    I love the ebook voucher idea! On my blog, when I review a book I love to give it away. That often limits me to physical copies of a book. I would love that option to be able to give away an ebook voucher.

    eBook vouchers sound like a really light-weight way to travel to a signing! So many folks are ebooking (May I coin this or is it taken?), it only makes sense to work that angle, as well. Oh! Can you autograph a voucher?

    Mackenzie Bezos is gracious, as well as talented. Bravo that she quietly does her thing without making it a media frenzie. Each author must choose their path in publishing. In our writer’s group, one says they want to write for the folks who read to fall asleep so any publisher will do, while one wants to publish their own works, others want traditional publishers. I applaud Ms. Bezos for knowing what she wants, and sticking to it.

    After looking at the book murals I believe our farmhouse needs a face lift. Thanks for the news articles.
