"Read An Ebook" Week - Discounts and Freebies



This week is "Read An Ebook" week, a week-long celebration of ebooks with discounts and freebies across the web. So if you're looking to stock up your reader, now is probably a good time. This is an annual event, but I've only had my Kindle since September, so it wouldn't have caught my attention last year.

Smashwords.com is just one of the sites which has given authors and publishers the chance to make their ebooks available at a discount for the week - from 25% off to completely free. (They also have a number of free books all year round - I've found a couple of real gems for free.) I've listed Rebellion at 50% off - just enter the code RAE50 at the check-out.

Tell your friends! The promotions are only running until March 12th.

I think we are the only people left on the face of the earth who don't have a kindle!

Ginny- you can download Nook for PC or kindle for pc for free so you don't miss out on free books. I don't have an ereader, either, but I don't mind reading from my laptop.

That's a good idea. Especially following the steps of World Book Day. Many thanks.
