Christmas in July: Win a Sony eReader and MORE!

HO-HO-HO! Our muscled helper is ready...and willing...to help us celebrate our "Christmas in July Event" and even brought along our sack of "goodies" we'll be offering as prizes!

At our Yahoo site, http://groups.yahoo.com/group/romancebooksrus , we're celebrating Christmas 5 months early! We're got some great gifts...including a new Sony Touch eReader...to give away! Santa may be sleeping or working hard at the North Pole to get ready for December, but those of us at "Romance Books R Us" are ready to think snow and presents!

Well...maybe not snow...but definitely presents!

After going through all 20 authors I think I just added atleast 30 books to my to-read list. I swear that list never goes down. Love this contest too!

Thanks for the opportunity
