    So, how on earth can you win this fabulous prize!? Well, I want you to send me a photograph of you or a friend holding a For Dummies book and engaged in the activity that the Dummies book is helping you to learn!

    You could, for example, send me a photo of you strumming away on your guitar with your copy of Guitar for Dummies propped up on your music stand... Or a photograph of you on the phone with a copy of Running a Business for Dummies on the desk in front of you looking suitably business-like (or just perplexed!)

    Oh, and if you don't have a For Dummies book, you can always mock-up your own book cover and send in a photo of that...

    Email entries to me at Editor AT -- and make sure you entitle your email Windows 7 Toshiba Netbook competition. Competition ends March 5th with the winner being announced on the blog in the following week...

      My 12 year old daughter and I searched the world, not just Australia for her anime books. We searched ebay and all else and then WE FOUND THE BOOK DEPOSITORY. WOW! We bought twice as many books with her savings - which she had scrimped for. Thanks. My lady and I have just bought three more books - FANTASTIC!!!

      Absolutely astonished that I just managed to order a UK title on your site that I couldn't locate in two large chain bookshops in London! With free shipping to Australia, it's a cheaper and hassle free way for me to access titles not even obtainable in Aus. THANK YOU!

      In the Bush you are indispensable, but my computer is not! It is slow and frustrating and I cannot tear it up and throw it away. Books are my lifeline.
