Bah-humbug? No, Pitouie!

Did you get an eReader for Christmas? If so, here's a little extra Christmas gift courtesy of the Workhorsery...

Bookmineset readers can go here http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/33601, scroll down to choose your preferred format, hit “Buy” and enter coupon code: CN52Q, the end result is that you'll have a free Pitouie e-book! But please note, this deal is only good for Boxing Day (December 26, 2010).

The good folks at the Workhorsery realize that this isn't great time with the holidays and all and some people might miss the boat, so they're also willing to offer my loyal readership a slightly-less-better but still excellent deal: from December 27th to New Year's Day the e-books for both Pitouie and their first offering, Jocelyne Allen's You and the Pirates will be on sale at Smashwords at 50% (which means each book is just three bucks)!

For an e-book of Pitouie at 50% off: Bookmineset readers should go here: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/33601, scroll down to choose your preferred format, hit “Buy” and enter coupon code: WE39R.

For an e-book of You and the Pirates at 50% off, Bookmineset readers should go here: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/30856, scroll down to choose your preferred format, hit “Buy” and enter coupon code: HZ33S.
Finally: if people would prefer buying either book directly from The Workhorsery, they'll make sure the book they order is autographed by He or She Who Wrote It and they'll throw in some other random trinkets because they're nice like that and they appreciate people taking their books into their homes.

Enjoy the holidays while they last!

I just got Pitouie, sounds like fun. Thanks for the link and coupon code. I am guessing this would be Canadian but there is nothing about the author. Do you know.

He's from Toronto, or at least lives there currently. I interviewed him recently, if you want to check that out.

How do you autograph an ebook? There are so many things that perplex me.

Sadly, I didn't even receive a real book this Christmas, much less an eReader. But I did renew my library card!

Happy Boxing Day, John!

I got about 6 actual books this year, which I can't wait to start into. I did buy a Kindle for the Boy though. He seems to be enjoying it muchly.

Happy Boxing Day!

Barbara: I think the books they refer to in the last paragraph are real books. But I'm sure Margaret Atwood is somewhere in a bunker working on a top-secret way to autograph an eBook. She loves her fans, but that doesn't mean she should subject herself to having to touch something they might have touched. Eww.

Allison: I prefer real books too, but I did get an eReader this Christmas. So far I've downloaded the complete works of Shakespeare. I already own the real book, but it's a lot easier to carry the eReader and besides, it was free. Thank-you Project Gutenberg.
