This is one contest librarians should join. The contest started a few weeks ago, but even though it's sponsored by Philippine Daily Inquirer and National Book Store, it's not available on either sponsor's website.

I wanted to launch a "Get Caught Reading" contest two years ago, but never quite got past the planning stage. This new contest means that I can actually join! Now if I can just find the time to do everything I need and want to do...
