Caught in the middle again: Read an eBook Week continues

leave a comment »

Read an E-Book Week 2011We are smack dab in the middle of Read an E-Book Week 2011, which started Sunday, 6 Mar, and ends on Saturday, 12 Mar.  If you haven’t started reading you eBook in celebration of Read an E-Book Wee, now is the time to begin!

I’ve been participating in this event for three years now.  During Read an E-Book Week, each day I read from an eBook, finishing the entire book during the week.  This week I’m reading a book published in 1849 by renowned historian Francis Parkman.  He wrote about his adventures as a 23-year-0ld in The Oregon Trail: Sketches of Prairie & Rocky-Mountain Life.

It’s kind of hard to believe that eBooks are 40 years old.  40!  That’s how long ago Michael S. Hart created the first “eBook”.  Now his Project Gutenberg site is one of the best in the world for locating eBooks.

Today the eBook world is growing and becoming just another way to read.  Join us during Read an E-Book Week. You’ll be happy you did!
