2010 WDW Earbook now available on Kindle

I've been publishing an annual, unofficial "Walt Disney World 'Earbook" since 2010. The 2011 edition was made available for both print and Kindle, but the 2010 version never had Kindle until recently. I've fixed that a little while ago (it costs $4.99 on Kindle) but forgot to announce it here.

Walt Disney World Earbook 2010
This book captures all the new attractions in pictures, and offers brief retrospectives for the closures. Many special events are also captured here--all through the eyes of one frequent visitor. A time line of events throughout the year puts the changes into perspective, and an index makes finding info easy.

I suppose that, while I'm on the subject, I might as well use this opportunity to list, explain, and link to the other books I've written. Thanks to those of you who have bought one of more over the years. I try not to do too many "commercials" like this post!

Top Tips for Visiting Disneyland Paris
Visiting Disneyland Paris might seem like a daunting task for many Americans, especially if they do not speak French. It's easier than you think, however, to make your way from the airport to your hotel, and to navigate around the parks. All you need are a few "top tips"! This e-book provides the essentials. Anyone familiar with Disneyland or Walt Disney World won't need detailed information about rides, but they might want to know which attractions to prioritize or which to skip, and this book provides the answers. It's intentionally not an exhaustive resource. By design, it narrows down the advice to just the principles, concepts, and wisdom you'll need to make your own on-the-spot adjustments. By providing only the "top tips," the book lets you make informed decisions about where to go and when, but also keeps the elements of surprise and discovery intact on your vacation.
