Blogoversary Giveaway Winner

First, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their good wishes on my 2nd Blogoversary.  When I go back over some of my posts, I am always surprised at how my blog has changed and yet remained true to its original purpose.

Second, The Children's War is a branded blog focusing on a specific area of children's and YA literature and ephemera having to do with World War II and its impact on the lives of young people.  But I read other books all the time and so I am setting up a companion blog where I can talk about those books, including all those great reads I picked up at BEA this year.  I will announce the new blog, which I am calling Randomly Reading, as soon as it it online, which I hope will be in the beginning of July.

Third, the winner of my 2nd Blogoversary is Jess from The Secret DMS Files of Fairday Morrow
Congratulations, Jess and I will be in touch shortly.

Thanks again to everyone for their support and I am looking forward to another good year at The Children's War and hope you are too.


  1. I love your blog and think it is awesome that you are starting another one about different books. I am looking forward to it!

    Yeah, Jess! I am thrilled that she won (and of course, being her co-author I know I can borrow whatever book she picks). :)

    Happy reading!

  2. Congratulations, Jess!

    And congratulations to you, too, Alex, on your second year, and for being one of the most focused and passionate bloggers I've known. Truth be told, I initially thought there aren't much resources or books about children affected by wars. You and your amazing blog proved me wrong. Now, I look forward to checking out your Randomly Reading blog.
