You may have noticed that the Tea-Time Tips and Suggestions and the 101 Daily Dissertation Writing Tips ebooks are no longer available through the To Do: Dissertation website…
This is because I have transferred them to Kindle editions!
If you don’t have a Kindle, you can still purchase these ebook editions and download one of the free Kindle apps from Amazon’s website. With apps from Amazon, you can read Tea-Time Tips and Suggestions and/or 101 Daily Dissertation Writing Tips on your PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Blackberry, Android, or Windows phone.
There were several reasons I chose to do this:
First, I think that the multiple formats for reading a Kindle ebook means that I can make reading these texts more convenient for TD:D readers and dissertation writers.
Second, this is an easier (and cheaper) way for me to make these ebooks available to TD:D readers since I can self-publish through Amazon for free.
Third, transitioning the books to Kindle editions means that if I ever decide to close this site or have another blogger take it over, I can still offer the materials that I developed through the blog to readers under my name.
Fourth, this is a way for me to offer some of the TD:D tips and suggestions to a wider audience. The TD:D readership has definitely grown over time, but it’s not quite as big as Amazon.com…
You might also be interested to know that I’m publishing these ebooks under my real name and not “Happy Dissertating” (mostly due to some pesky tax reasons). So, if you check out the Amazon websites for the Kindle edition of either of the ebooks, you’ll find out my actual identity, something that I have not previously disclosed through the blog (although if you looked hard enough, you could probably figure it out). Googling my name will also allow you to connect with me through Academia.edu (to see what I’m publishing these days) or to network with me on LinkedIn.
You are welcome to come find me – I love connecting with TD:D readers and other academics from across disciplines.
Happy reading – and happy dissertating!
