    Hmmm. I wonder what the book itself costs.

    Buy a book and review it to win 15 grand?

    I think not. I’d rather do it for the heck of it.

      My point exactly…what a clever marketing scheme!

      But seriously…is it really clever?

        I don’t think paying to have your book reviewed is absurd…perhaps organising a contest around it is, but it’s all to an end- Publicity. You’ll be surprised at how well this worked eventually…or not.

    yeah…very attractive cover. Maybe if they provide pdf versions of the book free and let folks compete to review…

    But I don’t want to read the book na.
    I will still do a review. Nobody says you must read a book before you review it.
