You know something’s important when it gets its own week. In fact, this year marks the sixth occurrence of Read-An-eBook-Week, an annual literary event designed to promote eBooks and draw widespread attention to the companies, authors and communities involved with digital publishing. This year, the event will take place March 7-13. The official Website of Read-An-eBook-Week is http://ebookweek.com, where you’ll find resources and information about what’s going on.
In a statement, Rita Toews, founder of week said,”The mission of Read an E-Book Week is to raise international awareness about the benefits of eBooks to authors, readers, educators and the media.”
Smashwords will be one of the main sponsors of Read-An-eBook-Week. Aside from discounts on eBooks, Smashwords will also feature a special eBook-Week catalog on its home page. Here’s more from the Sashwords blog, and we’ll keep you posted as we hear about other details.
