Betsy-Tacy Digital Books

April 26, 2011 @ 2:32 pm | Filed under: ,

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).

    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!

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

    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?
