Thanks for the contest Alex/MobileRead, Mods and PocketBook. It was great fun taking the challenge, turning it around, and making it challenging for the mods in hiding the letters. I'm sure we all went to places in MobileRead that we have never been before, and learned a few tricks on how to find things along the way.

The voucher will make a significant dent in my wishlist, just in time for the holidays.

Congratulations to all the other winners and to all that participated for helping make MobileRead the great community that it is.



WDE.

Well, I still say that my way of announcing the winners would have been more fun, but congratulations to the winners and to the dozens of participants who had so much fun playing the game!

No, no, no, no, no...
138? If I would have known there will be so few I would have cheated big time!

Oh well... My 360 is on it's way.

Congratulations to all the winners!

And a great big THANK YOU! to all the moderators for the contest (and the sponsors too!). As a newcomer, I had a lot of fun getting to know areas of the Forum I hadn't ventured before.

Thanks!

Anyone care to reveal how they chea... errr made their "searches more efficient"?
My method, when I was stuck, was to piggyback people who'd been quick to solve previous days' clues.

Wow!!! What a surprise. I think this is the first time I ever win something I really wanted in a lottery! Now I have to decide which pocketbook I want, I'm having some difficulties with that but I'll manage

Thank you MR and Pocketbook
