The Old Farmer’s Almanac Goes Digital

L. McMaken
Cincinnati, OH


The Old Farmer’s Almanac an American reading staple since 1792 is going digital with an eBook version. Available on Amazon, Kindle readers, or those with a Kindle App will have access to America’s wit, wisdom, planting information, moon phases, and of course, the Almanacs weather predictions. (Touting an 80% accuracy rating!)

Almanac publisher Sherin Pierce said in a statement: “We’ve been researching and designing the ebook version of the Old Farmer’s Almanac for years. For us, it wasn’t enough just to make one available; it was essential that whether reading the almanac on a mobile device or on bound paper, the experience was equally satisfying. There’s a reason we’ve been around for 220 years. We move with the times, while always endeavoring to be as – as our founder Robert B. Thomas wrote – ‘useful, with a pleasant degree of humor.'”

In celebration of this new “eVenture”, the Almanac is holding a sweepstakes on Facebook. Running until March 1, 2012. Random winners selected weekly will receive an eBook copy of the of the Almanac, and one winner will receive a Kindle Fire.

For those who still prefer the traditional paper version, it will still be available in stores. Both versions will cost $5.99
