TOR is one of the largest science fiction and fantasy publishers in the world and there is another compelling reason to do business with them. If you have purchased in the past or buy a new print edition you can now get the e-book for $2.99.
Tor Books has just announced that they have forged a new partnership with Vancouver, BC based BitLit, a free app that lets you download digital copies of your paper library. By partnering with BitLit, they have made it possible for you to be able to download an e-book for any Tor/Forge book you own in print!
Peter Hudson the CEO of BITLIT told Good e-Reader exclusivly “I’m incredibly excited to be adding Tor/Forge titles to the BitLit program. I’m a big Sci-fi fantasy fan, so adding Tor made a huge swath of my shelf eligible for digital upgrades. I’m also really excited that we’re able to provide Tor e-books DRM-free.”
In order to redeem your TOR/Forge books you need to download the BITLIT app for iOS or Android. Take a picture of your bookshelf (a.k.a. a “shelfie”). The app will identify all of your books and tell you which books are eligible to bundle. Take a picture of your name on the copyright page to claim your bundled e-book.
