Read an E-Book Week: Still time left to get a free E-Book!

As we near the end of Read an E-Book Week, I just want to comment on how wonderful it has been for me to delve into the world of E-Books and learn all about authors who are offering free E-downloads during this occasion. I have been enjoying the free E-Books but I have enjoyed even more learning about authors and E-publishers out there.

In honor of Read An E-Book Week, some authors with E-copies of their books have offered them for free. Sites which sell E-Books have either offered a free download or E-Books marked down at low prices. Some writers have been promoting Read an E-Book Week through their blogs, newsletters, sites and bulletin boards. This is, by far, not just a special occasion where E-Books and their authors get to have center stage, but writers also get to join in on promoting it. While the goal of Read an E-Book Week has been primarily to draw international attention to E-Books, it is also just one more way to get more people to read books (even if they are electronic books). The fact that many authors are offering their books for free is even better. I have encountered some people who say "well, I've never read an E-Book, but in honor of the occasion, I might as well give it a try." And more people are willing to "give it a try" if the E-Books are free. With such a tough economy and everybody trying to pinch pennies, it makes sense to go after free E-Books during this special week. You get more books without paying a cent! (I am just as enthusiastic at building my electronic library of books as I am on building a library of print books.)

I am glad I was able to do this blog series to celebrate the week and it's been a great experience to learn all about those great E-Books and E-Book authors we wouldn't otherwise get to hear about.

Today I downloaded a free copy of the novel Dream or Destiny by Lillie Ammann
