Oh, no! Did you miss Read Tuesday? There might still be hope…

Happy Sad


Soon, Tuesday, December 9, 2014 will be history. Read Tuesday is an annual event like Black Friday, but for book lovers.

If you missed it, there may still be hope:

  • First, if you’re reading this post on the night of December 9, there might still be a few hours left.
  • Second, many of the participating books are on sale for one or more days beyond Read Tuesday, so some books might still be on sale. (This is a wise practice for authors to pick up a few latecomers to the party.)
  • Third, if you’re really late, there is always 2015. Maybe you’re not a week late. Maybe you’re 51 weeks early. Buy yourself a 2015 calendar and circle Tuesday, December 8, 2015 so you don’t miss it next year.
  • Fourth, we may have some other book sales going on during 2015. For example, we’re considering quarterly events. Follow the Read Tuesday blog or follow us on Twitter so you don’t miss out.

In case you happen to read this post when one of the first two options apply, following are the links to the Read Tuesday catalog pages.
