eReadLocal at Kobo US

eRead Local promotion from Kobo in the USHere’s a wonderful promotion that I learned about while at NINC, which is available to those of you in the US. Kobo wants to encourage you to shop at indie bookstores, many of which sell Kobo e-reading devices. eRead Local also is a drive to get more readers to sign up for Kobo accounts. Here’s a bit more detail:

  • Aug 22 – Nov 29, Kobo is launching an exciting 100-day incentive program for local, indie bookstores, “eRead Local”
  • For every new customer that signs up for a Kobo account affiliated with a bookstore, that store will receive $5 USD. The customer will also receive $5 USD credit towards their first eBook purchase
  • Stores that acquire 100+ new customers will be entered to win a Kobo-sponsored event featuring a bestselling author. Stores that acquire 50-99 new customers will be entered to win free eReaders
  • After a customer’s account is affiliated with a bookstore, a portion of every Kobo purchase they make goes straight to that store

From where I sit, this is totally win-win. You get a credit to buy the books you want, and your fave indie bookstore gets a credit from Kobo.

I don’t need to remind you that ALL of my books that are available in digital editions are available from Kobo. 🙂

You can read more about the promotion on the Kobo Writing Life blog, right here.
