    Beautiful Universe giveaway contest!

    This thread is for the Beautiful Universe book giveaway contest I described on my blog. To register, just post in this thread! That's it. On Thursday February 8 at noon (Pacific) I'll pick a random post number, and that person wins the book.

    POST ONLY ONCE, PLEASE. If you post more than once I will remove the extra post(s).

    OK, just one post, but I must ask: what's the story behind that photo of you and the book?

    Meanwhile, thanks for your generosity!

    It would sit well with my 30 copy of Universe I got for Christmas

    The probability of me randomly winning the Beautiful Universe Book is low and indeed becomes more unlikely as each participant adds a reply. Although it would be fun to win the book, at least I'll have the satisfaction of knowing that I made a prediction, no matter how vaguely defined, that the unlikelihood of my winning over time becomes more, um - likely.

    If you look at the ALT text of the picture, you will notice it says "Proof I have the book". =]

    And I would like to win the book. It will go nicely with the copy of the Bad Astronomy book (no, I'm not interested in typing out the whole title) I ordered about two weeks ago from Amazon that I'm still waiting on (free shipping = slow shipping).

    Thumbs up It is Mine

    I want that book, I need that book. Besides I deserve that book as I have the best board sig ever.

    Smile Too tired to think of anything witty

    Nothing like a sick 3 year old to destroy a good night's sleep and kill brain cells. So, umm... I need a pretty book to cheer me up

  28. #28
    Please Sire, I'm Young! I'm Beautiful! Does that help?

  29. #29
    Sign me up, please!

    And, since I live in Denmark, like Haakin I'm willing to pay the international delivery.
