Thx for the great contest!

I was really jumping with joy when I got the news (And nearly embarrassed myself as I was staying in the college library at that moment ). Now I can't wait to get my hands on the EZ Reader

Congratz to all the other winners

Mental anguish? I loved it!
And the deluxe leather-bound gold-leaf ebook is of course a priceless prize in itself! I will keep it in the most prominent shelf of my library for ever (loved the epilogue by the way )
