E-book Week Contests - 2013

Read an E-Book Week is fortunate to have sponsorship from E Ink this year. They will provide two e-readers as prizes during the week, as well as hosting several contests on their social media site on Facebook.

March 5th Contest for the Kindle Paperwhite:

Which organization is providing e-readers and e-books to children in Africa? Send your answer to

The answer is Worldreader. Our winner is Gary L. of Texas.

Did you know you can donate your used Kindle to Worldreader? These e-readers provide almost immediate access to hundreds of thousands of books, from textbooks to bestsellers. Some e-readers also have added features such as text-to-speech for new readers, the vision-impaired, or children whose parents cannot read or whose native language is not the language of instruction. And, digital distribution makes possible the publication of much more local content, including newspapers, magazines, flyers and newsletters, health and voting information.
