Today is Green Eggs And Ham’s 50th Anniversary – let’s have a sale

Mild rant (that most should probably ignore): So this is the 50th anniversary of the first publication of Green Eggs and Ham, and 3 ebook blogs (EbookNewser, Teleread, and me) are celebrating the day by reporting on a sale. I find this a little sad. From the press release:

Oceanhouse Media, Inc. is dropping the price of their of award-winning Dr. Seuss iPhone / iPad / iPod Touch apps by 50% starting Monday, September 13th. This is a limited time offer in honor of the 50th anniversary of the children’s classic, Green Eggs and Ham.

The critically acclaimed book by Dr. Seuss, Green Eggs and Ham was first published in August 1960 and is the #4 best-selling, English-language children's book of all time. Dr. Seuss’s publisher (Bennett Cerf) wagered $50 that the author could not write a book using only fifty words. Dr. Seuss won the bet.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
