Over the four years of Jewish Humor Central's presence on the Internet, we've collected and posted more than 1200 jokes, funny happenings, and humorous tastes of Jewish culture. The mix included hundreds of anecdotes with a connection to the land and people of Israel.
We selected the best of the bunch, some 120 blog posts with associated video clips, and published a book about them called Israel is a Funny Country. The book, containing links to more than six hours of Internet video, went on sale this week at Amazon.com in both paperback and Kindle (e-book) versions. The price of the paperback version is $8.99 and the Kindle version is $5.99.
As part of the book launch, Amazon is making the Kindle version available free ($0.00) to everyone for this weekend only (Friday November 15 through Monday November 18, 2013. After the promotion is over, the regular prices go back into effect, but with Amazon's new BookMatch program, anyone who buys the paperback version will get the Kindle version free (no time limit on this offer).
This is a great opportunity to get these 120 video gems on your Kindle, iPad, tablet, iPhone, Android and BlackBerry smartphone, PC and Mac, and access them whenever and wherever with the free Kindle Reading App provided by Amazon.
What kinds of anecdotes and blog posts are included? You can look inside the book and see the table of contents on the Amazon page for the book. Here are two examples:
