My eBook’s New Cover

Now actually featuring the title and my name, wa-hooo.  I really rushed getting that sucker posted.

Got Junk?

You do NOT need a Kindle to buy my eBook!

Sorry for the back to back shameless self-promotion posts…people kept asking, here’s the answer.

To read my book you do not need a Kindle.

You need whatever you are reading this on now.

So, a computer, an iPad, an iPhone, an Android.  Just go to the link below, purchase it and it will ask what device you want it sent to.  Then just go download the Kindle reader App on whatever device you picked.

(You can use it on multiple devices if you’re splitting time between say a computer and iPhone.)

Buy it (and review it!) on Amazon here.

My Author Page On Amazon

My Amazon Author Page is finally updated.  What do you think?  Remember, my love of cheese can not be understated.

After Tom Acox graduated from St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, PA,
he authored a College Prowler guide to make sure all his favorite
college haunts would live on (they didn’t, R.I.P Muddy Duck).

He has written for Metro Newspaper in Philadelphia and New York City and was even able to get a free meal or two as Philadelphia Weekly’s Food and
Drink man in the street.

Currently, you can find him working on economics textbooks or
making whiskey in his apartment in the Lower East Side of Manhattan.

A lover of BBQ, graphs, Mexican food, beer, statistics and cheese in alternating orders, Acox writes daily at http://www.theunqualifiedeconomist.com; occasionally at http://www.popblerd.com; and inappropriately at @ThatTomAcox.

The Future of eBooks is the Past

I am not surprised.  This is sort of like the culmination of folks who wrote in the margin of ancient manuscripts, Wikipedia, crowd sourcing, message boards, and well, graffiti.  Still, this is awesome.

Public Notes

Book Extras are available to readers on the Kindle and Kindle apps for iPad, iPhone & iPod Touch, so get your extras out there.

Kindle users can now make their book notes and highlights available for others to see. As an author, you can connect with readers in a new way as you annotate your own books and the books that influence you.

Seth Godin and Karen McQuestion are among the authors who have added Public Notes to their own books.

My New eBook, Got Junk?, is on Amazon!

You can download  my eBook, Got Junk? here or by clicking the original cover below.

The book recounts my real life job working in Philadelphia for the biggest junk hauling company in the world (yes, they’re global).  The idea was to have a fun time while paying the rent in grad school.  The people we got to meet, the stuff we got to throw away [and keep] and the ridiculous things we did made this one of the most interesting summers in my life.

Last I checked I was selling in the top 2% of eBooks (#18,000 out of 750,000 eBooks).

The book is $2.99 and you CAN read it on ANY device.  It works on computers, iPods, iPads, Kindles, and Androids.

If you don’t have a Kindle, DON’T FREAK OUT. 

All you need to do is download the free Kindle app for whatever device you have.  Just start to buy the book and it will ask you what kind of device you need the app on.  I know you’ve got something because you’re reading this!

The Amazon description, etc is being expanded/updated as I had to post something when the book launched.
