You should really consider getting one if you enjoy reading!

They are very fun and great on the go, or at home. I'm in love with my nook glowlight.

In fact, my simple touch has been easily hacked, I'm typing this message on it.
 
2012-11-15 05:42:39 PM
Got it.
 
2012-11-15 05:44:52 PM
I even have Calibre set up so I can BUY a book on Amazon, DL it to my PC, Strip out the DRM and Convert it to an Epub for my nook.

Buying your book now Subbs. Cheap books are good books.

R.A.Danny: Got it.


Raharu: Buying your book now Subbs. Cheap books are good books.



Thanks guys, hope ya'll enjoy it!

What's a good, inexpensive e-reader?

Bot the nook and the Kindle are excellent. There are other 3rd party ones that are not too bad.

I prefer the weight and feel of my Nook Simple Touch with Glow light, Ive got a 32GB Memory card in it now that is only about 8GB full.

Its got a nice MicroUSB port for charging and data transfer, and the glowlight is fantastic.
Im getting 2-3 weeks of battery life out of mine even using the glowlight on a regular basis.

You can't really go wrong with either The Nook or the Kindle right now.

And with Calibre you can convert just about ANYTHING to Epub, or the Kindles weird format.

Like Comics and Manga? I got about 4GB from my old torrented comic folder on my nook now. Tons of PDFs and and document files from work.

The Nook without Glowlight I think is running 89$ right now, and with Glowlight between 99 and 120 depending on where you get it.

PROTIP: Do not be an idiot like me and spend 30$ to 40$ on a case for it, for the love of god shop around, you can get nice carry cases for both nook and kindle A LOT cheaper then the official brand versions.

That Kindle someone linked, make sure thats the version WITHOUT Ads before you buy it, if that's the brand you pick. If I recall the Cheaper kindle comes with Ads : /
 
2012-11-15 06:12:45 PM
I have a Kindle Touch with ads, and I have to say they're VERY unobtrusive. You can also get the Kindle reader software for free on just about any computing device there is.

Yeah, but why even get ads.... when you shouldn't have to.

Also same for the Barnes and Noble App. Got it on my phone and PC, oddly I also have the Kindle Store App on my Nook!

Cracking my nook was Easy and great.
 
2012-11-15 06:24:41 PM
Let me make it clear. Nook or Kindle, doesn't matter.

E-Ink is the thing...

It will change how you read.
 
2012-11-15 06:25:13 PM
Granted, I did buy it when it first came out, and it was about $30 - $40 less than the non-ad one. They've dropped a lot in price since then.
 
2012-11-15 08:41:18 PM
OK, I'm an idiot. How do I find this thing?
 
2012-11-15 08:45:07 PM
OK, got it. It's be next after the one I'm reading now.
 
2012-11-15 09:11:45 PM
I gave you a buck. Or $.64. However much is left after Amazon takes their cut.

For what it's worth, I'm very much not a fan of e-readers. The ST is the only e-reader I've ever seriously considered buying. The proprietary crap Amazon pulls, their known habit of deleting your books you bought, and that they don't read e-pubs so borrowing library books is harder, means the ST outclasses the Kindle Paperwhite.
 
2012-11-15 10:05:43 PM
Thanks, guys.

Rex - I only get $0.35 when it's this cheap. But, I've sold about 120 more so far today than I normally would have, so that kicks ass.

Vanity press publication?

I suppose you could call it that, though there's no press involved since it's all electronic.

Still, you wrote a book. Pretty admirable.
 
2012-11-15 10:58:46 PM
I've never been steered wrong on Fark before, so I'll bite.

Bought it. I'm sure I'll enjoy.

After I buy a book on Kindle Fire, it gets copied to laptop asap. I paid for it, you no can delete it dammit!!
Has over 500 books, never had a problem. YMMV of course, to each his own. Video quality is nice for TV shows, etc. HDMI cable to TV works well.

Count me in subby, other authors on fark have proven to be worth my time so I'll give it a shot. If I like it, it will get a Fark-snark worthy review on Amazon. (Hope your grammar is better than mine, geez).
Cheers!
 
2012-11-16 06:05:08 AM
Thanks again, guys (sorry for the delay, sleep). With luck, it won't suck too bad.

Also, coco ebert, Amazon's provided a nice way to publish yourself and make more money (always a good thing). The big downside, of course, is that lots of people who shouldn't be writing (perhaps myself included, some would argue) take advantage of that. You can find some real gems in there, though, things that would have never otherwise seen the light of day.

Amazon helps readers, though, by providing a sample of the book, something like 10%. You can usually tell enough about the writing from that, fortunately.

I'm just about to finish The Convert. Great read, Fredster!
 
2012-11-16 08:14:55 AM
Thanks, okaykleek, glad you're enjoying it. I had a hella time writing that one, and am doing my best not to start something else with the main character. I really had fun on it.
 
2012-11-16 09:37:51 AM
I just picked it up. Looks good.

Make it 121

Regarding e-readers, I go old school when it comes to textbooks, research articles, etc. However, for just every day reading, you would have to wait until I am cold to pry my nook from my hands. When I travel, it is usually a minimum of a full day in airports and on planes and I can't carry enough books to get me through the travel. My personal one is a Nook tablet (got it from my daughter; she won a gift certificate at work; probably would have stayed with my original one). The truth is you really don't need a specific e-reader... there are apps for Android and ipad where you can download from and read from any of the major vendors.

Kudos to Raharu for mentioning Calibre. I just saw that yesterday, downloaded it, and am already a fan.
 
2012-11-16 10:02:07 AM
Bookmarking for later Kindle download. Sound like an interesting read, Fredster.
 
2012-11-16 10:24:19 AM
If you have a tablet, you can easily read it on one of those too. My Nexus 7 will look great reading this :)
 
2012-11-16 11:24:35 AM
I bought one copy, I love romantic comedies and I am going to picture Reese Witherspoon for main character as I read and chuckle aloud at her crazy antics. This hopefully will have a narwhal in it too, that would take it up a notch or two!
 
2012-11-16 12:04:55 PM
Picked it up. It's now on the Kindle paperwhite, for me to read after the few books I have ahead of it.

Sargun, I was able to get a Nexus 10 before they sold out (should be here today). Can't WAIT to see how the Kindle reader looks. My old man eyes will thank me for this, I think!

My girlfriend linked me to this the other day, because she's apparently friends with your wife. Small world!

She also says "I can't get his new book to download to the TouchPad's Kindle App.." wonder why that is. other than, perhaps, Amazon possibly trying to cut use of the webOS Kindle app. :-S

Small world, indeed. It seems like Amazon would be shooting themselves in the foot by doing that -- they still make money off every book sale, no matter where its read.

It's pretty awesome -- just have to get used to tapping on a screen. Very light.

The sales end won't let me ship any of the newly added DC branded comic books to the TouchPad, either. I wonder if they've updated their book format and new things are no longer compatible :-S

Maybe I can download it to the PC reader and then load it with something like Calibre.

Strange. They upgraded their HTML to take advantage of some of the Fire's new features, but I'm not sure what they did. The one thing I'm thankful for is that they let you upload a document in Word format now. I used to do all my books in pure HTML because I didn't like the reformatting that Calibre did. I know a lot of people have had luck with using that software to convert between formats, though.
