Summer Fun...

... And what that means for you.

So yesterday I had my last exam which was on Statistical Inference.  Always a fun subject.  Which now means that for me I am on summer break!

Anyway, that means I have more time for reading and things like that. Last year I held a 98 days of Summer Contest that lasted all summer.  This year I was thinking of going for something a little different.  To celebrate that it is now my summer holidays (and soon to be Scarlett's) we are having a giveaway.  This giveaway will last this month and next so we'll announce the winners in the new year.  Basically what we're going to do is present you with an opportunity to gain points once a week.  All you have to do is fill in the form below to be in to win and then every Tuesday from now until the 4th of January we will post up a mini challenge which you can do to get points.  We're making it that there will be four winners.
First Place: Most points and you get to pick two books from the list below.
Second Place: Second most points and you get to pick one book from the list below.
Third Place: Third most points and you get a bunch of bookish swag.
Random Winner: Everyone who is entered will have their name in the draw to be randomly selected to win their choice of on book from the list below.
If there is more than one person with the same amount of points then the winners for first, second, third will be randomly drawn.  The challenges will be easy and you have from when they are posted until the 3rd of January to complete them.

Open to anyone anywhere the Book Depository ships to.
