Win Prizes From Book Buzz
We're going to spend this summer in fictional vacation spots. If you could take a trip into any book, where would you go? You can pick an imaginary place like Alice's Wonderland or a real place that is featured in a book, Sherlock Holmes' London, for example.
When: July 1-August 31, 2012
How do I enter: Pick a vacation destination and tell us all about it in our Summer Contest discussion.
Prizes: Participants will be entered into a draw for 10 book prize packages. The winners will be announced in the first week of September.

3. Read a book in translation.
4. Read a genre you would normally avoid.
5. Read a classic you've never tried.
6. Read a biography of someone you dislike.
