Swagbucks Book Club – Death Comes in Threes

Posted by on Fri, August 31st, 2012 at 10:00 am

Welcome to the Swag Bucks Book Club. Today we are discussing three captivating short stories: The Lottery by Shirley Jackson, A Good Man is Hard to Find by Flannery O’Connor and The Body by Stephen King.

But first I would like to thank everyone who voted on the poll last week to choose our next reading selection. Over a thousand people voted with the winning title taking in 42% of all votes. The winner is…The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson.  The Kindle version is available in the Swag Store for just 999 Swag Bucks.  New this week you can shop at the online book retailer alibris through Shop & Earn and earn 3 Swag Bucks per dollar spent.  Kobo users can also find good deals on eBooks through the Kobo store on Shop & Earn, just look in the Coupons & Deals section. Plus there is always Amazon Gift Cards or Barnes & Noble Gift Cards and your local library.  Regardless of what you choose I hope you will join us on Friday, September 28th when we discuss this best seller.

Now to today’s business, the discussion of these three thrillers.  I will post topics to discuss in the comments but feel free to pose your own questions. The discussion can last throughout the long weekend if you want to comment at that time.  On Tuesday I will choose 10 users who contributed to the discussion and hook them up with 25 Swag Bucks.
