This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I think AppWidgets will not get updated more often than once every 30 minutes. If you need more frequent updates you need to set up a repeating alarm using the AlarmManager, and then handle the alarm intent in your widget's onReceive method.
