$4.99 eco fiction

One of the lovely thing about e-books is that they can be offered at a much lower price than traditional paper books. For about the price of a venti latte, Kidnapping the Lorax is available at Amazon for kindle and Barnes & Noble for nook.

I'm not sure what the paperback version will cost when it is available, but I will be sure to let you know!


Kidnapping the Lorax is the story of three young environmentalists who kidnap the Secretary of the Interior and take her to the Pacific Northwest woods to reeducate her, in the belief that once she sees the forests as they do, she will start making the correct decisions for the land. But will all go as planned?

  1. I'm waiting for the print version. Haven't committed to an ereader yet - I'm just old school I guess.

  2. $4.99? A value at twice the price! Funny, intelligent, and a darn good read!

  3. I'm looking forward to the printing - no e-reader here. Sounds like a great story!

  4. Is it true that e-books come with pre-highlighted passages? If so, one more reason for us to stick to print. I look forward to owning a signed copy. Sounds great.

  5. Highlighted passages? I don't think so, but then again, I don't own one of those new-fangled devices. But I've heard of at least one e-book that, sprinkled throughout the text, has links to Internet sites where you can get more info. Wouldn't an e-reader be a great thing to have on vacations and plane rides? Think of how many books you could carry...

  6. I will have to find your book! Tonight I'm making a much-needed trip to the library so I'll look for it! I don't know about Kindles yet, but I use a TON of books on CD because I live 45 minutes away from where I work!

  7. Thanks, Ranger Kim, but you won't find it in your library yet--it's not even been released in paper-book form yet--only as an ebook. Paperback is coming, though! I'll announce on this site when it's finally available. And then, if you'd request that your library buy it, I'd surely appreciate that!
