Toys R Us bankruptcy: Partly ?Cyberbooks? plot in reverse
by Chris Meadows
18 Mar 2018 at 10:44pm
Those Toys R Us kids who didn’t want to grow up are now going to outlive their favorite store. The latest news isn’t good for the beleagured retailer—its pre-Christmas hopes of reorganizing to continue operation didn’t hold up after a much weaker-than-expected holiday season. It’s tempting to blame the big, bad Amazon for driving it […]

by Chris Meadows
12 Mar 2018 at 8:00pm
Here’s the kind of deal that only comes along once in a very great while. Do you like your Kindle Paperwhite but think 4 GB of onboard storage just isn’t enough? Woot has the refurbished “Paperwhite Manga Model” available for $89.99. Available in both black and white, this 6″ Paperwhite contains a whopping 32 GB […]

A Wrinkle in Time: The book and the movie
by Chris Meadows
10 Mar 2018 at 9:24am
To celebrate my birthday last night, I used my MoviePass subscription to take in the Disney movie adaptation of one of the best-loved children’s books of the last fifty years or so, A Wrinkle in Time. How was it, and how did it compare to the book? Part of the answer to that involves looking […]

Amazon runs big Kindle sale to kick off National Reading Month
by Chris Meadows
4 Mar 2018 at 6:26pm
To celebrate National Reading Month, Amazon is running a big sale on its Kindle e-ink devices this week. The sale knocks $20 off the Kindle and Kindle Paperwhite models but doesn’t include the more expensive Voyage and Oasis (except for one refurbished Voyage that appears to be an older model). It also includes a number […]

Project Gutenberg blocks German users after court rules in favor of Holtzbrin...

3 Mar 2018 at 12:55pm
The global Internet and highly territorial real world have had a number of collisions, especially where ebook rights are concerned. The most recent such dispute involves Project Gutenberg, a well-respected public domain ebook provider—in fact, the oldest. It concerns 18 German-language books by three German authors. As a result of a German lawsuit, Project Gutenberg […]

Facebook, fake news, and false positives
by Chris Meadows
2 Mar 2018 at 7:08pm
The proliferation of fake news on the Internet has been a problem for a while, and not just because that’s what Donald Trump likes to call any news story he disagrees with. Some sites exist simply to post any half-truth or outright falsehood that will get enough people angry to drive traffic to their advertisers. […]

Serial Box serial e-publisher snags $1.65 million investment
by Chris Meadows
1 Mar 2018 at 6:55pm
I hadn’t heard much about serial e-publisher Serial Box since it was founded in late 2015 and inked a deal with Simon & Schuster to publish completed serials in print in early 2016. But a recent piece in Publishers Weekly reveals the service is still alive and kicking. PW reports that the start-up has secured […]

Is the e-ink reader dead? And does it matter?
by Chris Meadows
25 Feb 2018 at 5:05pm
On Tom’s Guide, writer Marshall Honorof has an interesting, lengthy report looking at the apparent fate of the e-ink e-reading device. Honorof begins by noting that the ebook format is doing just fine, but use of the dedicated reader device itself seems to be dwindling. Why could this be? Honorof observes that people don’t necessarily […]

Disney vs Redbox decision may have profound implications for bundling
by Chris Meadows
23 Feb 2018 at 5:10pm
Remember the case I covered in December, about Disney suing Redbox for breaking up retail Star Wars DVDs and selling the bundled digital copy codes separately while it rented the discs? The separate sales violated the shrink-wrap license of the digital copies, which were intended to be tied to ownership of the disc versions with […]

The Big Five Publishers and the Nutri-Matic Drink Dispenser
by Chris Meadows
20 Feb 2018 at 2:29pm
The recent interview that Hachette CEO Arnaud Nourry gave to Indian news site has been a sort of nine-day wonder of the ebook world lately. In this interview, Nourry called the ebook a “stupid product” because it’s “exactly the same as print, except it’s electronic. There is no creativity, no enhancement, no real digital […]

Barnes & Noble lays off hundreds of experienced employees, may not be long fo...
by Chris Meadows
14 Feb 2018 at 8:41pm
Some of the biggest news to hit the bookselling world this week is that Barnes & Noble suddenly fired 1,800 of its most experienced workerson Monday. Every Barnes & Noble store lost between 3 and 7 employees—cashiers, digital leads, receiving managers, and others. The store announced it would book a charge of $11 million for […]

Save 50% on Diane Duane?s ebooks and help save Diane Duane?s home
by Chris Meadows
13 Feb 2018 at 7:18pm
I’ve written a number of times about the occasional ebook sales Diane Duane runs on her self-owned ebook store, but this one has a special urgency. A series of medical expenses and lower-than-expected royalty payments have put Duane and her husband, Peter Morwood, in danger of losing the home where they’ve lived for the last […]

Donald Trump, nonreader-in-chief, again wants to kill off IMLS, the library a...
by David Rothman
13 Feb 2018 at 2:43am
Donald Trump is famous for his contempt for the written word. He hates to read briefing papers. So, to the presumed delight of ideologues like House Speaker Paul Ryan, Trump is once again trying to kill off the Institute of Museum and Library Servicesand some related programs. Got to help pay for all the billions […]

Boldface now in OverDrive?s Libby ebook app for library patrons: How to use it
by David Rothman
18 Jan 2018 at 8:13am
OverDrive‘s nifty Libby app for library patrons is so much easier to use than earlier alternatives. But Libby lacked an all-text boldface option, a “must” for library patrons with contrast sensitivity issues—especially older people. That included me, even after cataract surgery. Now OverDrive has wised up. I’m not sure when it happened, but, yes, boldface […]
