Book Giveaway Contest UPDATE

In light of a rather spectacular lack of interest in the contest so far, I'm going to suspend choosing winners until Friday (October 2, 2010 for those of you more date-minded folks).  There's still plenty of time to enter!

See yesterday's post for full details, and to enter in the comments.

Rule refresher:

1. To enter, become a follower on the blog, and make a comment on this blog entry. Bonus points if you Tweet or Facebook about it. Just tell me in your comment.

Here's the twist: In the comments, please tell me if you plan to share this banned book with anyone. You could lend to a friend, donate to your library, leave it in the dressing room at a clothing store--the possibilities are endless. Be creative, and be sure to tell me about it.
You can still win, even if you plan to keep the book. Just lend it to a friend, okay?

2. On Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, I will use go through the entries to look for the best ideas (Hey, it's my blog, I get to be the judge.) The top five will go into a randomizer and the winner will be notified.

3. Wednesday's winner gets to choose from the three books available, Thursday's chooses from the remaining two, and Friday's gets whatever is left.

4. Oh, and I'm not rich, so let's restrict winners to the U.S. and Canada, please!

Spread the word and win a book!

I don't facebook or twit (tweet?), and I already faithfully follow you, so I wasn't sure if I was eligible to enter.

But I do have a wonderfully literary friend I would pass a banned book to. She used to teach middle school English, in the open-minded, take-the-world-by-storm kind of way. I'm sure she'll be back there someday, and have no doubt a controversial book would make the most headway in her hands.

@Gordon: Welcome, glad to have you!

@Nicole: So glad you did!

@11-11: Of course you're eligible! And what a fabulous idea for spreading the word.
