Win a Nook eReader

nook touch ereader

To celebrate the publication of my book next week, I’m giving away a Nook Simple Touch e-reader.

The Nook Simple Touch (worth £79) features E Ink display which is ‘just like reading on paper, even in bright sunlight’, and has a 6-inch intuitive touchscreen for easy navigation.

In The Language of Spells, Gwen Harper has the uncanny ability to find lost things. To be in with a chance of winning, leave me a comment on this post telling me what magical ability you’d choose to have.

For an extra entry, tweet or retweet a link to the giveaway.

Good luck!

After the closing date, I’ll pick a winner at random. Open to the UK and Ireland only, I’m afraid.*

Competition closes midnight GMT on Wednesday 5th June 2013

* Sorry about this, but I’m not sure about customs restrictions for sending a gadget across the pond…  Next giveaway will definitely be international!

    Teleportation definitely – no more wasted hours on the M6!

    It absolutely does have to be teleportation (although really I am answering the question ‘If you were a superhero what superpower do you wish you had’); if used sequentially it can give the appearance of flight or a semblance of invisibility, you can always have an alibi for your actions AND you can use it as a weapon by grabbing your enemy, teleporting to just above the sun, dropping them and then teleporting back…

    As the owner of a Kindle already I promise to auction the Nook if I win and donate all the proceeds to Mind.

    I would live to be able to slow down (or speed up) time relative to myself. Get more reading done, but also be the most “skilful” sportsperson in the world by being able to anticipate the opponents every move and get to the ball/line first.

    And to fight crime of course.

    I would love to be able to fly, just flap my arms and go. Just think how quick you could get to places.

    Flying was my first though, Jayne, but then I remembered my vertigo… Thanks for entering and tweeting – I’ll put your name in the hat twice!

      You know, I think I’d be quite scared to read minds, although I’m sure it would come in handy at times 😉 Thank you for entering/tweeting!

        I’d hate for people to be able to read my mind though. They’d definitely think I’m more crazier than they first thought. 😀

    After sitting through a day of dreary nasty weather I would love to have the ability to control the elements. Thanks for the Giveaway op and I tweeted the info. The book sounds great and has been added to my TB list (I have to quit visiting new to me authors that list is turning into a book, lol) Congratulations on the release.

    Tough choice but in the end I’d have to go for a non-selfish power and have the ability to weapons into flowers to bring about world peace. Congratulations on the book.

    Invisibility for me, then I could sneak into Ryan Gosling’s house.

    It’s not illegal if no one can see you, right?

    The magical ability I would choose is to be able to transfer my thoughts directly to an automatic typing programme so I could write my book while on the go, doing the washing up and all those other times when I have great ideas but don’t have the time to sit down to write

    Sweet blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News?

    I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there!
    Thank you
