Enter to Win a New Kindle Fire!

It’s a slow day today, so I thought it was time for another giveaway – this time it’s for one new Kindle Fire!

Here are the rules for this giveaway:

  • The time period is between now and 11:59 p.m. EST August 3rd.
  • You can enter once – and only once.
  • I’m doing this giveaway in an attempt to increase the blog’s email subscription option (no, you don’t have to do anything with Facebook or Twitter with this one to enter); if you do sign up for the email delivery option you can always unsubscribe at any time. You can also have more chances to win if you refer a friend (see the options below).
  • You don’t have to be a resident of the USA to enter – in other words, you can live anywhere in the world Amazon delivers merchandise. However, if Amazon does not ship Kindle Fires to your country, I will replace the new Kindle Fire with the same value in an Amazon gift card to do with as you please.

To enter:

  • Just click on the Enter to Win section of the box a little further down on this page: click on the “Join” line-item underneath the “Enter to Win” header.
  • For an additional 10 chances to enter, you can refer the giveaway (and the blog) to a friend. After you have entered via the method above, a box will appear that will give each entrant a unique URL you can share with your friends. For each friend that enters the giveaway, you will receive +1 entry into the giveaway: each entrant can refer up to 10 people.

In return, here is what I will do:

  • Randomly draw one winner from all of the entries for the Kindle Fire.
  • Have Amazon ship out a brand new (i.e., not a refurbished) Kindle Fire to the winner.

The last giveaways have been fun, and generated a lot of excitement. Seeing as how there is an easy non-Facebook/Twitter option to enter, I’m hoping the number of entries will be a lot more than last time.

If you’re reading this on your Kindle and not the actual blog page, you can go to your computer’s web browser and type in http://smarturl.it/firemeup and enter away!

Website Owners / Authors

Several people have asked me on previous giveaways how they can have their web visitors, blog readers, and friends join in on future giveaways: the more the merrier! There are two ways:

  • Just link them to the giveaway page on the blog – just tell them to go to http://wp.me/p2b82w-4Ji on their web browser.
  • You can embed a widget just like the one I have on this page to your website or blog page. Just click here and follow the easy instructions (if I can figure it out as an accountant, it has to be easy). All entries will go into the same hat!


That should do it – and good luck to everyone!

  1. Cherita Knight says

    Have really enjoyed your blogs and recommendations. Which Kindle Fire is part of the Giveaway.

  2. says

    Love getting the.99 books they are helpful since can't really afford the more expensive books. Love getting on and seeing what's new Thanks for searching these deals out and posting them!

  3. says

    I love my Kindle, and would love to win, to give as a gift, to a friend or family member. It is the best way to read anything you want, not to mention all the other features the kindle comes with. Good luck everyone.

  4. Julie Nicholson-Rieman says

    New to the blog…actually the first blog I've ever subscribed to. Looking forward to reading the posts :-)

  5. Lin Tedde Teachenor says

    I've wanted a Kindle Fire so badly but just haven't had the "bucks" to get one – maybe I'll get lucky this one time – I can always HOPE! Thanks for the chance.

  6. Coni Bauer says

    I wanted one too. Then my sister in law gave me her second generation Kindle because she got an iPad. I still would LIKE one but now at least I can take advantage of all the free books on Amazon :) Good luck!

  7. Cynthia Bayer Blain says

    I use the Kindle app on my PC to buy and read my e-books; but it sure would be nice to have a hand held e-reader rather than sitting on a chair in my office to read. What a great giveaway. I am not good at holding my breath, and not lucky, but did want to enter just for the fun of it. Love my Kindle books even if I don't have an Kindle Fire, etc. But…… did I say how nice it would be IF I did have one? :) Thanks for the great giveaway.

  8. Toni Moniot says

    I have found so many new, and very well-written books through this site. My son wants to do the same! I raised a multi-genre, wonderful man. Check out this site and do the same!

  9. says

    Great giveaways. With macular, an e reader is the only way to go. My kindle has been in constant use and is getting old. Got my fingers (and toes) crossed on this one. What a wonderful surprise it would be.

  10. Amy Lacey Rozycki says

    Thanks for the chance to win as well as all the great tips I get from you. You are the only "app" That makes me feel like I know you… and trust you. Uh oh! LOL!

  11. Julie A Rogers says

    I really, really, really need a Kindle Fire. I have a whole bunch of books on my Kindle App on my computer. Please, please, please, pick me.

  12. Linda Burney Scali says

    Absolutely NEED to win this – there are already 7 bookcases (and not small ones, either) in the den, and no more room for additions. This would make the next 250+ books a lot easier to store.

  13. says

    Michael, I love the lists you send. I really loved when you tried to make the one author #1 on Amazon that week. More of that kind of thing, particularly for authors you think are really good. I think you should have less free books and more 99 cent ones, I think most people can afford a buck for a good book. And by that, I mean really choose the authors and make sure the books are good…that supports you and the author. My daughter is hooked in with Indie blogs and promotes the authors she likes just for fun (she has not written any books). I know there are a gazillion of these kind of things going on, but it is really good. Maybe look at that in terms of getting your favorite or customer favorite authors, emailing them and asking if they want to put together a blog hop or something and you will send it out. Prereq is that the authors are ones you have read and recommend so people who know you on this blog have confidence in the choices that they aren't a waste of time. Have them run a special on one of their books for 99 cents to hook back to you. Have them do the hop and all the work and you just promote it. Sounds like a win for everyone. Just a thought. Well, that is all I know for now…

  14. says

    Always great reads here. Have not picked a book I did not thoroughly enjoy. Am entering for my mom. Somehow she's lost her kindle. Really missing it. Hopefully can replace it!!

  15. Kathi Clayton says

    I cannot seem to enter this contest? I hit enter and it either opens a new tab or does nada. When you use facebook I never have any difficulty. Darn.

  16. Beth-ann Trudeau says

    This could not come at a better time. My Kindle Keyboard died on me the other day. It was well loved and well used.

  17. says

    I'm really enjoying the "new" authors I have found as a result of Michael's efforts in behalf of limited income book readers. My local Leon Valley Library provides me with all those infamous writers, a few of which do great things with the millions they've made, but there is NO way I could buy a copy and be able to reread whenever I want. Now I have my forever copy of some fantastic writers and didn't pay much if anything for the stinkers that were easily discarded without regret. I currently read on my Note II; a Fire would be awesome!

  18. Katie Larink says

    *crosses fingers* I've been stealing my sister's Kindle Fire too much lately. This would be a lovely solution. Love the selection of books you send out every day! I've gotten some great ones. :)

  19. Cheri Knuth Carpico says

    I have a Nook but most of my friends have the Kindle and I would love to win a Kindle Fire!!
