Quickie update because #DeadlineHell – Kindle, audiobooks, pre-orders, Nook fuckery

I literally am in deadline hell right now. Seriously. Not even metaphorically. On top of a bad fibro flare right now…let’s just say it’s a good thing my job doesn’t require pants. Let’s start with the Nook fuckery. I opened Facebook yesterday morning to PMs asking if I could still see my Siren-BookStrand e-books on … Read More

We are writing to announce an important change to our NOOK Service that will affect NOOK Press vendors publishing content in the United Kingdom.

The value of e-books…

I was watching the Today show this morning and saw a story where they interviewed Dr. Ian K.

So far, I’m not impressed. I paid $129. For $20 more, you can get a basic nook. Pros: lightweight, not … Read More

E-reader Comparison.

Okay my little blog buddies, I’ve been playing around with my Kindle 2, nook, and older Sony e-reader, and while I don’t have all the answers, I am ready to share a few things I’ve discovered. All three of these players have a computer-based reader you can use. Kindle 2: Amazon’s Kindle reader is also … Read More

E-book conversions.

Since we now own a Sony e-reader, a Kindle, and a nook, I’m working on a comparison post on all of them. In the meantime, you can visit Calibre’s site at: http://calibre-ebook.com/ and use it to convert files to write to the devices. (Yes, that means even to your Kindle.) It’s free software, and allows … Read More
