ADDITIONALLY: Smashwords has joined in! Read their blog about it here. Clicking the link will provide instructions for publishers, authors, and deployed service members who would like to be involved.

Authors with ebooks, or authors who can make their books available that way, this is an incredible and easy way to offer some troop support. I know my husband would have loved having such endless, and free, reading material during his down time in Iraq and Afghanistan.
