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.

When I move soon I will have cable tv after not having it for 2 years. I am interested in the Viggie thing to get points. If you have a buddy code that gives you credit, would like to sign up for it. I read all three of the Hunger Games books. While violent, it was a good read. The movie was missing some, but that is typical for movies from books. Your etsy products are great! congrats on your weight loss. I am sorry t o hear about your pain issues. I have a lot of pain, too.

If you have problems holding books from your carpal tunnel problem, you can get your Dr to sign to get free digital book player from Sacramento for free. You can DL books like the hunger games for free online from the state library for the blind.”Persons certified by competent authority as unable to read or unable to use standard printed material as a result of physical limitations.” The link is: http://www.loc.gov/nls/signup.html. This has been a great help to me because I am legally blind and have pain and cannot hold large print books. Let me know if it all worked out for you and I would be glad to email with you. I am strait single and I have a lot of gay men friends. ~Sherry
I don’t know if Viggle offers me referral points because I can’t find it in the app. I have Facebook friends who use Viggle, but can’t seem to figure out how the friend thing works. Viggle crashes whenever I tap the friends thing anyway.
I have a Nook so I don’t need a free ebook, and I usually have it set to a large enough print so I can read it. I don’t have trouble holding it. But thanks for the tip. I have gotten so many free ebooks from Barnes & Noble and I have an extensive library of ebooks that I still haven’t read yet, but hope to one day.
