So what is International Read an eBook Day?!
 
The first International read an eBook day was celebrated in 2014, put together by major eBook distributor, OverDrive. It was founded as a way to encourage reading amongst people of all ages. Books are now available at the drop of a hat, or perhaps, merely the tips of our fingers where our phones are! Through the invention of the eBook, we are able to read on so many kinds of devices, and at a more affordable price. (So long as you have the technology to go with it!)

I’ve had the pleasure of working at Head of Zeus for coming up to two years now, and one of the things I have most enjoyed during my time at the company has been my induction into the world of science fiction and fantasy as I became at first familiar with, then eventually fan girl of, our science fiction and fantasy list curated by Nicolas Cheetham. In my time here I’ve toured the UK and witnessed J.K.Rowling-level fandom for Cixin Liu, author of The Three-Body Problem, marveled at the mind-blowing wisdom of Ken Liu, and raised one-too-many glasses with A.J. Smith at Fantasy in the Court. But nothing could have prepared me for the weird, wonderful, and incredibly welcoming community at Worldcon.
