Look what’s going to be an ebook…

Harper Lee has signed on for Scout, Boo Radley and Atticus Finch to enter the electronic age.
Filling one of the biggest gaps in the e-library, “To Kill a Mockingbird” will become available as an e-book and digital audiobook on July 8, HarperCollins Publishers announced Monday. Lee, in a rare public statement, cited a “new generation” of fans in agreeing to the downloadable editions of her Pulitzer Prize-winning classic.
"I’m still old-fashioned. I love dusty old books and libraries," Lee, who turned 88 on Monday, said through her publisher. "I am amazed and humbled that `Mockingbird’ has survived this long. This is `Mockingbird’ for a new generation."

Austin Kleon’s Newspaper Blackout can now be read on a screen! I mean, you’ve probably seen bits of it on his tumblr but this here is the ebook and I’m so glad we’ve finally been able to make it available. Newsprint never looked so good.

As we descend into the final week of our staff picks ebook promotion it’s time to bring out the big guns. calmorgan's been tooting Further Adventures' horn since we published it in 2009 as a newly revised “author's cut.” Delivering plenty of belly-laughs, Jon Stephen Fink gives us The Green Ray, a different kind of superhero who is due to come out of retirement to save the worl—or at least some folks in Mason, New Mexico.

A friendly reminder that you can get this ebook (and others) for $1.99 until March 4th. Then, I’m afraid, you’re on your own. But if you have a question you can ask Cal. After that though, you’re really on your own.

Now I think it would just be plain rude of me to send you off on a lovely weekend without a sweet ebook deal. SO, here’s Ravi Howard’s Like Trees, Walking, which Kathleen recently read and selected for our staff picks. This debut novel takes you back to 1981 in Mobile, Alabama, where a nineteen-year-old boy’s body has been found, beaten and hanging from a tree. The city’s first lynching in more than sixty years, it’s a tidal wave that crashes down on everyone and is a gruesome reminder of racial inequalities in the New South.

You have until March 4th to download this “emotional punch” for $1.99, but if you do it right now you’ll be able to spend the weekend with it! And then you can send Kathleen a message with any comments or questions. Win win!

This week brings more staff picks from the Harper Perennial team, and today we have Mary’s: Miss Timmins’ School for Girls. Mary has a great eye for the colorful and fast-paced, and this debut novel from Nayana Currimbhoy is that in spades. Now until March 4th, you can have the ebook for $1.99, which is a small price to pay to get swept away to the drama of a small town in India during monsoon season.

As always, our ask box is open if you have any questions or comments for Mary!

Our next staff pick comes from Gregory, who selected Carol Shields’ Collected Stories as his favorite. This collection, gathered and introduced by Margaret Atwood, extends from discovering the mundane to swirling about in wonder, all with a mix of humor and poignant observation. It also includes Shields’ last story written before her death in 2003, a graceful “Segue” for her, and for the reader.

This is available now (until 3/4) for $1.99 in ebook. If you want to chat with Gregory about his pick, feel free to drop us an ask!
