We caught up with Karen after her big win to find out more about her love of Pinterest and just why Dr. Who is so cool. Here are some highlights about this flipping cool BookRenter.

Turns out, Karen LOVES the University of Rhode Island: “In only one semester I have found what seems like the perfect major for me (Environmental and Natural Resource Economics) and I couldn’t be happier!” However, when she saw the prices of the textbooks she would need her first semester, her “jaw was on the floor.” Based on recommendations from upperclassmen friends, she checked out BookRenter, did some price comparison with other companies, and discovered for herself that BookRenter always has the cheapest price. Such a smart bargain-shopper!

Karen’s an old pro at Pinterest since she’s been using it since October. Apparently it’s the new shiny way of “procrastinating and being productive at the same time.” (Hey, whatever happened to Facebook as the productive procrastination thing-to-do??) She even had a strategy for winning the contest; we won’t tell you the secret, but it involved some of her Facebook friends who “owe their Pinterest obsession to me, after all. :-)”.

If you’ve checked out Karen’s winning contest board, you’ll notice a bit of a theme. So we couldn’t help but ask, “What’s so awesome about Dr. Who?”:

“If I had to choose one thing I love about Doctor Who, it would have to be the fandom. I have found that there is an unexplainable unity between fans of the show.”

Well, we hope she likes the personalized Finals Survival Kit we put together; there just might be a couple of Dr. Who-themed surprises in there…

Last but not least, Karen left “a virtual hug to all the smart consumers of BookRenter”: *hug*

Right back ‘atcha, Karen.
