Excerpts re-posted from Mark Coker at Smashwords (blog.smashwords.com/2013/03/read-ebook-week-kicks-off-at-smashwords.html) and Read an E-Book Week (www.ebookweek.com).
Read an E-book Week, the world’s largest global celebration of e-books, kicks off this Sunday, March 3 and lasts through Saturday, March 9. In support of this celebration, authors in every genre are offering free and deeply discounted e-books. Please visit the Smashwords special promotions page beginning March 3. Also, visit ebookweek.com’s Deals and Steals page for more!
The week-long celebration of e-reading is the brainchild of Rita Toews from Winnipeg, Canada. Each year under Rita’s volunteer leadership, the Read an Ebook Week website becomes a clearing center for authors, publishers, retailers and device-makers offering special one-week ebook giveaways to help attract new converts to the joys of ebooks. The celebration is also a favorite for device-owners who like to stock up their readers and tablets with deep-discounted books.
Whether you participate as an author, publisher or reader, visit the official Read an Ebook Web Site to learn more. Also visit their banners page where you can download RAEW banners, badges, buttons and bling to promote your participation on your blog or web site. The graphics are available for both English and Spanish.
