ghost is well-respected
Give a book review, win a free Kindle. No purchase necessary.

I came across this. I have to admit, it's a little shady.

The author was giving away a Kindle Fire and signed copies of his book. How do you enter? Simple, you give his new novel an Amazon Review.

The kick? No purchase necessary. Just the review is fine.

I'd say its more than a little shady. Despite the authors good intentions he is in reality buying reviews. Two of the five star reviews admit they are "looking forward to reading the book" and "hope I win the contest."
