Our Weekly Special for Kids is a book full of both delightful illustrations and a whole lot of info as we look at baby animals from puppies and piglets to puggles and poults. You can pick up this wonderful volume at a 20% savings with free shipping, but only if you order this week.
Like many bookstores we're struggling with decisions about how to profit from the rising popularity of ebooks. As we determine our course of action we thought we'd ask you for your thoughts on ebooks to help us make the best decisions.
If you would just take a moment to respond to these questions by replying to this email we'd be very grateful. We've also got an ebook form on the website which you can use if you prefer.
If you don't have an ebook reader and have no plans to get one, we'd like to know that, too.
1. Do you own an ebook reader or expect you'll have one before the end of the year? Is it or would it be a Kindle or something else?
2. If you have an ebook reader where do you buy ebooks? About how many would you guess you buy in a year?
Thanks for your help.
