MobileRead's Winter Contest Winners Revealed!

MobileRead's Twelve Days of Christmas Murder Mystery (Story Thread) challenged our members to match their wits with Agatha Chicken's world-famous detective Hercule Poulet to determine which one of the moderators was the fiendish devil behind it all. A Winter Murder Mystery (Kindle/mobi and ePub) told the story of this dastardly fiend that dared to eliminate the other moderators.

The entries came in, the suspects were accused (we enjoyed reading all your reasons for your chosen suspect), and the correct entries were added for the prize drawing.

And now for the moment everyone on the Internet (just play along) has been waiting for: it's time to announce the winners (randomly chosen from all the correct entries).



The Winners Are....

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite + WaterField Kindle Paperwhite Slip Cases
Kobo Glo
Onyx Boox i62HD
Onyx Boox M92 Black
PocketBook Touch
E-Book vouchers worth $30 each
Congratulations to all the winners!

We're hugely thankful to the fine folks from eReader-Store, Kobo, PocketBook, WaterField Designs, and everyone else who helped us make this contest possible. You're great!

Thank you again to everyone that played along with us and sent in some fantastic entries (it looks like there may be some potential writers out there ) and for all the wonderful thoughts about MobileRead.

Thank you - MobileRead Mod team and all the stores, for me especially eReader-Store - very very much for writing this story, making such a contest and for generously providing these prices. I had great fun solving the puzzle.

Please post a review of your prize when it arrives!

[Clarification: This is just because I'm interested. Winners are under no obligation to write reviews or do anything in particular with their prizes.]

Thank you, MobileRead. It was a wonderful mystery.

I'm still muttering to myself, "I can't believe I actually won." When there was a comment that about 50% of entries guessed correctly I gave up hope of winning.

But I guess, being one of the Indians paid off this time.

Congrats to all the winners. I enjoyed reading all of the entries.

Now, sadly I must go ship these Kindle Paperwhites that have been sitting on my desk mocking me.
