Two questions:
Were can I find (afterwords) the meaning of participants about the books?
Do I need the book first to get (eventually) a second one?

OK I THINK I know what you mean.
1. The author of the book will be participating in the relevent forum for the period of the give-away tue-fri.
2. You don't need to have read the book .. just ask or respond to RELEVENT topics within the relevent forum.
this week the forum is the XML forum. So if you're interested in that subject scoot over there and take part.

Angela, you understood my second question, and gave a promissing answer, thanks.
First question differently stated: I saw the winners in the link given by Johannes (dank je wel!), but I wanted to see what the winners had written said about the topic. Is this to be found somewhere too?
E.G. Johannes: you won a book on feb 27 this year, and UML is just now for me HIGH priority, so I am very much interested in (e.g.) your meaning.
Oh, I may have got it: are these just the 'starting' topics in the relevant domein of the bulletin board?!
Private for Johannes: Ik heb je een gewone mail gestuurt, nog niet gezien?

Regarding the content of the postings of the winners, as far as I know the only way you can find out what they posted is by "slogging" trough all the postings for the week the giveaway was.
Ik reageer op je mailtje zou gauw ik op je URL ben gaan kijken.

You can do a "search" (see top of page) on the winner's first or last name limited to that particular forum to find all his/her posts there.
