Betsy-Tacy Digital Books

April 26, 2011 @ 2:32 pm | Filed under: Betsy-Tacy, Books

Today’s a big day for Betsy-Tacy fans:

First of all, it’s Maud Hart Lovelace’s birthday…

And second, many of the Betsy-Tacy books are available as e-books for the first time today!

Yes, I’m excited. The more ways we can spread the Betsy-love, the better. Here’s what’s available so far for Kindle, Nook, iPad, and other e-readers:

Heaven to Betsy / Betsy in Spite of Herself (together as one volume, just like the recent reissues)

Betsy Was a Junior / Betsy and Joe (ditto)

Betsy and the Great World / Betsy’s Wedding

Carney’s House Party / Winona’s Pony Cart (Have I mentioned I wrote the foreword for that?) ;)

Emily of Deep Valley (Please, treat yourself to this one. It stands alone, and it shines.)

The four “younger” B-T books will be released as e-books on May 17th. You can pre-order them now if you like.

New to Lovelace? Here’s a A Reader’s Guide to Betsy-Tacy (and Carney and Emily).

  1. Emily of Deep Valley may be my favorite!

    Your foreward is what brought me to your blog!

  2. Thanks for posting this today. Just yesterday I was trying to think what chapter book to read to my 5.5 year old daughter who is ready for something a bit more than Magic Tree House but nothing too complicated plot wise. How could I forget Betsy-Tacy? Off to buy it today (no way we’ll get through it in a single library check out) and based on all your gushing it’s one we’ll want on hand. I never read this as a kid so I’m excited and have been waiting for my kid to be old enough and then nearly forgot!

  3. It’s like a dream come true!!!! Lol.

  4. It is so exciting, looking forward to curling up with my Nook and Betsy later tonight!!

  5. I’d sure be tempted if I didn’t already own all the hard copies!

  6. That info makes my day, I loved Betsy-Tacy growing up!

  7. Yay! Just saw this. I was one of the ones clicking on Amazon months back saying, “I’d like to read this book on Kindle!” Wonder if it helped?
