And the winners of autographed Arthur Frommer travel guidebooks are …

Before we close the book on Friendly Planet Travel’s contest to win autographed Arthur Frommer travel guidebooks, I want to tell you who won! But before I reveal the names, let me refresh your memory on what’s at stake here.

When we were at The Philadelphia Inquirer Travel Show, we got the opportunity to interview Arthur and Pauline Frommer, two of the BIGGEST names in the travel industry. They were so gracious. Not only did they give us a few minutes of their time (when everyone wanted a few minutes of their time), but they also signed a few of their travel guidebooks for us.

Instead of keeping them all for myself, I bundled “Ask Arthur Frommer” and “Frommer’s Costa Rica 2011” together to give two sets away to two lucky Friendly Planet Travel readers. You then told me why you wanted to win these great (and autographed) books by commenting on the original post, and today we randomly selected two winners.

And the winners are … Kellie Cereola and Kelvin! Congratulations! Both of you will be receiving copies of the books signed by Arthur Frommer. We’ll be contacting you shortly to confirm your address to send you books. In case you didn’t see them the first time, here are photos of Arthur’s sig.

Thanks to everyone who entered. I loved reading all the comments and I’m so happy to see that like me, Arthur Frommer not only inspired you to travel, but has given you great travel advice along the way. I’d also like to thank Arthur again for talking with Friendly Planet Travel and autographing the books.

And if you didn’t win this time, don’t fret. I’ll be telling you how you can enter to win a copy of “1,000 Places to See Before You Die,” autographed by Patricia Schultz. And if there are any other travel writers you’d like to see us to feature on the blog, let me know in a comment.

I just can’t get enough of the Frommers! I’m still on cloud nine about Melissa’s interview with Arthur and Pauline Frommer at The Philadelphia Inquirer Travel Show.

Today, to keep the excitement going, I’m giving two lucky readers the chance to win copies of “Ask Arthur Frommer” and “Frommer’s Costa Rica 2011,” autographed by Arthur Frommer.

As I told you in my last post, in my pursuit of an interview with the Frommers, I was able to snag a few autographed copies of Arthur’s latest books. He was kind enough to not only talk to us on camera, but autograph four books for us. Thanks Arthur!

I packaged “Ask Arthur Frommer” and “Frommer’s Costa Rica 2011″ together to give two sets away to two lucky Friendly Planet Travel readers. Both are packed with travel advice and sure to come in handy. Take a quick look at Arthur’s John Hancock.

To enter to win, leave a comment on this post telling me why you want to win Arthur’s books. Would you keep them for yourself or give them away as a gift? Or has Arthur Frommer been your travel muse? Tell me all about it!

To be eligible to win, you must include your first name and an e-mail address where we can contact you if you win in the comment. The commenting contest starts today and ends on Wednesday, Feb. 23 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
