Unusual Kindle ™ Promotion Marks a Turning Point in eBook Evolution

June 24, 2013

In an unusual promotion, the Center of Artificial Imagination, Inc., a publisher based in San Francisco Bay Area is giving away print edition of Amazon Memoir "Inside the Giant Machine: An Amazon.com Story" with the purchase of the Kindle edition.

San Francisco, California (PRWEB) June 24, 2013

The Center of Artificial Imagination, Inc., a leading publisher based in San Francisco, is running a kindle ebook promotion that is the first of its kind—they are giving everyone who purchases the Kindle edition of the Amazon memoir Inside the Giant Machine: An Amazon.com Story the print version of the book for free.

This unique promotion, which is hosted at http://www.unusualpromotion.com marks the beginning of a turning point in the Book 2.0 evolution with launch of the Kindle eBook reader in 2007.

So far, it has been common for media retailers and publishers to give away the digital form of media free with the purchase of the physical form such as book, DVD, or CD. By giving away the physical form of the book with purchase of the electronic Kindle edition, this unique promotion acknowledges the many advantages of a book’s digital form, such as its Kindle format.

“I am very pleased to see that my publisher is acknowledging that, given the current state of technology, the electronic format of books, such as Kindle, has many advantages over the print format,” says Kalpanik S., author of Inside the Giant Machine. “You can access the ebook in Kindle format almost from anywhere in the world from your Kindle cloud, and read it on a multitude of devices such as your smart phone with a Kindle App, your Kindle eReader or even a browser without worrying about ever losing it. There is no weight to be carried around or mailed other than a Kindle which can easily fit in your back pocket. And if you live in the tight living spaces of a modern metropolis, having your library stored on a Kindle or Kindle Fire device, which can fit in your pocket and is automatically backed up, is a great advantage by itself. I encourage everyone to visit http://www.unusualpromotion.com and take advantage of this unique offer”

Inside the Giant Machine: An Amazon.com Story holds an average rating of 4.2 at both Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk. Authored by a former Amazon technologist and developed from a blog, the book shares the inside scoop behind Amazon’s impressive machinery. Kalpanik S. tells the complex story of his journey working within Amazon in a quirky but relatable manner. His creativity and humor shine through, leaving his readers thoroughly entertained.

“The book is fast paced and easy to read, the author a likable guy,” says a review at Amazon.com by Linda Linguvic, a Hall of Fame reviewer. “Especially interesting to me was the Amazon.com working culture, which was indeed hard on the employees as Amazon created the mammoth business that it is today.”

Another reader, George A. Butler, from Redwood City, describes how “each of the hundreds of times” he purchased something at Amazon.com, he wondered at how smart the people who got it working must have been. He says the author’s depiction of the company invoked the same feelings as one gets towards a chess-playing software that can win against human players: “You acknowledge its superiority but don't admire it.”

“This book does more than share facts and statistics,” says Linda Q. Chan, a reader based in San Francisco Bay Area. “It shares the story of how the average modern-day man navigates his way through a massive corporation and comes out on the other end in one piece and with his sense of humor and determination still going strong.”
