Wilde Contest!

I love contests, and I love books. So, here's a contest that involves a book and a movie, too! How cool is that?!

You have until November 5th (that's right--four days) to commit to reading our November book club book, which is actually Oscar Wilde's play, "The Importance of Being Earnest," AND get three other people to commit to reading it and attending our November book club, which will be held on the 19th (note that this is a Thursday). The catch is, once your three friends commit to reading the play, they can't commit to anyone else to do it. In other words, if I ask my dear ward member friend to read the play and she commits to it, then she can't also commit to you. Her commitment is MINE. If you commit to reading the play and get three friends to commit too, then your name will be put in a drawing for a ticket to see the new Jim Carrey movie adaptation of "A Christmas Carol," which comes to the Pullman theater (Village Cinemas) THIS WEEKEND (the 6th, to be exact). We're reading A CHRISTMAS CAROL for our December book club, so watching the show will be good preparation.

*Commit to reading "The Importance of Being Earnest" and to attending book club on November 19th.
*Talk to three friends FAST and get them to commit (it's short, by the way) to reading the play and coming to book club, too.
*Email Kim by 11:59 p.m. on November 5th so she can put your name in a drawing (I'll probably wait to draw in the morning, if that's okay with ya'll.).
*Actually keep your commitments! If you don't...then you have to repeat your commitment for the month of December (including getting three friends to read our book and come to book club).

To encourage reading! And discussion! It's really so much fun. I hope you'll join us and participate in this contest. Good luck!


  1. Kim - I invited a friend of mine from another ward (and she was totally excited - she couldn't stop talking about how much she liked this play). I hope its not breaking rules to invite non MU2ers ... but hey ... the competition is on!

  2. That's right, Katie! The competition is on! You invite anyone you'd like.
