    Michael's response to the news:
    "Thank you very much. I'm still in shock. I can't believe I won. I've never won a contest before. I had been tracking the posted book numbers for a while, watching to see if there was trend. As it got closer and closer I realized there wasn't much of a trend and I decided to just guess. I changed my mind about 5 times before settling on a completely random time. I can't believe I was so lucky. Thank you so much PaperBackSwap and congratulations on 2,000,000 books posted!"

    "I was so surprised and excited to get the call from Richard saying that I had won 2nd place in the contest! Actually, I was browsing books in a gift shop in the Fort Myers airport when he called, feeling a little depressed that our Florida vacation was over and it was time to head home to chilly Indiana. I cheered up quickly! I'll be sharing my credits with my dad -- I picked March 24th on a whim because it's his birthday, and I picked 9:02 a.m. for my birthday, September 2nd. Thanks again for the great gift, and I'll look forward to expanding my membership to the CD and DVD swap and Box-O-Book features. I'll continue to recommend this great site to my friends and family."
