Congrats to all the winners. I enjoyed reading all of the entries.

Now, sadly I must go ship these Kindle Paperwhites that have been sitting on my desk mocking me.

If you realized just what the final odds of winning were -- considering how few people actually ventured a guess -- you would bash your head in with a bunch of bananas for not entering.

Thank you so much to all involved - $30 worth of good reading in my future courtesy of MobileRead! The mystery was great fun, and to actually win a prize was just the icing on the cake!

Oh, did I mixed up some threads? Isn't it the end-that-sentence topic?

Could we get some statistics, please? How many entered, how many guessed which culprit?

Inquiring minds want to know.........
