I was on here around 9:30 PST so 12:30 EST and it was only about 200 books shy of 2mil and moving up at a fairly good clip.  It was obvious people were posting books just to see it get to the 2mil mark.  I was even tempted to post some from the tbr pile just to see it hit.  But my shelf is on hold and I didn't feel like messing with it that late. So it probably happend around 1 am I would think-give or take.

I was here until around 1 a.m. EDT and it just kept bouncing between 1,999, 873 (or so) and 1,999,952 (or so), but never hit the mark.....

Hey!  When will the site announce the winners to the 2,000,000 book contest!  It must have just happened not very long ago!  Shouldn't there be a big banner waving on the site that the 2,000,000th book was posted?

On another thread, it was stated that we'd be told of the winners "shortly."  All I know is, it wasn't me!

Last time, for the millionth book, they went through and verified the actual exact time of the millionth posting.  (The counter at the top of the page is approximate.)  So I'd imagine we'll hear soon!  I'm certainly not anywhere close to winning!

The info has been on the contest page for a while already.

I was glad to see the spread of prizes........nice and generous.  Good contest.  I've lost twice now!  Next millionth is mine.
