Read an E-Book Week

Yep, that’s this week, March 6th-12th. The purpose of the week is to provide education on the ease and advantage of reading electronically. On the official website it says the first e-book came out 40 years ago! If you’ve never read one, I hope you’ll give it a try. I read on my Kindle every night, but don’t let not having a dedicated reading device hold you back. Before receiving my Kindle, I downloaded the app to both my laptop and my cell phone, but most e-books come in several formats so no app is needed. Many sites have specials happening this week, and there are lots of free reads out there. I have two with the Wild Rose Press. (Just scroll down the right side panel of my book covers and you’ll see them.)

This is also ‘party week’ around our place. We’re celebrating my mother’s 80th birthday on Saturday. Family is due to arrive later in the week, and on Friday, I’ll be making 20 lbs of Sloppy Joes and ten pounds of au gratin potatoes. My father used to make AWESOME potato sausage, which my mother loved, and just for her birthday, my youngest son (who has the recipe down pat) and his wife made 22 lbs of it for the party. There will be lots of other food and good family fun, so if you’re in the neighborhood, stop by! (She’s doing great with her chemo treatments and is looking forward to the event.)

I’m wrapping up the rough draft a story this week. I love finding out how the characters solve their problems and find their happily ever after. With that said, I’m off now, to pull up the manuscript and type away until it’s time to feed hubby.

Have a GREAT week, and DECIDE to be happy. That’s all it takes.

We're all promoting Read an Ebook Week!

I have the Kindle APP on my phone and have been reading more there than in books. I love it!

Happy Birthday to your mom!Have a fun family weekend!
