…but you have to own them, ebooks has always been the solution for me. Libraries are great, and so are used bookstores, but sometimes I want brand-new. Thing is, I can’t afford them. Well, I can afford a few, but for the same amount of money I can buy several ebooks instead of one hardcover.
Fictionwise has a cute marketing gimmick right now, using last week’s market crash:
eBook Bailout Plan Saves the World??
Last week the stock markets had tanked 20% and the world was spiraling down into certain depression. Not content to leave the fate of the planet in the politician’s hands, last Thursday Fictionwise launched our eBook Bailout Plan: 50% Micropay Rebates on every single title in our store when paying by credit or PayPal. And guess what? On Monday the Dow Jones Average spiked 936 points, the largest gain in history, and world markets responded in kind!
Coincidence? That is for history to judge. To be on the safe side, we have extended our eBook Bailout Plan only through Thursday, October 16, or until we give away $700 billion in rebates, whichever comes first. So don’t wait! We’ve done our part: come load up your shopping cart and buy today!
So if you’ve never tried reading an ebook, now’s the time to try one. You don’t have to read an ebook on your computer, you know. You can read them on your Blackberry, your Palm Pilot/Phone, your iPhone, and any semi-dedicated reader that uses a wonderful new technology, eink.
