Short Take: Amazon contest for Grisham book awarding $25,000

In the latest example of the extremes of the Net book war, online bookseller Amazon.com is running a contest to go with the release of John Grisham's new legal thriller, The Street Lawyer. The company said it will give away a year's worth of law school tuition, or $25,000 in cash, to one winner. The first chapter of the book is posted on Amazon's site.
