Thank You from Read Tuesday

Thank You

The first ever Read Tuesday (a Black Friday type of event just for book lovers on Tuesday, December 10) is quickly coming to an end. If you haven’t missed it (some books may be on sale until midnight PST, if not longer), you still have a chance to catch the savings.

If it’s already passed midnight Pacific Standard Time, you might want to know that Misha Burnett (author of Catskinner’s Book and Cannibal Hearts, in the mature section) opted to run his sale a little longer, hoping to catch a few latecomers who missed the party. Chris McMullen’s books (check here for Kindle and here for paperback) will be on sale thru the 11th. A few other books may still be on sale for a little while after the event. (Perhaps other authors whose books will still be on sale on the 11th will post a note in the comment section to let any stragglers know.) You only have to wait a year for the next Read Tuesday.

As the event winds down and will soon be over, the purpose of this post is to express gratitude:

  • Thank you to everyone who bought a book on Read Tuesday.
  • Thank you to everyone who gifted a book on Read Tuesday.
  • Thank you to everyone who checked the event out, even if you didn’t buy a book.
  • Thank you to everyone who told a friend about the event.
  • Thank you to everyone who commented on the Pinterest pages.
  • Thank you to everyone who left comments here at Read Tuesday.
  • Thank you to everyone who posted, tweeted, reblogged, or retweeted about Read Tuesday.
  • Thank you to everyone who liked or followed Read Tuesday.
  • Thank you to everyone who displayed the Read Tuesday logo.
  • Thank you to everyone who participated in the 20 questions or wanted posters blogging activities.
  • Thank you to everyone who help promote literacy and reading, even if you weren’t involved with Read Tuesday.
  • Thank you to everyone who loves books.
  • Thank you to every author who entered a book into Read Tuesday.
  • Thank you to every author who provides good reading.

I will make one more post tomorrow to try to surmise in which ways the event may or may not have been a success. Just after the event, when the results and problems are fresh on our minds, is the best time to gather ideas for what we liked and what improvements we might make. Look for this post tomorrow. It will be a good time to share any feedback.

Thank you all so much. I hope you had a wonderful Read Tuesday.

  1. I picked up a couple of books for myself. I had to remind a buddy that his books were not discounted this morning, and only the print copies were able to be discounted in time for some of today. Maybe next year reminder emails for participants 7-10 days, and maybe again at 4-5 days out would be good?

    • Thank you for taking part, and for reminding your buddy. Also, thank you for the suggestion, it’s a good one. I will put it in my notes for next year.

      I also bought several books today. When I finally got a break, I really enjoyed going through the catalog and checking out these books. πŸ™‚

  2. Thank you so much for this opportunity. I sold a few more than expected today. I like to think it was the Read Tuesday event πŸ™‚ I know I bought more than I sold πŸ™‚ Ho Ho Ho!
