Bill Bryson backlist launched as ebooks

19th April 2010

The books of bestselling author Bill Bryson are now being offered in a digital format.

Published by Transworld, Bryson's full travel backlist - which includes works such as A Walk In The Woods, Notes From A Big Country and Down Under - are available as ebooks.

Other titles from the author, including childhood memoir The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid, science book A Short History of Nearly Everything and Made in America, his analysis of American culture, have also been released digitally.

The firm added that Bryson's soon-to-be published At Home: A Short History of Private Life will be launched simultaneously in hardback and ebook on May 27th.

Larry Finlay, managing director of Transworld Publishers, said: 'We have had the privilege of publishing Bill's print titles for more than 15 years, so we are delighted to be able to extend his incredible success into the digital world.'

The move towards digital publishing could fit in with Bryson's eco-friendly image as president of the Campaign to Protect Rural England. Last month, he told the Daily Telegraph that more needs to be done to remind people to stop dropping litter.
