I Won! Michelle Moran Treasure Hunt

Become a Literary Archaeologist For A Day!

I have been waiting for this for some time now and it has finally happened. Today on Michelle Moran's Site she posted Literary Clues that go with a specific bookstore that is participating. If you can figure out the clue it leads you to a book in the store. If you find the right book you find a ribbon that say "Digging for Cleopatra's Daughter You've Won". After you take the ribbon the the cashier then you get a "goodies" bag. In the goodies is A signed copy of Cleopatra's Daughter, An authentic Roman artifact (each one is unique), Cleopatra earrings, and other Cleopatra goodies!

There is still many locations across the nation that now one has found yet. Be sure to check out Michelle's site for the clue.

I drove an hour and a half to the bookstore closest to me, which was at the beach. Dragging the kids the whole way. The funny part is when I got there they had been only open for less than an hour and I could not find the book. I told the nice lady "you probably know why I am here" and I handed her the note with the book information on it. She could not find it. So we went to the cash register and she was going to search for it when I noticed right next to the computer was the book with the ribbon barely hanging out. I squealed "That is it, right there"! They were so nice at the Cannon Beach Book Company, I even took a picture for you all. Thank You Michelle for doing such a fun promotion, by far one of the coolest Treasure Hunts Ever! I am wearing the Cleopatra earrings right now.


  1. That is so cool! There's not a participating bookstore anywhere near me...

  2. I went and looked at my local bookstore - but it had been found before I got there :(. Congrats to you tho!

  3. Once again - CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!

    I LOVE the photo :] And Dollygurl, I'm sorry it was already taken :[

  4. That is lame Dolleygurl, that is what I thought when we could not find the book. I know I was scared when I heard about this because it could be so far but it was worth the drive. It was a beautiful day today.

    Thank You Michelle I love it!

  5. Well done to you, nothing like a bit of success to get the good feelings flowing.

  6. I knew the date 15 September rang a bell other than my wife Hazel's bday (55 years, good grief we are old), it is/was also your 6 month anniversary on this blog. Many congrats for that.

  7. Wow, congratulations! There weren't any in bookstores near me unfortunately, but it's such a great idea.

  8. I Am so HAPPY for you!!!
    That is just awesome and totally exciting, I am so glad that you have won!
    You lucky girl.. you with your Cleopatra earrings and me with my Anne Boleyn bracelet today, we would make an interesting pair! :)

  9. Congratulations! There wasn't one near me or I would have been running to the nearest bookstore. It was such a great contest idea.

  10. Dave you amaze me that you noticed the 6 month mark. It is hard to believe it has only been that long. Happy Birthday to Hazel, what a beautiful name too.

    Marie, I want that bracelet so bad, it is so pretty, defiantly an interesting pair.

    Thank you for all the support, it was a fun thing to do.

    I spent many, MANY happy hours last winter monitoring the new blogs on blogcatalog and in a weird way consider the best to be my 'foster children' whom I continue to track and enjoy.

    Realising that this was your 6/12 bday stimulates me to check up again on the others I highlighted and see how they are doing.

    I'll let you know!

    best from Hazel who says thankyou.

  12. I totally feel the same way. It would be interesting to know how long it takes for a blog successful and what the life span of a blog is.

    Thank you for watching out for me.

  13. Congrats to you!

    The one nearest me (Atlanta) has been discovered.

  14. I love Michelle's original ideas for promotions. She is very creative.

    Thank you Amy!
