BooksOnBoard Goes for Gold with Olympic eBook Discounts


Olympic titles top the eBooks and Audio Books discount list at BooksOnBoard this week as athletes of the world prepare to launch the Beijing Summer Olympics this weekend.

“The Olympics lets the world see friend and foe as human and heroic,” said Bob LiVolsi, BooksOnBoard CEO. “For a moment in time, nations come together in non-deadly competition and sportsmanship. With eBooks and downloadable audio books, readers can take a virtual library of Olympic titles with them to the Olympics themselves or for other travel - or whenever away from home – without an excess baggage charge.”

Olympic titles include Forward to Beijing! A Guide to the Summer Olympics by Verner Courtenay Bickley, The Olympics by Matt Christopher, and The Naked Olympics by Tony Perrottet about the ancient Greek Olympics.

With the theme “One World, One Dream,” the Beijing Summer 2008 Olympic Games begin this Friday, August 8.

“Part of this ‘one dream’ has to be a concern for the global environment, for other nations and future generations,” offered Susan Kiser, publisher of Abbey House Press, an environmentally friendly publisher of eBooks. “EBooks are green – and that message is becoming more and more critical to our ‘one world’.”

Other Olympic eBooks and audio books at BooksOnBoard include Olympic Fusion, an Olympic tale of intrigue involving the KGB by Scott S. Pickard, Berlin Games: How the Nazis Stole the Olympic Dream by Guy Walters, The History of the Olympics by John Goodbody, and Rome 1960: The Olympics That Changed the World by David Maraniss.

Biographies of Olympic athletes include the inspirational story of swimmer Jenny Thompson, 8-time Olympic gold medalist in Fast Lane to Victory by Doreen and Michael Greenberg, gymnast Carly Patterson’s autobiography Carly Patterson: Be Strong, and Marion Jones: The Fastest Woman in the World by Bill Gutman.
