Read an E-Book Week

This week is National Read an E-Book Week. I feel a bit like a traitor for announcing that, but there; it's done.

Why should you care? Because this is your chance to visit several online publishers to check out their absolutely free (or deeply discounted) e-books titles. You'll find an extensive listing of partner sites, publishers, authors, and booksellers at the official site.

For lovers of picture books (yay! he's back! pluckin' that old one stringed banjo!) you'll find some terrific titles over at Sylvan Dell, including a free full-access look at Pandas' Earthquake Escape (doesn't work too well in AOL; other browsers seem fine).

While at Sylvan Dell, definitely check out their grant program, which allows schools and libraries access to all their books in e-book form.
