This Sunday March 8 marks the kick off for Read an Ebook Week, an international online literary event designed to raise awareness about the benefits of ebook reading. Smashwords is one of several sponsors.
During the week-long event, ebook authors around the world will offer their ebooks at deep discounts, or even free, to generate excitement about ebooks.
Participating Smashwords authors will offer their books for free, or for discounts of 25% or 50%. Smashwords authors can enroll by visiting the Read an Ebook Week enrollment page.
Participating authors will benefit from inclusion in a special catalog appearing on the Smashwords home page during the week. The catalog will also be available in the Smashwords bookstore on Stanza, the #1 most downloaded e-reading app for the iPhone and iPod Touch.
Smashwords will also publicize the event in a press release, a member mailing, and in other promotions.
