Read an Ebook Week: March 7-13, 2010

Well, we are in the final days of Read an Ebook Week and I hope that everyone has been enjoying themselves. I know I have. My download count for the week so far is 6, and I might pick up a few stragglers over the weekend. My choices have been pretty diverse: some traditionally published authors, some epress authors, and a bunch of Indies, but all authors I have not read. I also picked up some genre stuff. I am mainly a literary reader with a penchant for horror, but this week I decided to try a cyber-punk novel -- also by an Indie author. So we shall see. It might become a new favorite. Who knows.

Here is the Podpeople updated list as of 3/12/2010. We would like the thank our Indie followers who have offered their books at a discount this week, and we would also like to thank all our readers who took a chance on them.

Journey's End by Emily Veinglory -- Free PDF download from her site.
The Mars Run by Chris Gerrib -- Free to read HTML from his site.

p.s. I am about 350 pages into Dan Simmons Drood, which was my first selection for the week. Let's just say that it is dense, very literary, very macabre, and not what you might expect to find in the traditional horror section of your book store.
