    @TrishJ: This reminds me of when I won a Kindle 3 in an online giveaway – my husband still teases me with the crazy happy dance I did that day (which is not always funny ;-))

    Congrats to everyone who won!!

    Jane, the post says ‘or ebook reader of equal value’. Any chance I can put a preference for the Sony Reader WiFi in the form (plus, it’s cheaper!)? If the Sony is not an option, I’ll take the Kobo, np, it’s just that I’m a Sony kind of gal (and sometimes I wonder if I’m the only girl left on the planet who’s still into Sony readers).
