Let’s start 2010 off with a bang of a contest, shall we?
I’d like to introduce you to a new site from Sony; it’s called Words Move Me. It’s a place for folks to interact on great literary moments—you can browse the snippets that other readers found powerful, or you can make your own profile and add your own. I’ve been playing around on the site, and the Sony folks were kind enough to make me this interactive widget thingie… check it out:
Anyway, I’m sure I don’t need to tell any of you how I feel about reading. And I may have even ranted here when Sony first came out with their electronic reader, because it wasn’t Mac compatible. But now there’s the Sony Reader Pocket Edition and it’s little and cute and it works with both Macs and PCs!
Plus you have a chance to win one from me this week, which is pretty darn fantastic, yes? Here’s the deal: I need to tell you that standard Want Not contest rules and regulations apply, and also that no purchase is necessary to win, nor does it increase your chances of winning. The good folks at Sony have given me two Pocket Edition readers in return for running this contest; one is for me and one is for you!
In order to enter, simple leave a comment on this post by 8:00 p.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 p.m. Pacific) on Sunday, January 10th, 2010, telling me what your favorite book is. Winner to be determined by random number generation and maybe just a little by whether or not you have good taste in reading material. (Kidding about that last part.)
Win the Reader and you could be toting all the reading material you could possibly want, right there in the palm of your hand. Sound good? Let’s get started!
