'Tis the season for a good read.
New York, New York (PRWEB) November 28, 2013
For mystery and thriller publisher Le French Book, ‘tis the best season for a good read. All the festivities call for a break--a real break from it all, the kind readers get from a great book. For the occasion, Le French Book will price a selection of e-books at $4.99 from Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day.
To accompany these great holiday prices for blockbuster fiction, Le French Book provides some advice on how to survive the holidays.
- For holiday-goers snowed in at the airport, a whodunit from the Winemaker Detective series offers a perfect escape. Treachery in Bordeaux by Jean-Pierre Alaux and Noël Balen takes readers on a journey to French wine country with a lot of gourmet attitude.
- Digesting turkey on the couch improves with an adrenaline-pumping read such as The Bleiberg Project by David Khara. It’s an action-packed ride to save the modern world from a Nazi conspiracy.
- An afternoon snow-blowing the driveway calls for a global warming thriller. The Greenland Breach by Bernard Besson has a cracking ice cap, rival multinational corporations, cut-throat espionage and gadgets galore.
- What kind of table conversation for the mother-in-law? A psychological thriller set in France, with suspense, sense of place and…, well, murder, could work well, couldn't it? The Paris Lawyer by Sylvie Granotier is an ideal fit.
- Who doesn’t dream of New Year’s Eve in Paris? Prize-winning http://www.the7thwoman.com is set in the glamorous City of Light, where a serial killer is at large.
How to gift an e-book
Here is a guide to sharing those e-books with friends and family.
- To gift an e-book, the giver needs to know where the reader usually gets his or her e-books: Amazon (Kindle), Barnes & Noble (Nook), or Apple iBooks (iPad, iPhone or iPod touch). Unfortunately, offering an ebook or a gift card on Kobo is not available for the time being, as they are making some changes on their website.
- For Amazon and Barnes & Noble, on the book's page, on the right-hand side, there is a link “Give as a gift,” “Buy as gift” or “Send as gift.” It’s really that easy.
- The gift-giver then provides the receiver’s email and a personal message, and can choose when the give will be delivered.
- Note for Apple iBooks users: If the gift receivers read on an iPad using iBooks, there is no easy way to give them a book directly. It is possible to offer a gift card that they can use to buy one or several books for their account. This is done on iTunes. In the right-hand side column, there is a button Buy iTunes Gifts, with a choice of e- or print. Gift-givers can choose the amount and add a personal message pointing to the book they want to give.
