Scholastic @Storia_eBooks Giveaway!

John with his lunch for Monday and the Storia eBook it’s based on: Learn About Weather: Snow
 Unless this is the first time you’ve been here I’m sure you already know what HUGE fans John and I both are of Scholastic’s new eBook service, Storia. When I was growing up I would always get excited when the Scholastic Book Fair happened at school or those Book Club order forms would get sent home to my folks. John started to get those same order forms sent home with him when he was in preschool and I always try and make sure that he has at least one item with his name on it when the orders come in.

Now we don’t have to wait!

With Storia eBooks I have 24-hour access to their online store where I can always find a great book to add to his “bookshelf.” And he loves them. The app download is free and comes with five books of varying reading levels. This isn’t just a beginning reader app … this goes from 3 up to 14! (And even older if, like me, you still enjoy a well-written “young adult” novel from time to time.) Some of the books are even enhanced with added bells and whistles and activities for the kids to click on!

From Scholastic’s online press kit:
 You can also check out the far more complete “About Storia" page!
(Not sure if you’re device is compatible? Give them a call at 1-855-STORIA1 — they have AMAZING Customer Service reps and I’m sure they could tell you!)

Now a cute pic of John and some of his Storia-inspired lunches:

And NOW the big huge exciting news!

I contacted the good folks at Storia via Twitter not too long ago and asked if they would be willing to sponsor a giveaway here at What’s In Our Lunch Bags? 

I was thinking maybe a couple of books ….

They’re giving 20!!! 
That’s right, boys and girls. One extremely lucky reader will be receiving their choice of TWENTY Storia eBooks to load onto their virtual bookshelves! Perfect timing for the holiday season, too! 

Have more than one kid? No problem. You can set up multiple bookshelves within the app easy peasy lemon squeezey (as John would say)!  
Storia will be providing a list with over 100 titles to choose from. I must admit, I’m more than a little jealous of whoever wins. I would probably stock up on books John would enjoy reading now and grab a handful for when he advances in his reading skills a bit more!

Entering the contest is as easy as a couple of comments. They are both mandatory entries. If you don’t do them, you don’t win.

MANDATORY ENTRY #1: Follow Storia eBooks on Pinterest and leave a comment here with your Pinterest username so I can check.

MANDATORY ENTRY #2: Follow Storia eBooks on Twitter and leave a comment here with your Twitter username so I can continue to stalk you.

That’s it! No need to share (although that would be nice) or to like or follow me (although those would be nice, too). 

Leave those two comments any time between now and 11:59 PM ET on DECEMBER 10, 2012 (which happens to be my birthday — I like giving stuff away on my birthday) and on December 11th I will notify the winner of their awesomeness. (Which means that I need some way to contact you. If your email isn’t linked to your profile or I don’t somehow already talk you on a regular basis, I need to now how to get you.)

PLEASE NOTE: At this time, Storia is available to be downloaded by anyone in the United States and those with APO/FPO addresses only.  Sorry my international peeps!
