey , a 50 voucher at  thefermainvalley and two guest passes for the Health Club at the stpierreparkhotel Not pictured is Hollie Froome, who won a 50 voucher at the Old Quarter Restaurant.All the winners said they loved taking part in the challenge. Allie told us she was thrilled when she heard shed won because I never win anything! Nigel said it had inspired him to read more widely than he used to, but also that it had sent him back to some old favourites, including the Hornblower series which he hadnt read since he was a child  and now hes working his way through them all! Paul was the fastest of the five winners to finish. He particularly enjoyed rereading Treasure Island, which was a popular book amongst all participants in the Childhood Favourite category. Maria singled out Set Somewhere Youd Love To Visit as her favourite category, though she regrets not choosing The Lord of the Rings for that one, as shed love to visit Middle Earth!Well done to all our winners, and a big thank you to everyone who took part in Book Bingo. The challenge will return in January with brand new categories  in the meantime, keep on reading! #reading #libraries #bookbingo #bookstagram #guernsey
