Read an E-Book Week-Read an eBook; Support a #Teacher

It’s Read an E-Book Week! Otherwise known as; Read an eBook, Support a #Teacher

Read an ebook week

First conceived by author Rita Toews more than nine years ago as a response to the stagnant acceptance of electronic reading, Read An E-Book Week has slowly built a strong international following among digitally published authors and readers alike.

This year’s event, which began March 5th and carried through to March 11th, brought authors from eleven countries together for a week of e-reading. Many organizations continue to celebrate this event all month-long with e-book reading events and activities.

Read an E-Book Week works to educate and inform the public about the pleasures and advantages of reading electronically. Authors, publishers, vendors, the media and readers world-wide join in the effort to spread the love of e-books with families everywhere. Read more about the history of this event and the history of e-books HERE.

Here’s the e-book that helps Teachers

What better ebook to share than the one myself, my team members and MCBD Co-Founders (along with some pretty amazing bloggers and children’s literacy advocates) created ourselves!
