It’s official—SitePoint readers love quizzes, and they love book giveaways even more.

First, we gave you multiple chances to receive a free copy of Jack Herrington’s pocket guide to Flex 3 (the dead-tree version). All you had to do was read an article or two about developing with Adobe Flex and take a short quiz.

Now we’re doing the same thing with Adobe AIR. We’ve just published the first of two articles on building applications with AIR, Learn Adobe AIR, Part 1: Build A Note Storage App, by Akash Mehta. Clocking in at over 4,000 words, Akash gives you a comprehensive tour of the AIR platform, taking you through how to interact with a database, manage events, create XML-driven dropdown menus and more.

Once you’ve read Akash’s tutorial, test yourself by taking the quiz. The first 100 people to complete the quiz will receive a free copy of the pocket guide, Adobe AIR For JavaScript Developers (once again, that’s the dead-tree version) delivered to your door.

And like before, we’re also making the book available as a free PDF download, so if you miss out on the print version, be sure to grab it in digital form!

So what are you waiting for? Go download the AIR SDK, read Akash’s article, then take the quiz… before the books disappear into thin AIR (sorry, I couldn’t resist!)
