    I have a question about the contest. Under ‘How to Play’, “2.From June 1 to August 19, 2011, download and read as many Bookshare books as you can.”

    I have downloaded many books already that I have not yet read (I tend to download an entire series of books at once and read them without pausing to download the next book). Will the books that I have already downloaded count towards the total number of books read during the summer (only those that I read between June 1 and August 19, of course), provided that I fill out the Book Entry Form?

      Hi Taylor!

      Thanks for your question. In order for books to count in the contest, you will need to download them again during the time period (June 1 to August 19, 2011). Bookshare judges will make sure that all winners have downloaded every book that they have submitted to make sure the contest is fair to everybody. Best of luck!

    Hey bookshare,
    I just bought a trailer and the sun is always going to be out. So with bookshare books I can read them and I do not even have to look

      We’ve been asked this before and will think about adding contests for adults.

      Hello! Entrants for this summer contest must be U.S. students in grades K-12 and College. An international contest is a great idea and if you would like to propose it, you can do so here: http://bookshare.uservoice.com/forums/48297

      We’ll work on a contest for India later this year. Thanks for the suggestion!
