It’s That Time of Year: Read an eBook Week, 4-10 March

leave a comment »

March is here and that means it’s time for Read an eBook Week. This is the event’s ninth year.

Read an eBook Week 2012 Ad

From the web site: “Read an eBook Week was first registered with Chase’s Calendar of Events in 2004. Chase’s is a day by day directory of special days, weeks and months used by event planners or anyone looking for a reason to celebrate. By having the week officially recognized, eBook authors and publishers acquired a certain extra ‘legitimacy’ during that week to promote the new technology of eBooks. The public and media were initially wary of eBooks and many doors were closed to promotion. With the week officially recognized by Chase’s, authors reported they now had access to television morning chat shows and were allowed to set up library displays during the week-long event.”

Read an eBook Week educates and informs the public about the pleasures and advantages of reading electronically. Authors, publishers, vendors, the media and readers world-wide are welcome to join in the effort. “We encourage you to promote electronic reading with any event,” according to the web site. These could include: public readings, library displays, reading challenges, school visits, newspaper and blog articles, chat show appearances, internet radio interviews, e-book give-ways, and banners on your website.
