I bought my HTC One V for Virgin Mobile from Amazon in December and one of the first apps I installed was Viggle because a friend uses it and posted the advertisement on Facebook. I’m always looking for ways to get rewarded for doing things, like surveys, blogging, tweeting, installing and playing games and whatever else I can do. Well, Viggle gives you rewards just for watching TV and doing trivia during your shows.
Since December I have been racking up points. I had over 63,000 points and I was saving it for a really expensive reward, the Kindle Fire or Kindle Fire HD. The problem is, those are 482,500 and 560,000 points and well, let’s just say if it has taken me 6 months to get 63,000 points, I’m sure it will take me a long time to get the Kindle, so I figured I might as well pick a reward of lesser value for now. I decided to get the Barnes & Noble $25 gift card for 50,000 points. This is what I bought.
The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins for $24.49. I waited for a few days after getting my Viggle reward because I wasn’t positive what I wanted. I can’t recall exactly what made my decide on The Hunger Games, but I suddenly remembered that I wanted to read the books before seeing the movie.
I wanted to buy many ebooks at .99 cents each because then I could buy 25 ebooks, but I think getting this trilogy was better. It’s not the quantity of the ebooks that matter because chances are I’m not going to have time for all 25 ebooks, and who knows if I will feel like I made a huge mistake because the books aren’t quality writing. So I’m glad I bought this trilogy rather than a bunch of books I may not like. Although I’m not positive I will like the hunger games, but I know it is something that I am interested in so I’m sure I will.
I have started reading the first book, but haven’t gotten too far because I just didn’t feel like reading. I have to be in the mood to be able to really get into it, and I don’t want my lack of interest in reading to make me like or hate a book. I will wait until I’m ready to start reading it. I actually have a few other books that I’m halfway through that I would like to finish before starting another story.
Anyway, I just wanted to say that Viggle is a good app and this is proof that you do actually get rewarded for watching TV.
