Lori, I'm glad to see that they haven't reached the limit for the free ebooks!  I did it earlier today from my phone but couldn't get to the computer to post the link until a little while ago.  I received my email from the "prize fulfillment" company, and it says:

Once we have verified your eligibility, you will receive your prize 8-10 weeks after the promotion conclusion.

That's disappointing!  I wish they would at least tell me what ebook I'm getting so I would know!  Oh well, at least I'm still in the running for the $10,000!

I filled this out and was told that I would receive an email within 24-48 hours with ebook info. Curious what book I will get. Thanks for the info, Christa.

That's the same message I got Virginia.  I got an email within a couple hours of filling out the survey that said 8 - 10 weeks.  Maybe there will be another email in the next few days.

Thanks Christa!

I did the survey three days ago and received my free ebook today!  It says "first 2000 people to fill out the survey" so I guess they haven't reached that number yet.

I did!!  For some reason, I received three emails for Thomas Nelson.  Two were for downloads of Without a Trace by Colleen Coble, which is awesome because that is one more book I can put on my Kindle and remove from my paper TBR.  The other one was for Plain Perfect by Beth Wiseman. I don't normally read Amish Fiction, but it's Free!

How do you like Elizabeth Street so far?

I got Plain Perfect, not a favorite. But I also got House of Dark Shadows by Liparulo. Sounds interesting:)

I was kind of wondering that, Deborah. I am not a big fan of Amish books so I was wondering how I got that one. But no biggie.

I finished Elizabeth Street a few weeks ago and really liked it.  I'm not very good at keeping my signature line up to date, LOL!

Liparulo is scary!!

I received Plain Perfect also and Higher Hope by Robert Whitlow.

Probably won't read Plain Perfect but the other sounds good.

I haven't tried yet, Rita, but I was just getting ready to do it.

ETA:  Mine did just fine, RIta.  I plugged my kindle into my computer, went to my email on the computer and clicked on the download link for the Mobi-Pocket edition. When it came up with the box to Open, Save or Cancel, I clicked Save then selected the drive for Kindle, then the Documents folder.  The files went straight there. I unplugged the Kindle from the computer, checked the Home page, and there they were!  Hope that detailed description helps!

Isn't it funny how many people don't want to read it? I am just not that into Amish books and have only found a couple I enjoyed reading. Mainly ones that weren't soo Amish:)

I have never read any by Liparulo. Are they that scary? I noticed the cover looked kind of creepy. I have read Frank Perreti and enjoyed his. That is about my extent of that type of book. I mainly read the historical, romance or mystery ones. I wish I could send it to somebody who would be more interested in it but I don't know if I can. If anyone does know a way, I can do that.
