Cool Google Giving Away Sony Readers! :)

Google's giving away Sony Readers....oh and stickers too

http://books.google.com/googlebooks/game/

From the page:

Play the 10 Days in Google Books game

Welcome to the world of books! The 10 Days in Google Books game consists of 5 questions per day, each day with a different theme. Find the answers using Google Books!
Daily Prizes

Every day is a new chance to win. Here's how: after you answer today's questions, write a brief creative entry on the topic of books. Each day, the top 3 submissions will win Sony Readers. The first 20,000 people to play the game will also get Google Books laptop stickers.
Day 1: Music - Can you hit the right note?

How will I know if I won a Sony Reader?
We will contact individual winners in the 2-3 months after the contest ends, and by November 5th, 2009 at the latest.
Just a hunch, but I'm guessing that whomever wins will receive one of them newfangled Sony Readers that's coming out in the next few months.

Thumbs down US only

Sadly, the usual geographical restriction applies:

"To be eligible to enter the Contest, you must be: (1) a legal resident of and physically located in the 50 United States or the District of Columbia; and (2) <lots of other stuff>".

... For each day of the Contest Period, the 3 daily prize winners will each win a Sony Reader (cash value worth $290 (USD)).

wow, giving away 30 readers ?? that's quite a contest. i agree, it will probably be the speculated new one (if there is one...) from sony. looks like perhaps sony is getting set to launch a new publicity campaign.

Something else to keep in mind is that Google is supposedly launching their own ebook store later this year. We already knew they had a partnership with Sony, but this just further reinforces the idea that they'll continue that partnership when they both launch their respective new products.
