BooksForABuck.com Newsletter--April, 2010
News and Events
- Welcome to the April edition of the BooksForABuck.com newsletter.
It's Spring--and April showers. What better way to enjoy the weather than with a great book? Yesterday, Apple released its iPad. Lots of enthusiasm...it'll be interesting to see how it works out as a reading device. Fortunately, at BooksForABuck.com, we support multiple formats so, if you start with one device and switch to another, you can still read your books. On the new iPad, you can read books you've already bought in HTML, PDF, ePub, and (using the Kindle for iPad), Mobipocket/Kindle formats. There's also eReader for the iPhone which should work--I suspect eReader will soon have a version dedicated to iPad as well.
As some of you know, we recently moved our offices to California. Yesterday, we experienced our first major earthquake since arriving in the Golden State. No damage to us. Our sympathies to those who were injured or suffered damage.
