January 2020 Posting Contest -- Win Two $25 rewards (which will be paid via PayPal).

Post by gali »

Another two prizes are up for grabs!

Prize 1-- The author of the topic in the January Book of the Month Discussion Forum that gets the most unique replies by the end of January wins $25 (which will be paid via PayPal). :D

Prize 2-- Whoever posts the most combined replies in January on other people's topics overall in the January Book of the Month Discussion Forum wins a $25 (which will be sent via PayPal).

The January Book of the Month is Man Mission: 4 men, 15 years, 1 epic journey by Eytan Uliel.

Very short topics and posts will not be counted. Off-topic or meaningless or 'fluffy' posts will be deleted by the moderators.

For Prize 1, "unique replies" means replies by different people, not the same person. So, for example, if one person posts four replies on one of your topics, that counts as only one.

Topics must actually be about the book. Overly general discussion topics or topics not really about the book will NOT be approved and will not be counted towards the contest.

Scott is not eligible to win (since it's his own contest).

You can check the current results anytime on the Cool Stats Page.

If you have any questions let me know.

Remember, it's meant to be fun! :D

* You need to read the book to open new threads or discuss topics.

Thank you!

If a moderator or admin wins either gift card, then Scott will send that person their prize, but he will also send the prize to the next non-moderator/non-admin in line. This way no member can get bumped from getting a prize by a moderator or admin. The reason for this is that he has asked the moderators to be sure to move or delete off-topic threads and posts, so this will make sure the moderators can be strict without it potentially seeming unfair.

Oooo! Sounds fun! Could you please explain what you mean by "combined replies"?

It means the largest number of posts on other people's topics.

On the flip-side, I found my mind going back to Reel Sisters with every page I turned. What's more: the family ties, rendezvous episodes and adventures are similar areas of interests that both authors have delved into. I think that apart from the sex of the protagonists, this book differs from Reel Sisters from the nature of their adventures. Amanda, Sophie, Veronica would spend most of their time fly fishing in Rose's cabin whereas the four mission men explored different places.

It's encouraging to see you mentioned The Reel Sisters since I'm currently reading the book. Adventure makes the reading interesting and most importantly the fact that it is a journey of discovery makes it even more attractive to read

I found something else standing out from this book. The four men honoured their commitment to the end despite of having many other responsibilities such as family, career amongst others. This shows high-level respect and value of friendship which is a great lesson for many.
