Free-Range Kindle!!

Yes, “Free-Range dshbryzkzi
Kids: Giving Our Children the Freedom We Had Without Going Nuts with Worry”
is available on Kindle. Right here. For $13.18! The book Whoopi Goldberg said to read because “you’ll learn a lot, you’ll laugh a lot.”

Can’t get better than that!

Ok. Plug done. Back to our regularly scheduled blogging soon! — Lenore

    Sorry, but after hearing what Whoopi Goldberg had to say about “rape rape”, I’d be looking for new spokesperson to quote. I certainly won’t be buying anthing she recommends ever again.

    Lenore, do you have any say with the publisher about pricing? There’s a large Kindle movement to avoid anything priced over the “standard” of $9.99. I’d highly recommend trying to hit that $9.99 price point.

    Hah, was going to say exactly what SB said.

    I don’t know anything about Kindle pricing, although it sounds like Michelle is raising a point worth considering, if indeed you have any say at all in the matter. But regardless, the fact that you have a great quote from Whoopi Goldberg is a wonderful thing; the fact that your book is available in different media is a wonderful thing; you have a cause worth fighting for, and the savvy to get your fight well publicized. Congratulations!!!

    If you watch the entire video that’s online, you’ll see that Whoopi was merely pointing out that Polansky was not actually charged with rape, which was true. She said nothing that condoned his actions. The media hype made it sound like she said what happened to the child was not “rape, rape,” but that was not what she was referring to. We should all know about media hype by now.

    Congrats Lenore. Now if it would only become available in another venue — in the New York Public Library system — that would be even greater (and yes, I wrote in on to recommend its purchase).

    LG- Keep bugging your library system. The OCPL has multiple copies available and to my knowledge no one even had to ask for it.

    Seriously people, way to deflate a good-feeling moment. Let’s complain about $4 and worry about who Lenore is quoting rather than congratulating her on another success. Congrats, Lenore!

    I agree it is a feel-good moment, the book should have a bigger audience. You don’t have to agree with every Lenore has done to understand the larger concern. For instance in her book I wouldn’t necessarily choose her source of information when talking to my children about sex and mature relationships. I would choose a different source then her though. The point is you need to guide them. It’s our obligation.

    The DRM on the Kindle makes nothing about it ‘Free-Range’. See for example

    Yeah Lenore!!! Most excellent. Will you do a CD book too? I also recommend you begin a stand up comedy tour. You’d be a huge hit.

    *SB, I agree*

    **LG**, ask your local library to perform in “interlibrary loan” for you where they can search all public library systems in your state for the book. They will send it to your branch, free of charge, for you to pick up. Worth a shot.

    See, now I’d buy a kindle for that… 🙂

    not entirely sure you want whoopi’s endorsement, given who else she’s defended lately… but still good news.

    I got a Kindle for my birthday and now I have something worth spending money to put on it. Thank goodness!

    Actually, I love my Kindle. But I had become addicted to the library and I’m having trouble spending money for books that, if I wait long enough, I can get for free at the library. But I’ll probably buy your book anyway, Lenore, because I’m not sure the 2 year wait time after acquisition and the long hold list will make me happy. I really do like the Kindle’s instant gratification!
