100 Books - Win a Kindle!

Remember how I failed to give away a Kindle at the beginning of September? Well, they say everything happens for a reason. At the end of the month, Amazon announced new Kindles and price-cuts on all but the DX (my Kindle). So....

You may also remember that I'm trying to compile a list of 100 Books Every Writer Should Read.

QUICK SUMMARY and RULES
1. Please send your list of 10 books every writer should read to muchlanguage (at)gmail (dot)com.
2. You don't have to, but I'd love if you included nationality in your email. If you do, I'll use that info to tabulate the number one book for Brits v. Americans vs. Australians, etc. (This hinges on your nationality being represented by at least 5 people.)
3. Please spread the word on twitter, your blog, facebook, in person, etc.
4. Please comment when you spread the word. There is no limit to the number of entries you can receive for spreading the word.
5. I'll accept lists until December 31, 2011 (11.59 pm EST as usual). I have less than 200 respondents, I may extend that.
6. I'll compile the list in early January (or a few weeks after I've stopped accepting lists) and draw 2 winners: One from the people who sent lists, and one from the people who spread the word.

ANYONE CAN WIN: New and improved!
Originally, I was giving away the top 5 single volumes from the list.

But now...

If the winner is in the US/can fandangle a US address: you can win your choice of:

the Kindle Touch 3G

OR

the Kindle Keyboard 3G

OR

the original prize of the top 5 single volumes from the list.

If the winner is not in the US:

the Kindle Keyboard 3G

OR

the original prize of the top 5 single volumes from the list.
(Go grumble with Amazon about the Touch not being available for the rest of the world. In fact, if the Fire was available universally...)

If the winner is in Pakistan or one of the other few countries Amazon can't send a Kindle to:

the original prize of the top 5 volumes from the list.

(So long as Amazon, Book Depository or Japan Post will mail to you, I will send it.) In case you're lost right now, here's the bare essence.

2 Kindles up for grabs. 

Send me a list of 10 books every writer should read, you're entered to win Kindle 1. 

Spread the word, as often as you feel like, and leave a link at the bottom of this post, you're entered to win Kindle 2. 

 
Of course, if you've already spread the word or sent a list, those entries are still eligible. Thanks for helping! And remember, any time you want to get back to a 100 Books post, cllick the linky ----->>>

PS and Edit. Any book counts, just not writing craft. If you think every writer should read the Kama Sutra, then write that.
