They'll also give $500 to the charity of the winner's choosing.
I'd choose it to go First Book. They give new books to kids in need.
Having seen schools as a student teacher that barely had a library and having been blessed with parents who rarely had to say no to a book purchase or a a visit to a well stocked library, I know how much of an impact having books can have. Anyway, First Book is active both in the US and Canada and has given away over 85 million books so far.

Oh..and as if that wasn't awesome enough, they will pick a winner from the folks who comment on the winner's post.
So, comment, y'all! I might win, and so might you!
