Fans of all things digital should mark March 7th to 13th in their calender, because starting from today it’s Read an Ebook Week!
Recognized since 2004, “Read an E-Book Week educates and informs the public about the pleasures and advantages of reading electronically” — make sure to check out the list of participating online bookstores offering either free or discounted ebooks throughout this week!
Then it struck me: why not take advantage of this week to encourage not only ebook reading, but online reading in general? This is a perfect time for us authors and readers of webfiction to toot our own horn a little!
So what are you waiting for? Spread the word! Promote Read an eBook Week in whichever way tickles your fancy: through public readings, library displays, reading challenges, school visits, newspaper and blog articles, chat show appearances, internet radio interviews, e-book give-ways, strip teases, and more.
[Twitter fiends, the accepted hashtag is #ebookweek and you can follow @ebookweek to keep appraised of new developments!]
And while you’re at it, tell me: what are your favourite electronic reads?
