#LockdownReads | #TuisblyLeeslys

28 སྤྱི་ཟླ་གསུམ་པའི་ 2020

Today we're launching the NB-Uitgewers/Publishers #LockdownReads Campaign! | Ons begin vandag met NB-Uitgewers se #TuisblyLeeslys-veldtog!

“With books you can travel without having to leave home. Read and stay safe.” – Rudie van Rensburg Boeke

Due to the devastating COVID-19 pandemic, we are all spending more time at home to protect our fellow humans. Your social calendar may be empty, but you can never get too lonely if you have books to keep you company! Given the nationwide lockdown, you won’t be able to fill your bookshelf with paper books, but the good news is that you can still set your mind free with our wide selection of eBooks and Audiobooks.

Follow us on social media and subscribe to our newsletter for reading recommendations during lockdown: http://www.nb.co.za/en/newsletter-sign-up

A common misconception is that you need a special device to read eBooks, but you don’t need a Kindle to enjoy all your favourite books in digital form. You can download the Amazon Kindle, Kobo, or Snapplify app on any device and South Africans can purchase our books from any of the following platforms that will remain operational during the lockdown:
Amazon Kindlehttps://www.amazon.com/Kindle-eBooks/ (Readers can download the Kindle App on any device, and do not need to purchase a Kindle device to be able to buy and enjoy eBook.)
Kobohttps://www.kobo.com/ (Readers can download the Kobo App on any device, and do not need to purchase a Kobo device to be able to buy and enjoy eBook.)
Snapplifyhttps://www.snapplify.com/ (Readers can download the Snapplify-app on any device, and do not need to purchase a eReader device to be able to buy and enjoy eBook.)
Takealothttps://www.takealot.com/books/ebooks (In order to read the eBook, you need to have a compatible device, register for an Adobe ID and download the eReader from Takealot.)

You can also buy audiobooks at Audible (https://www.audible.com/) and listen to them on your computer, tablet or smartphone. Download the Audible app and start listening. You can sign up for Audible’s monthly subscription or you can buy books one by one – no strings attached. We have also partnered with Netwerk24 and their subscribers will have access to select audiobooks every month at no extra cost (https://www.netwerk24.com/Web-etikette/Onderwerpe/luisterboeke).

NB Publishers has a wide selection of eBooks and audiobooks - brand new publications and absolute classics - that will help the 21 days in lockdown to fly by. We would like to make special mention of Deon Meyer’s Koors, also available as eBook, which imagines the world after a devastating coronavirus sweeps through it (Read this interesting article: https://www.news24.com/Analysis/deon-meyer-imagining-a-post-apocalyptic-post-virus-world-20200326).

We’ve grouped our selection into themed recommendations and will be adding more collections shortly. Take a look below! The full list of our available ebooks and audiobooks will be made available on our website: https://www.nb.co.za/book/DownloadExtract?fileId=21641
