It’s hard to go a few hours—let alone a lifetime—without Facebook. Unfortunately, that terrible fate is something Queen Elizabeth, Honest Abe and Henry Ford had to suffer through. We can only imagine what it was like for them, but Wylie Overstreet put fingers to keys and channeled history, as told through Facebook status updates. The History of the World According to Facebook is as close to required reading as you can get without enrolling in classes. If you were waiting to pick up your copy of the book, or your friend “borrowed” it after spending too long in your bathroom, you’re in luck because we have 10 copies to give away courtesy of Harper Collins and us.
In order to win one of the 10 copies of the book, check out the The History of the World According to Facebook page to enter the contest. While you’re there, make sure you click on the little Like button near the top because Facebook hasn’t rolled out the Love button yet. Plus, your witty retorts to book excerpts will actually get read if you leave comments—unlike the comments in the books lying around in your bathroom that no one reads. The way we see it, everyone’s a winner. 10 winners will be chosen to get free copies of the book on 10/28.
