Author Rita Toews reached out to me recently and mentioned that Read an E-Book Week—that would be March 3-9—is currently in the process of gearing up for its 2013 festivities.

This will be the event’s 11th consecutive year, by the way. And Toews tells me that any author, publisher or vendor who’s interested in being a part of this year’s celebration of e-books is welcome to contact her via email, at r[dot]toews[at]shaw[dot]ca. Naturally, you’ll also want to keep your browser tuned to the event’s official website, where you’ll find information about everything from the event’s origins and the history of the e-book.

Incidentally, back in late 2011, the entire month of March became known as “E-Book Month” in Canada, so hopefully we’ll have all sorts of odd and unusual events to tell you about in roughly three weeks’ time.
