Book Winner, Another $25 Gift Card Giveaway, and Weekend Reading – August 1, 2008


It’s been about a week now since I did a book review and giveaway draw on “The Answer”. The book giveaway received more interest than I had anticipated with over 75 entries. 1 winner was randomly chosen from all of the valid entries. The winner of a free copy of “The Answer” is… TKO from Ontario!

How about another giveaway? We are getting close to drawing another winner for a $25 gift certificate from Amazon or Chapters. For a 1 in 100 chance to win, all you have to do is signup for a GreatCanadianRebates account (free) and you’ll be automatically entered for the draw.
