Read An E-book Week

Yes, I'm a convert! Since Santa brought my Kindle last December, I've been lovin' me some ebooks.

Of course, it helps that all of my books are also available in electronic versions. (Just click on the title of this blog post to go to my author page on Amazon!) In fact, The Sidhe Princess and High Seas Deception are currently only available as e-books. So when I heard that this week had been designated as "Read an E-Book Week" I was excited to participate!

Part of the beauty of e-books is that you don't have to own an e-reader to enjoy them. You can read them on your laptop, your desktop computer, even your phone!

As part of the celebration, SmashWords is hosting a special promotion. Lots of authors and publishers are offering discounts on e-books through the SmashWords catalog for this week only. It's a great opportunity to try some great new authors and try some new books for bargain prices. I'm offering my newest book, High Seas Deception at 25% off. Just go here: and use coupon code REW25.

What are you reading right now? What book are you looking forward to reading?

I'm so glad you've converted! It's so easy to carry your entire library with you when you go to work, or in your case, Cindy, on a cruise!

Right now, I'm reading (nonfiction) QUIET by Susan Cain, and (fiction) UNBROKEN by Jamie Lisa Forbes.

Hi Suzanne!

You are sooo right about it being easier to carry lots of books with you. I used to only take a couple, not I can take dozens! :-)

Speaking of cruises... on my last two, I noticed way more e-readers than in the past. Of course, I seriously doubt anyone is going to leave their Nook or Kindle on their chaise the way they used to leave books. LOL!

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your latest reads.

Hey Aunty Cindy,
I'm catching up on some X-Men comics.
