The Advent Calendar is a long-standing tradition in Germany that over the years caught on here in the States, and while the chocolate treats are always a favorite, some offer prizes of another nature. Berlinica Publishing has kicked off the season with a new Adventskalender surprise on their Facebook page, and are giving a special bonus to those who sign up for their newsletter… a free eBook.
Berlinica is known to publish very specialized books on German historical topics that are of interest to an American audience, and its rare to see such a generous promotion. Anyone that signs up for the newsletter leading up to Christmas can choose between one of two eBooks, Mark Twain in Berlin or a famed story by Kurt Tucholsky, The Times are Screaming for Satire.
In addition to the freebie, two additional ebooks will be raffled off to subscribers, a copy of Wings of Desire — Angels of Berlin, by Lother Heinke, and one copy of Leipzig! One Thousand Years of German History. Bach, Luther, Faust: The City of Books and Music, by Sebastian Ringel.
