Even if you didn't win a reading device or a voucher this time, a big thank you to everyone for making this such a great game. As promised, attached you find the special, leather-bound in a crush proof cover, gold-leaf collector's edition of Rock Lobster's case notes for your maximum enjoyment.

My personal thanks to the MobileRead team who I believe did an amazing job in making this contest come true. You guys rock!!!!

Last but not least, thank you to our friends at PocketBook, Astak and Directebooks who sponsored this contest.


PS: Be on the lookout for more MobileRead contests soon!
I think I'm listed as a winner of a certificate, but I didn't get a notice. R_Dollish is not my user name, but it is my name! Can we verify it by email or something?

Yay! I'm outstandingly entertaining!

...now I just have to find my bit and post it, and... unfortunately... I'm at work, and it's at home!

I sure wish a mod could dig it out of the billions and billions of submissions and put it up, or send it to me... but alas, I'm sure that's too much to ask.

Right?

It is too much? Right?

Thought so. (sigh) Well, as soon as I can, I'll post it here!

(ahem) it was the second one, guys.

Edit: The reasoning I presented... not nearly as entertaining... is here.)

He was a rougueish looking character, with a fedora pulled low over his eyes - full of hollow words and empty promises. The dame with him was another story, built for sin with legs that went all the way to the floor. I'll humor them for now I thought to myself. Thanks for looking into it!

By the way, will Rock still come here and does it will discover another case? Even if it's not for a contest

Congrats to all the winners and Thanks to the MR staff. It was a great wake-me-up this morning, almost as good as my coffee.

Thanks for a great contest, looking forward to the next one.
