Riddles and a Book Giveaway, O My!

The Lovely Bones, Alice Sebold

Because I love my followers, I am doing a fantastical book giveaway! It's easy peasy to enter: 1--be a follower, and 2--e-mail me (elizabethmueller6 AT gmail DOT com) your answers to the 3 riddles below with the subject heading: Riddles. I will give you one entry for every right answer you get, and an entry for an honest try if you don't get them right. ;)

Ready? Here we gooooo!!!!

1. What is the difference between an old nickel and a new dime?

2. If your uncle's sister is not your aunt, what relation is she to you?

3. What is that which has never been felt, seen nor heard, never existed and still has a name?

Please don't leave answers in comments below so others have a fair chance at them (or you won't be able to enter)--thank you!!! Last day is the 15th. I will announce the winner and answers the 18th, Friday!

PS--this book is NOT for the faint of heart.

Good Luck and have fun! ;)
