Since March 16, when the GNN Web site relaunched, 968 people have registered as GNN members. (Registered users can comment on stories, send messages to other users, and submit articles.)

User number 1001 will choose from the remaining, and so on. To register, simply click on the left side of the site where it says REGISTER.


The four hardcover books are:
