Christmas came early to Books last week with hundreds of cards fluttering into the office. We were really delighted with the fantastic response to the competition we ran on these pages a couple of weeks ago. To celebrate the Books are My Bag Popular Fiction Award, we were offering five sets of the six shortlisted titles.

These were It Started with Paris by Cathy Kelly (Orion), Keeping up with the Kalashnikovs by Ross O'Carroll Kelly (Penguin), Emma Hannigan's The Heart of Winter (Hachette), Sinead Moriarty's The Secrets Sisters Keep (Penguin), The Last Days of Rabbit Hayes by Anna McPartlin (Transworld Ireland) and The Year I Met You by Cecelia Ahern (Harper.) And the winner of the award was Cecelia Ahern for her moving, tender romance which was awarded the glass trophy last week at the Bord Gais Energy Irish Book Awards in Dublin.

The correct answer to the question who wrote Gone Girl was Gillian Flynn. The five first correct entries picked out of the office hat were Ann Marie Darling, Ballyfoyle, Co Kilkenny; Margaret Fahy, Cappawhite, Co Tipperary; Maura Joyce, Swords, Co Dublin; Tess Howley, Achill Island, Co Mayo and Emer Breen, Goatstown, Co Dublin, and five sets of these terrific reads are winging their way to you. Many thanks to the hundreds who entered and happy reading to our quintet of winners.
