      Thank you Book Depository for the chance to win this. Would be great if I was chosen as my current computer is dying a slow painful death as it gets used so much.

      I have no computer because my Step-mother wrecked my last one when she used it to beat my hamster to death. I have very cold feet today because it is not my turn to wear the shoes today. However, I bear adversity very cheerfully and I am fully convinced that in 2014 we will have the end to all war and enjoy world peace. For these reasons I think that I can say in all humility that no one deserves the computer more than me.

      I would so love to win this prize as being disabled I'm stuck at home for a lot of the time. My computer is my lifeline to the world outside and it died on me 5 weeks ago, I am so grateful to a friend for loaning me theirs for 3 months but am dreading the time I have to return it, and be cut off from everything again. Winning this prize would give me my life back as there is no way I could afford to buy myself even a second hand computer. With a new computer and a copy of Mr Reynolds book I could possibly make a whole new life and open up a new and larger world for myself and my family. I'm keeping everything crossed so that we may win. xxxx

      Book Depository and MacBook Air, a combination that would help me achieve our aim as a family. Raising six sons, most of whom live at home, I keep them informed and myself fulfilled and current for my workplace, by using Book Depository. Best value, fast delivery and wonderful service keep even my teens impressed. Since we often compete for computer access, having het MacBook Air would enable us to keep on with our courses and to place orders online to Book Depository which is our lifeline in this fast paced environment. Whilst we can do without the internet from time to time, we can never do without our books, delivered promptly to us so we can settle, read, be entertained and, mainly, learn. Thank you to Book Depository, for depositing books into our lives again for four years.

      I could be so much more productive, a lot of my time is spent running the kids to their sports and hanging out at the arena, so it would be nice for me to be able to use it to grow my small business during that time.
