Ten Up For Today, Wednesday July 16, 2008

July 16, 2008

And that might be all, instead of the planned twenty.

The reason is that eReader has been delivering an unacceptable response rate and now I’m getting Service Unavailable.

I will end this for today and do the regular ten tomorrow.

So much for Auto-Da-Fe and all the rest of his work. Do any of the people who run ebook stores actually read?

A depth-gauge name, to see how deep ebooks go. Looks like my paperback copy of Exit Sherlock Holmes will have to be razored and scanned.

Kindle isn’t invulnerable after all. No Ed Wood, Jr. and now no Eddie Bunker.

But the asking price for this ebook is highway robbery.

The subject of the cult documentary The Stone Reader is poorly served in e. The ebooks.com listing Microsoft refers to has no file format or price!

And how can Fictionwise have it in MobiPocket format when MobiPocket claims not to have it at all? See what I mean about these ebook search engines overflowing with Suck? Writers will starve to death because their works can’t be found and bought!
