Gosh-a-mighty, I don't know how these things happen, but it looks like we somehow printed a handful of extra copies of my new book, "Ask Vance: More Questions and Answers from Memphis Magazine's History and Trivia Expert."
So, in the spirit of the season, we will give away a brand-new book to one lucky reader who will take the time to correctly answer five — that's right, only five — history questions pulled from topics discussed in my first book. No catch. That's right — for free. And to make it even easier, I've made the questions multiple-choice, just like back in school.
Just go to our survey page here, and try your hand at the five questions. If you answer all five correctly, your name will be entered into a hat, or a box, or a basket, or at least some kind of drawing-type device, and at the end of the week, we'll draw ONE name to see who will receive a free book. And I'll even autograph that book for the winner, if you so desire.
This contest closes on Friday, so don't delay. Fill out the survey today, and you'll have a chance to win a free book.
Already have the book? Then another one will make a nice holiday present.
If you don't already have a book, and if you don't win one this time, well I think you'd better go out and buy a copy while you still can. It's a bargain at $24.99.
Have fun, and good luck.
