I’m over at Word-Whores today talking a little bit about holidays. Think I just got sorta off-base and rambly though. Suppose that’s okay. Otherwise, I just want to give a quick shout out to Jeffe Kennedy for her release yesterday of Feeding the Vampire! Go check it out! 🙂 Also somewhat randomly, @kindlegraph has created a funky new service which allows authors to “sign” Kindle copies of books. Essentially, if you have a Kindle and you want an autograph of sorts – you go sign up for this free service and then I customize a message and attach digital signature and it automatically gets downloaded to your Kindle, just like an ebook. 🙂 So, if you’re interested in getting something like that from me, go here and make a request. (It’s still in beta, so there may be a few bumps, but if this can get expanded into other formats… Read more
I broke down last month and bought the new Kindle 3 in its lovely graphite form. (And as you can see, I’ve jailbroken it so that the screensaver is actually my book cover. I’m a rebel, yo.) And truthfully, this is my second Kindle 3. I ended up returning the first one a few weeks after I bought it because the letters and words started to rub off on the rubber buttons. When I opened the first one, I noticed that some of the letters seemed a bit faded. Fast forward a few weeks to the fact that the Menu/Back/Home buttons were nearly completely gone…eh. not so good. I did a little poking about and discovered I wasn’t the only one – so maybe a bad batch went out. In either case, I called Amazon and they replaced it for free with a new device (not a refurb) since it was… Read more
Since I actually did get my Kindle set up and working last week (and skinned, thanks to the lovely people over at skinit.com, I figured I’d go ahead and buy a few books off it and see how I liked reading it. It’s taken me a little bit, but I have to admit I’m really liking it now. (I went a little cross-eyed at first for some reason, but I’ve been using it every night for the past week and I don’t think I have any complaints. In fact, I’m beta reading for a few people and it’s been great being able to email myself the word docs directly to the device and now I can read them wherever. At any rate, the first book I actually finished was Never After. Now sadly enough, the only author I’ve ever read before in the list was LKH. I’ve heard of the… Read more
I bit the bullet this weekend and bought a Kindle. I’ve actually been avoiding the whole e-reader thing for quite a while. I’ve always been an advocate for paper-based books. I like covers. I like the smell of the paper. I like taking them into the bathtub. I like to dog-ear the pages. However. In attempting to go through a lot of my house, I’ve discovered that I really do have too many books. Shelves and shelves of them.Which is fine – I love books, as I’ve said. But, I’ve come to realize that I have a serious lack of time and more importantly, I’ve become less inclined to buy books I’m not sure I *want* hanging around the house. Which maybe sounds worse than it should – but what I mean is that there are books I’d like to read, but I’m not sure I want to read them… Read more
