Great idea, congratulation for having this contest! It's nice to "hunt down" the clues. It resembles hidden object games. I hope I'll be able to find the rest of the letters as easily as these two. Good luck to all the participants!!

Nice idea, thanks!
It would have been great too if there was a price for the first person to guess the book title, with only one guess by poster.

Anyway, I'm still wondering about who shall be the first to guess to book title? And after how many letters?
I guess somebody with good memory, lots of reading already behind him, and sufficient computer skills to run wildcards search.
I'm sure gonna try, even I'm I sometimes have trouble remembering the titles of the books that I read last month

Gads...that took some digging. Very subtle clue, mate!

I hope when someone does know the answer they won't broadcast it here. they will give others a chance to figure it out on their own.

Perhaps we should open a separate "guess about the title" thread with spoiler warning. What would the moderators think about that?
As the letter are not in order, It would be mostly random guessing anyway till late in the game (at which point I guess the thread could be closed).

Ummmm....I know we are a free-giving community, but I really think that would spoil the whole point of the contest. Just because one person doesn't care if he wins or not doesn't mean he should post the anwer and spoil the odds for the rest of the people who did the work.

I like that this contest is a little more involved than "post a comment and you're in!" It makes for better odds...and I REALLY would like to win that reader!

Wildcard search of book titles. Sounds like a fun evening...we should have enough letters by this weekend to run it too. Yay projects.

MOBILEREAD WINTER CONTEST DAY 3: HINT

Welcome to day 3 of our winter contest. Good News first: The next letter can easily and quickly be found if you read my post carefully. Bad news is: We won't give any more Commentary on where to find it exactly. Have fun!

Bwah ha ha ha! They're getting better! So much for searching for the term "3rd Letter." Besides, the clue is much more useful than any Google-fu for today.

You know, there just aren't very many 11 letter book titles.

Sounds like I'm not the only one who has a guess already then. I'm probably wrong, but we'll see as the days go on.
