Chance to Win $75

Yesterday in the mail, I received a packet of information from Reading Group Choices full of book ideas as well as a survey to complete. Reading Group Guides wants information about your book club, and they are willing to pay $75 for it (if you are the lucky one chosen from all of the survey responses). I had already completed the survey on-line when I was visiting their site a few weeks ago. The survey did take a little bit of time, but most of the questions were relatively easy. All you have to do is click here and answer a few questions. I recommend having a list of your book club selections for 2007 available - it will make answering the survey much easier. You have until March 28th to complete the questions and become eligible to win the $75.

Not that I don't want to win the $75, but I was thrilled to get all of the promotional literature from various publishers (my husband would probably call it junk mail.) I spent quite a lot of time reading through them, visiting their websites and signing up for their newsletters. Most of the literature had book suggestions for book club meetings; and many had brief summaries of the books as well as sample discussion questions. I was amazed by how many of the books I had never heard of. Of course I was busy adding books to my TBR list!

If you are not familiar with Reading Group Choices, you should be. It is an excellent resource for book clubs with author interviews, conversation starters (reading guides to you and me) and recommended books. And another added bonus: there are always a few giveaways going on as well!
