BooksOnBoard Announces Winners of Twilight Rewards Quest for Twilight eBook Saga
BooksOnBoard, the premier online bookshop, gives away a free Cybook eBook reader today as the Grand Prize in its Twilight Rewards Quest. Other prizes in the Twilight Rewards Quest include hardcover first editions of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the seventh novel in J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, plus varying amounts of Rewards Dollars applicable to any eBook or AudioBook at BooksOnBoard.
“I’m very excited to have won the Cybook Gen 3 in the TRQ contest!” says Grand Prize winner Moira. “I’ve been an ebook reader for five years now, primarily reading on my Palm device (several generations). I’m very excited to have an ebook reading experience which is more similar to that of reading a book. A large screen and long battery life are great features on the Cybook.”
The Twilight Rewards Quest consisted of a series of clues embedded in BooksOnBoard’s website, RSS Feed, and the “Countdown to Breaking Dawn” Podcasts sponsored by the company. The Quest ended with the release of Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer, the latest in her Twilight series which includes Twilight, Eclipse, and New Moon.
“We’re genuinely thrilled with the response to our Twilight Rewards Quest,” says BooksOnBoard CEO Bob LiVolsi. “Fans from all around the globe listened to the Countdown to Breaking Dawn podcasts and sent in their answers right after midnight. Everyone who pre-ordered Breaking Dawn from our site received a prize: 100% Rewards Dollars, so they purchased Breaking Dawn for a net cost of $0.”
The Quest ended August 2nd with the release of Breaking Dawn. Due to the overwhelming response, all responses were not processed until August 5th, and prizes were sent out earlier today.
“Tons of people wrote in to say that they enjoyed the podcasts,” says DJ Sharona, who co-hosted the podcast. “Our podcasts may become a regular fixture before big releases.”
In the first week of August, Breaking Dawn topped BooksOnBoard’s bestseller lists with over 4 times more sales than the next highest grossing title. The company said it is “very likely” to host other contests.
“The contest was a lot of fun,” added contest winner Moira. “I enjoyed listening to the podcasts. Ben and Sherona were funny and made the last hours before midnight pass quickly.”
