Welcome to Day 1 of Buy a Friend a Book's First Anniversary Contest!
Buy a Friend a Book -- the site that urges visitors to surprise their friends with the gift of books during four quarterly BAFAB weeks a year -- is throwing a week-long puzzle contest to celebrate the site's first anniversary. Every day from July 1st to July 6th a new puzzle will be unveiled at one of the literary sites helping out with BAFAB's First Anniversary Contest -- of which GOB is the first. Contest participants will be asked to solve six puzzles and answer a final question on the contest's seventh day.
Three winners will be drawn at random from all the correct responses received. The winners will win hundreds of dollars worth of literary stuff -- stacks of books and free memberships in LibraryThing and even a text editor. See the complete prize list here and the official rules here.
