    Just a reminder that there are still a couple of book competitions on the go and looking for more entrants. I think I have made the James Fergusson questions far too easy as there are only a couple of mong, oops sorry, wrong answers. Have a go and try – they are all at the same ARRSE price of FREE.

    Running until Sunday 3 March, just click the titles to go to relevant competition page

    THE REAL GREAT ESCAPE by Guy Walters

    Running until Sunday 10 March


    Coming up soon will be competitions for:
    · Rommel's Desert Warriors ( a great book for ARRSE – it is nearly all pictures!)
    · Zero Six Bravo by Damien Lewis
    · Pilgrim Souls by Gordon Ferris (latest in the Brodie series)
    · Sterling by Robert Cameron
    · Man of War (Probably in April/May)

    Plus any others still to be offered

    So give the current ones a go and a new one will start on Sunday or Monday next.

    Please remind of going rate for a win please, as I've obviously been under tipping the competition checker!

  4. It must be great to have a lot of books ;-)
  5. What chance Arrse embracing the future and making the prizes avialable as an Ebook?

    Would save a few quid P&P when ex-pat scroungers such as myself win the competitions (still waiting for my latest win by the way).

    There are any number of conversion programmes around so it makes **** all difference which version of Ebook you have as a prize.

    Just a semi-pissed thought.

    One of the things holding back publishers from giving ebooks as prizes is their ease of distribution. If they give a hard copy then that can be passed on to your mate. An ebook can be passed to ALL your mates plus anyone on your mates distribution list; or even loaded on to 'tinterweb thingy. This has the potential to damage sales. They are also reluctant to give out ebooks for review although that is changing.
