Read Tuesday will take place Dec. 10 and will feature thousands of books from readers’ favorite writers and publishers available at discounted prices.
“Read Tuesday will be a huge day like Black Friday, but for buying and gifting books at sale prices,” McMullen said. “It will also be a great way to help improve literacy and encourage someone, especially a child, who doesn’t read much to read more.”
Discounted books make good gifts because e-books are easy to gift and returns are not a problem with most retailers, McMullen said. E-books can be delivered instantly, but deliveries can be scheduled and there are no shipping and handling problems.
“Read Tuesday is a great opportunity for authors, small publishers and booksellers to benefit from a holiday sale event,” he said. “I’ve heard positive feedback from over a hundred different authors, plus a few small, indie publishers who will be participating. I’m hoping this number will grow as we get closer to Dec. 10, the date of the event.”
