You might want to try crossposting to some of the reader social network sites too - LibraryThing, Goodreads and Shelfari you'll get a lot of responses that way.

Is it okay to do that? I'm only a member at Goodreads but I wasn't aware you could post things like that.
I'm on LT where there's been quite a bit of discussion over the whole amazon/Macmillion thing already. I'm sure a lot of people would like to have their views heard by at least some of the publishers.

Really, the 250$ prize is totally unnecessary. We're all dying for publishers to hear our opinion!

This is true.

but if I win, I'll spend it at Amazon, not MacMillan.

Filled it out, and gladly. Not that it will do any good, of course. This isn't David vs Goliath, this is a grain of sand on David's cousin's toe a thousand miles away vs Goliath.

Oh, and if you would, could you give the publishers this from me. image removed

And please let the *** know that I, and many others like me, wouldn't take e books off these idiots if they were paying us.

Thanks guys. You have been awesome. I can't wait to share the information with you and hopefully it will make some difference, even a small one.

You forgot the most important one there: if the book I want was available to buy.
