By posting a question about the book on the forum where the promotion is running during its timeframe (Tuesday→Friday). Any posts on that forum during the appropriate timeframe are eligible for the promotion, even posts unrelated to the book.

We send out email announcements each time a new promotion is started, and we announce on Twitter @coderanch, and Google+, and we put an announcement at the top of the forum. It's really easy.

Or answer or reply. It's not just questions that are eligible. We do the random draw from all on topic posts in that forum. It doesn't have to be related to the book, but "thank you" isn't enough .

The reason that answers/replies count is to encourage discussion.
