As I have mention here and here, Ken Fisher is out with a new book, The Only Three Questions That Count: Investing by Knowing What Others Don't. I am reading it right now and plan to review it soon, but so far it is a great book.
As a way of saying thank you to the readers of Value Blog Review, I am going to be having several contests this month to give away copies of the book. The contest is sponsored by the publisher of the book John Wiley & Sons, which was kind enough to provide several copies of the book to share with my readers.
Of course once I had to actually come up with ideas for a contest my mind drew a blank for the most part. Here are two of my favorite ideas.
The first contest is that I have decided to have a contest to pick a contest. If you have a good idea for a contest please put it in the comments section of this post. If I use your idea you will win a free copy of the book. I may end up picking more than one idea, but you can only win once, either in this contest or any other although you may participate.
Some basic ground rules: It does not have to be stock market related, although I do have a preference for that. It should be simple enough that anybody can take a shot. Whether it is stock market related or not it should be a short contest and should not run longer than a month.
I think I have come up with a simple contest to reward those who have been paying attention while reading my site and have a little fun at my own expense.
Growing up I used to love watching re-runs of the original Twilight Zone television series. One particular episode was my favorite and my family and friends would laugh every time it came on because the ending was so perfectly tragic to me and I would always say "man that ending really sucks." If you read my site, some of my comments, and know the old Twilight Zone episodes it should be pretty easy.
The first person who guesses my favorite original Twilight Zone episode wins a free copy of Ken Fisher's book. You can either give me the exact title of the episode or just describe the story and ending enough so that I recognize it.
