Read a book, help an aquarium
My good friend Chris Howard has just released his recently published novel Seaborn in freely available PDF and HTML formats. Although they can be downloaded and read without charge, he does ask people to consider making a contribution to his favorite institutions, the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institutions. Of course, people who want to hold a physical book in their hands can still purchase them from Amazon, Barnes&Noble, Borders, etc. I vaguely remember reading somewhere recently that authors who release free eBook versions actually see an increase in sales of the physical versions of their books. It’s a win for everybody. Brilliant!
Check it out here. Oh – and it’s a great book too, very well worth reading!
