Random House Children’s Books will be releasing ten of author Judy Blume’s well-known (not to mention often controversial) children’s books as e-book titles on March 21st. The titles include Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret, Blubber, and Tiger Eyes. Three more titles, including Freckle Juice, will be published at a later date.
Blume, currently living in New York City, said in the press release, “This is an exciting day for me. I’m happy that my readers, many of whom have been patiently waiting, will now be able to choose which format works best for them to enjoy their favorite books.”
Checking on Amazon, it seems the e-book prices will be pegged at equivalent to the paperback prices—$8.99 for Tiger Eyes, $6.99 for Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret. Good news for those who think e-books should be less than $10, though not so much for those who think they should be less than paperback.
