Thanks to the io9 Book Club and Nightshade Books, readers can get their hands on a digital copy of The Windup Girl by Paolo Baciglupi, a novel looking poised to take a run at this year’s Hugo for Best Novel.

Thanks to Windup Girl publisher Night Shade Books, people participating in this month’s book club can write in to get a free PDF of the novel, which you can read on your computer and most eBook readers. (Fine print: You will be signed up for Night Shade Books’ email newsletter when you get the free PDF – you can unsubscribe later if you don’t like it.)

To get your free ebook, write to Night Shade Books. (Click the link for the address.) If you want a hard copy with the gorgeous cover, you can order that here. Or buy it from your nice local bookseller.

Remember: Get the book read by Tuesday, Feb. 23, and we’ll start our meeting that day. The meeting will continue until the end of that week.

I recently bought a copy of The Windup Girl and look forward to finally seeing what all the fuss is about. Those with ebook readers, or those thinking of diving into the market in the future, should be all over this.

    @adribbleofink Damn my technological ineptitude and lack of e-reading capability….

    Thanks, Aidan. I e-mailed them.

    Might want to fix their email link in your post, though. I got the correct one on i09’s site. :)

    Ack! It’s still broken? I thought I’d fixed it.

    Thanks, Joseph.
