Used Kindles for Schools?

I'm writing on behalf of the teachers of the Pleasant Ridge Union School District - they have asked for Kindles/Nooks in order to help engage those K-8 students who are falling behind in reading. So far we haven't been able to get them any new e-readers, and I was hoping to start a program that donates used Kindles and Nooks to schools. You can read about the e-reader program at our Education Foundation website: http://www.pleasantridgeeducationfoundation.org. If anyone out there wants to make a teacher's day by donating their used Kindle, you can send it to Pleasant Ridge Education Foundation, 13440 Countryside Ranch Rd, Grass Valley, CA 95949.

I hope this works!!

My latest review is up. This one starts during the second world war, but continues into post-war Palestine. A drama and a romance.

Have a read: http://papyrus.calebblake.net/2012/1...liam-e-thomas/

Hello

Here's another blog post to help you sleep. http://wp.me/pJIxY-aG it's for #the next best thing which is doing the rounds. Unfortunately it's about my books (yawn). There are links to five varied and excellent authors at the end though. ;-)

Cheers

MTM

epubs of the classics

I have created a project (http://www.flagadoo.com/epubs-of-the-classics/) to create pretty epub books of the classics from the text sources in Project Gutenberg. Essentially, I am focusing on:
1. Pretty quotes
2. em and en dashes
3. italics
4. chunking one chapter per HTML file.

I would appreciate any feedback from you.

After spending the past year or so promoting my wife's books I've come to realize that there aren't a lot of places to promote non-kindle books, especially if they are fantasy, horror, or sci-fi (which happen to be my favorites).

Because of that, I've created a site that does exactly that. I post free fantasy, horror, and sci-fi books for Kindle, Nook, and Kobo, every day. One post per day per device.

If you're an author and want to submit a book (it's free) please check out the author section of the site.
