Read an E-Book Week
Today marks the start of the seventh annual Read and E-Book Week, a not-for-profit week designed to inform the public about the pleasures and advantages of e-books, and encourage readers to give digital books a try. Read an E-Book Week was founded in 2004 by author, Rita Toews, and has since gained many supporters. During the week, thousands of e-books will be available for free or at significant discounts. To show your support for e-books and to find out more about the week and its offerings, refer to the website’s E-Book Supporters page.
