So.. this means I should be in school right? If I wanted to get the gang of IT books for home I would probably violate the spirit of the contest?

Nope. No need to be in school. If you don't have books to buy... you can spend the $250 on whatever (beer?!?).

Can you live with yourself after depriving America's future of a wonderful financial benefit for your own gain? I mean that's pretty horrible to even suggest.

Best of luck to all those whom are working towards their (& America's) future! I'm sure whom ever wins this will put it to great use!

I saw we demand pictures of the books purchased so the peanut gallery can bicker about them based on content, language of choice, and author credentials.

Make sure you guys are confirming. You should get an email right away with a link to confirm.

I see lots of "unverified" email addys.

Way to go for breaking that whole "DIC is for students" perception we have been struggling to avoid! jk ;)

Great contest idea Chris. Too bad with today's school book prices you will be lucky to get two books with that. Still great though and would be nice to win.

Nice spiral web design book in the pic, spiral binding on a thin book pretty much says "Epic fail!" But I would have to see it for sure before I could definitively confirm that.

Oh and btw, KYA is right, beer does benefit America. It has worked for Canada all these years. Eh canucks eh?
