It's READ AN EBOOK WEEK!

Betcha didn’t even know there was such a thing, did you? Well, there is and we’re going to celebrate it in style!

Ebooks have only been around a couple of decades and, as many of you know, have found acceptance only in the last few years. Dedicated readers are slowly giving way to multi-use mobile devices to the point where there are no more excuses for not having a book with you all the time. As long as you have your smartphone, Ipad, Blackberry or netbook, you have an entire library at your fingertips.

This week, the world sets some time aside to celebrate this accessibility. To help out, I’m offering a free download of Kara’s Captain, a tale of love that spans two centuries and two modes of reading. Robert Walton comes from the pages of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Kara Godwin is the woman he hopes will save him from obscurity (read more in the sidebar). What better way to celebrate future than by reading a story that pulls together the past and the present?

To get a free download of Kara’s Captain, leave a comment sharing with us your favorite ebook of all time (and no, it doesn’t need to be one of ours). At 9:00 pm EST on Friday, March 18th, I’ll put all your names into a hat and my own handsome husband will draw not one, not two, but three lucky winners! Names will be posted here shortly thereafter.

Hooray for ebooks! Play safe,
Diana

I read Karen Marie Moning's Darkfever as an ebook (while reading it as a paper book - when I could find one or the other) and Pride and Prejudice (totally as an ebook). Loved them both! My first book published in 2004 was an ebook at a time when I had to explain to people that you didn't print the whole book up to read it! Thanks for celebrating Read an Ebook Week!

Hey there "Just" Nancy!

Sounds like I need to add Darkfever to my TBR pile -- thanks for the head's up! And Pride and Prejudice is in my top five all-time favorite books no matter what the format.

You're welcome!

Well, Nancy -- looks like my offer fell on a lot of deaf ears. If you'll email me at diana@dianahunter.net, I'll send along your free copy of Kara's Captain!
