Thumbs up Read an E-book Week is now a MONTH!

Sent to me by Rita Toews, founder of Read an E-book Week: She has lobbied the Canadian government, with fantastic results:

Quote:
Great news! 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".
Rita goes on to say:
Quote:
"I'm proud to see that Canada has taken steps to recognize the innovation of e-book entrepreneurs and the value this new technology brings to society."
And just as we were wondering what great new thing we'd be able to bring to REBW 2012!

How about a better website which makes it a lot easier to find all the free eBooks and discounts for Read an eBook Month?
