This week, we’re kicking off a “Topic of the Week” series.
How it works: We will designate one topic each week, and each person who asks a question relating to that topic will be eligible to win a prize.
How to enter: Ask a question relating to the topic of the week, and tag it accordingly (this week, use the "ww1" tag). Each question you ask will get you one entry into a random drawing to win a book of your choice (under $50). It can be a book about the topic that week, or anything else you've been wanting to read! Paperback, hardcover, or books for e-readers like Kindle are all fine.
Choosing the topic of the week: For this first week, we decided to go with WW1 (see the discussion here). But for all following weeks we want to take suggestions from you! It can be a war, time period, or any other significant historical event. Leave your suggestion as an answer to this meta post, and the topic that is voted the highest at the end of each round will be the topic of the following week.
Each round will be announced Monday morning at approximately 10 am EST.
[Edit]: World War 1 Week is now over. Congratulations to DVK for winning! We don't have a topic picked for the next contest yet, so if you have suggestions, please leave them as answers to this meta post.
