Polish Up Your Crystal Ball: Make a Prediction, Win a NookColor from Kirkus

In What's the Buzz by Edward Nawotka

To kick off the new year Kirkus Reviews is running a Facebook contest to see who can come up with the boldest predictions as to what will happen in publishing in 2011. The writer coming away with the most “likes” on their post by January 18 will walk away with a new NookColor and nine runners-up will receive a $50 Barnes & Noble gift card.

The catch? You must write your prediction in the traditional Kirkus book review format of 250 words, with a 140 character intro. You can find the contest and rules here.

Tip: Since you can only see the intro and the first few lines on the Facebook feed, make that intro as witty and kicky as possible.
