Subject: Request for volunteers for PhD research

I would be most grateful if you would take a little time to help me in my PhD research by volunteering to read 4 short texts. This should only take you about 15 minutes. Please forward the message below to anyone that you think may be able to help.
Many thanks
Nick

Volunteers needed – Win a USB MP3 Player / Memory Stick
 
I am seeking volunteers to complete an online reading exercise, which should only take about 15 minutes of your time. There is a prize of a USB MP3 Player / memory stick for one in every 100 volunteers. This is part of a University of Liverpool PhD research project to investigate the structure of written text.
 
In order to take part all you need to do is follow this link (or copy and paste it into your browser):
 
http://linux.ece.ac.ae/~moore/nick   
 
fill in the questions about yourself, and then read 4 texts and answer the accompanying questions. Your answers will be anonymous. You will then be directed to a page that allows you to enter your e-mail address in order to have a chance to win a 1GB USB memory stick.
 
You may only enter the competition once, but you are free to pass on the link to family and friends to take part.
