Ebookery: You Need An App For That

Do you want to know what I like best about my Kindle? I can read almost all my books on my Droid.  And on my laptop.  And on my PC.  Oh, sure, the Kindle is a wonderful device. But what happens when the battery runs down? Well, like I said, I read on my Droid or my laptop or my PC.  How is this possible?

Simple. There’s an app for that.

This is where Apple seems to have fallen down in the ebook race.

I can do this with Nook, too.  And I don’t own a Nook.

You know what I can’t read on my phone, my laptop, my PC?

iBooks.

Nope, you need an iPhone or an iPad for that. But hey, if you have Kindle books and want to read them on your iPad, there’s an app for that.

Hmm…

Ebookery: The Feature

Over the past year and half, Tuesdays have been my day to pontificate on all things ebookish. However, you can only go so far before you sound like an idiot on his soapbox. If I wanted that, I’d watch cable news pundits.

So instead, I’m going to talk to the authors. And I’m going to talk to editors. And while we’re at it, I want to hear from the indie bookstores. How are they coping with this brave new world?

So starting next week, Tuesday is your day to get ebook commentary and interviews and…  Who knows? I promised Dusty Rhoades he could come on and make fun of Michele Bachmann. (Why not? Chris Wallace did.)
