Book Beat: Full Book Access Online ... and it's FREE


By Kimberly Baldwin

In hopes of boosting book sales, HarperCollins has started offering free electronic editions of some of its titles. Right now, and through the month, you can check out: Paulo Coelho’s The Witch of Portobello; I Dream in Blue: Life, Death, and the New York Giants by Roger Director; Mark Halperin’s The Undecided Voter's Guide to the Next President: Who the Candidates Are, Where They Come from, and How You Can Choose; Mission: Cook!: My Life, My Recipes, and Making the Impossible Easy by Robert Irvine; and Warriors: Into the Wild, the first volume of the bestselling children’s series by Erin Hunter. Did I mention that you can view these books in their entirety ... as in the same way you might flip through the pages at your favorite bookshop? Additionally, HarperCollins is helping create some pre-sale buzz by offering up to 20% of its many new titles online at least two weeks before the actual "on sale" date. No excuses, get reading!

hello!
I'm a big Paulo Coelho's fan and I don't know if you heard about his blog
http://www.paulocoelhoblog.com
I've started as a fan and now I'm collaborating with him and thought that you would like to enter his universe.
Check the blog.
if you want, or subscribe to his newsletter
http://www.warriorofthelight.com/engl/index.html
You'll see a community of warriors of light sharing ideas, dreams and most importantly following their personal legend.

QUOTE OF THE DAY:

"In love lies the seed of our growth. The more we love, the closer we are to the spiritual experience"

Have a nice day!
