 width=Michelle France, of Shelbyville, was selected as the winner of the Lake Land College Amazon Kindle Giveaway.

France, who is in the administrative assistant training program, said she is ecstatic to receive the Kindle because her favorite pastime is reading murder mysteries.

“I have so many books at home, it’s not even funny,” said France. “Now, I’ll be able to take my entire library with me wherever I go!”

France was selected as the Kindle winner by a random drawing after she entered the contest by “liking” the Lake Land College Facebook page. After a few short questions, France along with 755 other contestants were put in a pool that randomly generated the winner.

“I never win anything, especially something like this,” said France. “I never really expected to win, but I was hoping I would because I’ve been researching the Kindle for quite a while now, wishing I’d be able to get one sometime.”

The next novel in France’s murder mystery queue is “The Prey” by Allison Brennan.

“Murder mysteries are by far my favorite read because it seems like the pages just don’t stop turning,” said France.

The Amazon Kindle is an electronic book reader that uses a wireless Internet connection which allows readers to shop for, download, browse and read electronic books, newspapers, magazines and other media.
