Amazon Announces The New Breeds Of Kindle E-Readers!

BY , SEPTEMBER 30, 2011 | PERMALINK

Amazon is winning the hearts and minds of readers all over again with the company's newest Kindle products. From the too-good-to-be-true sounding Kindle Fire to the Kindle Touch and even a version for the reader who wants a no-frills electronic device, Amazon is rolling out their new breed of Kindles just in time for the holidays. However, we were certainly not expecting more than four different types of Kindle e-readers to hit the stores for the holiday rush. Here’s everything you need to know before you order a device for yourself or a loved one:

E-Loaning: Kindle Readers Can Now Connect To Their Local Libraries!

BY Whitney Sullivan, SEPTEMBER 23, 2011 | PERMALINK

Kindle lending has finally come — or is coming soon — to approximately 11, 000 local libraries all across the country. Earlier this week Amazon's Kindle lending programs launched at libraries such as my local spot for free reads, the New York Public Library. Although there are still many unanswered questions about Kindle's lending-library service, such as which libraries are involved, what publishers' materials they can grant digital access to and exactly how patron privacy will be protected as the libraries work in conjunction with Amazon, I decided to take the new service on a test drive to see exactly how usable it is if your library does offer Kindle lending.

Across The Digital Divide: E-Books And The Poor

BY Whitney Sullivan, SEPTEMBER 22, 2011 | PERMALINK

I was touched by the blog post that Seanan McGuire (aka author Mira Grant) wrote about the way that the so-called “death of print” is a threat to America’s poor. That is to say, this trend towards e-only publications — the result of the growth of the electronic book and device market over the past few years (and in one giant leap last winter) — is a move with many ramifications. 

Several of these changes are positive. For starters, authors are able to get their books to fans more quickly and often with a much small price tag for new releases. As a reader, one of my favorite aspects of my Kindle is that I can fit far more books on my e-reader than I would ever be able to house in my tiny apartment. I also love that while my Kindle is the size of a single book, it gives me access to many more novels so there’s no more sitting bored on the train, or wherever I am when I finish the book I’m reading. These benefits mean that I’ve adopted e-books as an inexpensive, way to devour more books than ever before.

Apple Opens A Quick Reads Section In Their iBookstore

BY , SEPTEMBER 15, 2011 | PERMALINK

Apple recently launched Quick Reads, a new section in their iBookstore. Quick Reads offers short stories and novellas, all available for less than $5.00. Found in the "Books" section of the Store feature on iTunes, Quick Reads hosts short works of non-fiction and fiction, available for download directly to a computer or Apple mobile device.

Readers may remember that we recently reported on the new Kindle Singles program, which is Amazon's answer to the burgeoning market of novellas and short non-fiction. Quick Reads will be another great destination for fast e-reads. We were thrilled to see that the iTunes' fiction section is already good place to find novellas from established authors in all genres. Here are some of our picks:

Scholastic And Ruckus To Team Up For New Children's Imprint

BY , SEPTEMBER 14, 2011 | PERMALINK

YA readers have more books than ever available to them, but the novels that are slated to be released by the newly-created Scholastic Ruckus imprint will really stand out from the crowd. These books will be published in both traditional and e-book format and include special content such as interactive apps related to the stories, exclusive author interviews and more. To create this new line Scholastic is teaming up with Ruckus Media, a children's digital content developer. We were particularly intrigued to hear from Publishers Weekly about the ways that the new releases from Scholastic Ruckus will bring new dimensions to the reading experience.

Amazon To Launch Digital Book Rental Service

BY Whitney Sullivan, SEPTEMBER 13, 2011 | PERMALINK

As rumors start circulating that Amazon may soon host an e-book library function, I am positively giddy. This new un-named service would allow subscribers access to an e-library of books for a monthly fee.

Now skeptics are saying that companies have tried this before and no one has been able to conquer the book rental market the way that Netflix has done with the video market. And the detractors are pointing out that not too long ago Amazon launched their own instant video-streaming service, which has not yet surpassed the popularity of Netflix. However, I laugh in the face of their cynicism. The new Amazon e-library feature has the potential to be a real gamechanger.
