Labor Day Cybook Special at BooksOnBoard


To celebrate Labor Day, BooksOnBoard is offering a special on all Cybook Ultralight eBook Readers through the weekend. BooksOnBoard’s Cybooks – already $70 off list price – will come with an additional $10 in Rewards Dollars, for a total of $35 Rewards Dollars for anyone who orders before midnight CST on Monday, September 1. Rewards Dollars can be applied to any eBooks and downloadable Audio Books in the online store. The special also includes a free SD card pre-loaded with 100 eBook classics from Abbey House Press, a green publisher and BooksOnBoard partner.

According to Bob LiVolsi, BooksOnBoard CEO, “Our Cybook customers quickly get addicted to their new toy. It is half the weight of the leading e-ink competitor, a big difference when holding an eBook reader for long periods of time while reading. Plus it uses the popular Mobipocket format and can hold hundreds of eBooks at one time.”

Cybooks differ from other eBook readers in a few significant ways. The Cybook is the lightest reader with an eInk screen, weighing in at 6.13 oz. The Cybook is a non-proprietary device, which means Cybook owners can purchase eBooks from any store that sells MobiPocket format eBooks. The Cybook also supports other formats, including non-DRM PDF and MP3 files.

“We like anything that advances eBook reading,” said Susan Kiser, publisher at Abbey House Press, “eBooks offer significant advantages, including portability, convenience, and no negative environmental impact, a very important factor to our publishing house.”

Nathan Johnson, BooksOnBoard Director of Operations, said, “We’re seeing a lot of student buyers of Cybooks, plus many folks over 45 who like to expand the font to make it easier to read. And a lot of commuters are looking for a way to bring lots of books on their travels.”
