This infographic offers some numbers about alternative approaches and the amazing savings of open source college textbooks

Contests around the ‘net – December 9, 2010

Hi all!

Though I have a contest running through Sunday, December 12th myself for a set of autographed books from the Girls Know How series – I wanted to highlight a few other contests around the net!

  • Orbit Books has a contest for a set of three books from author Rachel Neumeier. Check it out HERE.
  • Patrick at Pat’s Fantasy Hotlist is giving away three copies of Susan Griffith’s Vampire Empire: The Greyfriar, which has a very cool Steampunk cover. Check it out HERE.
  • SciFiChick is giving away a free movie pass to see a sneak preview of Tron: Legacy if you live in Indianapolis. Check it out HERE, but be quick – entries have to be in by midnight December 10th!
