2010 Summer Escape Reading Contest

There's nothing like reading a great book in the lazy days of summer, especially when you have a chance to win some great prizes...

Starting June 14, tell us the title of a book you've read and be entered to win $50 Book & Brier gift certificates. Regular draws will take place at all RPL locations throughout the months of July and August. The Grand Prize - an evening at Beer Bros Bakery & Cuisine along with tickets to the Globe Theatre - will be drawn on September 10.

So don't forget to pick up your entry forms from any RPL branch or if you prefer, bookmark this link to enter online.

This contest runs from June 14 to August 31 and is only open to Regina and area residents.



Trevor is our first winner for identifying Regina's Chad Boudreau as the author of the graphic novel Psychosis.

Next question: What is the nationality of Jason, the author of I killed Adolf Hitler?

First correct answer sent to will win a ComicReaders gift card!



I have a few ComicReaders gift certificates to give away, so I thought I'd do a comics-graphic novel-manga mini-contest in honour of the arrival of warmer (good reading) weather. So here's the first question:

Name the Regina native who wrote the graphic novel Psychosis.

First correct answer wins; send answer to (type it in; I don't trust this link!)

Fabulous Films in February Contest

Very off topic but I thought I would pass this news on about a contest that is happening at the RPL Film Theatre with their ‘Fabulous Films in February’.

Each time you enjoy a film at the RPL Film Theatre in February, you can enter a draw to win 1 of 2 Weekend Getaways at the Wingate! The more films you see, the more chances you have to win.

The promotion started on Friday, February 1 and will and run until Friday, February 29th. The contest is open to anyone who buys an RPL Film Theatre admission so don't forget to tell your family and friends about this great contest!

In case you didn’t know, the Wingate by Wyndham is the newest hotel in Regina and is located at the corner of Saskatchewan Drive & Broad Street.
