The official Read an E-Book Week may be almost over, but we are taking advantage of the month-long version to celebrate the beauty and benefits of today’s children’s e-books. First, a bit about this unique event:
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 3th and carried through to March 8th, 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.

Then of course we have to mention our own top picks from the Audrey Press line-up! Our best-selling e-books for kids include:
The Ultimate Guide to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory: Ever wanted to explore a chocolate river or create gobstopper gum? The Ultimate Guide to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a front row seat to a delightfully illustrated and fabulously written children’s digital e-book.
