Read an eBook Month in Canada

Happy Read an eBook Month Canada!!

March 2012 has been declared the first Read an eBook Month in Canada!*

Way to go Canada, for being at the forefront of innovation!

Why not be the trend and celebrate!?

Take a look at my eBook!

Flash Bites: a few short, short stories is available at:

Indigo Kobo

Amazon Kindle

Barnes & Noble Nook

Smashwords

iTunes (search “bunskoek” at your iTunes store)

Even if you don’t have an eReader, you can read eBooks. Click on the Kobo link, for example, and you will be able to download a free app for your computer, tablet or smartphone!

(I know, it’s pretty darn cool!!)

Oh yeah, about the book:

This book of selected short, short stories (under 1,000 words) contains genres from sci fi, romance to adventure, and each can be read in 10 minutes or less. So, why not put aside that obsessive email checking for just a moment, pick-up my debut Flash Bites: a few short, short stories, and take a break?

And about me:

Born and raised on the wet west coast of Canada, in Vancouver, BC, I love to read, to write, and to play with innovative stuff like eBooks and social media! And, like you, I’m very busy, so I’ve written a book that I’d like to read – one that I can finish in a sitting or two!!

 *According to ebookweek.com:
“By virtue of an Order by the 41st Parliament of Canada, First Session, Motion M-293 was passed declaring the month of March Read an E-Book Month.
The Order reads:
That, in the opinion of the House, the government should: (a) recognize that the ePublishing industry has created economic opportunities for entrepreneurs, authors, publishers and e-reader manufacturers; (b) recognize that e-books present significant benefits for seniors and children; (c) recognize that e-books are an environmentally-friendly alternative to books; (d) declare the month of March as “Read an E-book Month”; (e) support the goals and ideals of “Read an E-book Month; and (f) encourage Canadians to observe “Read an E-book Month”. “
 
(although I could not find this directly on the parl.gc.ca website, I think it’s a good idea, and I support the Motion, whoever brought it forth!)
