Subject: Creature now in e-book - The wait is over
2013 May 18 from G. Edward Griffin
Creature from Jekyll Island
Now in e-book format
I am partial to physical books that you can hold and place on a shelf. There is nothing quite like looking at a row of books that have been your personal teachers and storytellers. They are like old friends who bring back memories of good times.
THE MEMORY HOLE
Then there is that thing about the "memory hole" described by George Orwell in his book, 1984. When it was published in 1949, it seemed farfetched to think that governments ever could cause historical information to disappear from official repositories or that they could rewrite history. Now, with the advent of digitized text and online reference sources, such as Wikepedia, this already is being done. It's for these reasons that I have been ambivalent about electronic books.
Ah, but times they are changing! The convenience of accessing thousands of books from a small, portable device is so compelling that e-books now account for 44% of all books sold, and the trend is accelerating. Hardly a day goes by without someone asking when we are going to release our books in electronic format. That day has arrived.
THIS IS A NEW VENTURE FOR US
Our first entry in this category is our all-time best seller, The Creature from Jekyll Island; A Second Look at the Federal Reserve. This 608-page book is available for Kindle and also for Apple devices. The price is $22.99 from either source.
Even if you prefer physical books, you probably know someone who is an avid reader of e-books. Please do us and them a favor by forwarding this announcement. Consider, also, that it might be the perfect gift for a friend.
Order the Kindle version from Amazon here.
Order the Apple version from iBookstore here.
PUT YOUR MIND AT EASE
We have no intention of discontinuing the book-shelf version. In fact, we are heartened by the fact that demand for the traditional format continues to be strong. Even if there is a future attempt to put The Creature into the memory hole, there will be at least a half-million hard copies (by current count) that will not disappear. Incidentally, if you would like to have one of those, either for your personal library or to lend to friends, it is available here.
