What book by King am I thinking of?

Posted: January 10, 2012, 00:00:00

OK, I donít know about you but I love contests. And what can be better to do when you love contests than having one? And since the audio edition of Mile 81 happens to be released today, how about if I give five of you the chance to get a copy for free?

This time you will have to work for it though and here is how.

You will have to figure out what book by King Iím thinking of right now. Easy, isnít it? Well, I will help you on your way. Between January 10 and 13 I will give you clues on Liljaís Libraryís facebook group. You can then decide when you want to submit your answer (you submit it here) and you can do it whenever you want between January 10 and 13 but be careful. You only get one chance and then youíre out of the game. But donít wait too long either because itís five that gives me the correct book title first that wins the five copies of Mile 81.

You donít need to ďLikeĒ the Liljaís Library group but if you do youíll know faster when I have posted a clue. Because I wonít tell you in advance when or how many clues there will be. OK, I will say that the first clue is on the facebook site now, there will be at least one each day and I will tell you when I post the last one.

OK, good luck to you all!

My review of Mile 81

Here is my review of Mile 81. Please know that it contains some small spoilers though...

Read Mile 81 6 days early

Posted: August 25, 2011, 12:29:46

But only if you live in the US... Scribner, StephenKing.com and Klout are running a contest where you, if you submit some info and live in the US, can win a copy of Mile 81 6 days before it's release. You can read more about the contest (who is open between 6:00am and 11:59pm EST today 8/25/11) here.

Not living in the US I was naturally a bit bummed out about not being able to enter but then I read this "As an added bonus, those who are chosen will also receive a link to forward a second digital copy of Mile 81 to a friend". So, if anyone wins and don't know who to send it to, maybe Lilja@Liljas-Library.com would be a good choice?
