Confusion. Does leaving a comment constitute an entry? I don't see anything else to fill out, and no other links to follow.

Here's my comment! I would love to have this set! I had a copy of Mistborn, but I gave it to my mom who had wanted to read his books and I haven't had a chance to replace it yet (and I haven't gotten the other ones yet either, what with WoT and WoK) :)

sounds awesome. Sign me up
D. D. Syrdal
113. JHalcyon
I absolutely adore these books! A set of hardcovers would be amazing, but based on the approximate retail value listed in the rules they must be paperbacks. Still excellent books, no matter how they're packaged! Until the rules are clarified, I'm hoping this constitutes an entry.
114. TorSaric25
My friend just "borrowed" mistborn. It took 8 months to getthe last book back! (Good friend, but annoying reading habits.) I dont have a personal copy of the last two though. I want these!
D. D. Syrdal
115. Arn
Would love a set to gift to my brother. I know he would love the books, but there is no way he can afford them right now.

Well, follow the link to "full details & rules," which has a link to fill out "this form," which link back here, so I'm hoping that a comment is all it takes. Would love hardcopies of the series! (I own every BS book digitally, and have most in hardcopy but NOT the Mistborn saga. Will be a great addition)

Since "fully completing the sign-up form found on the Site" is not clearly defined I am going to assume it requires a joke. So I'll just quote the funniest source I know, thus completing my sign-up form.

The Texas Tax Code Rule 3.366 (a)(1): Definition
1. Internet--collectively the myriad of computer and telecommunications
facilities, including equipment and operating software, that comprise the
interconnected worldwide network of networks that employ the Transmission
Control Protocol / Internet Protocol, or any predecessor or successor protocols
to the protocol, to communicate information of all kinds by wire or radio.

Funny stuff.
