Digital Influence Group contacted me recently on behalf of SONY. Would I be interested in giving away a SONY Reader Pocket Edition™ valued at $199.99 on Writer Unboxed? If I agreed, I would also receive a reader, as compensation for our participation. Win-win!

The reason for the promo is to introduce SONY’s Words Move Me website to a larger readership. The site’s goal, according to SONY is “to celebrate the words that move us and to share our reading experiences with others.” Visit the Words Move Me site and you’ll have the opportunity to create an account, then insert moments or memories you have about books that touched you. What emotions did they evoke?

Digital Influence Group asked me to participate, so I registered at Words Move Me, then considered which books have touched me and why. I chose five to share–some tried-and-true, some new–and mentioned a range of emotions, which you can see for yourself here.

So how can YOU win a SONY Reader? No purchase necessary to enter or win. Odds of winning are not increased by a purchase. Instead, you just have to share with us here in comments three literary memories and how they made you feel. Be sure you mention books’ titles and authors. One winner will be chosen from all valid comments left between now and Friday, November 20th, and will be announced next Monday.

Once you’ve submitted your comments, why not check out the Words Move Me website for yourself? Read through others’ comments or add your own. The site really is a great way to share literary experiences with others who love to read. And SONY didn’t even ask me to say that.

Good luck, everyone!
