The Summer Reading Contest Finalists

We at Figment enjoy summer reading, but it’s summer writing that really gets us going. So, we challenged you to write a story about some classic summer experiences–and we put some big prizes on the table to entice you to take a break from your pool going and put a pen to paper.

Ten lucky writers will have their stories published in a NOOK Book™ compilation and featured in the NOOK Bookstore™! One grand-prize winner will also receive a NOOK Tablet™ – 8GB, Barnes & Noble’s fastest, most powerful tablet. Two runners-up will each receive a $25 Barnes & Noble eGift Card.

We tallied the votes, and these are the 25 finalists who will be considered for the NOOK Book™ compilation. Congratulate your fellow figs, and wish them luck in the judging!
