225 Kindle books are just $1.99 or less on Amazon right now

Back before there was Netflix or video games or YouTube or Reddit or Tumblr or Vine or Snapchat, there were these things called books full of written stories that people read to entertain themselves.

It might seem crazy, but books are still a great way to stay entertained and informed, and there are a whole bunch of digital Kindle books available on Amazon right now at a deep discount. More →

As he is wont to do, author George R.R. Martin is taking his sweet time writing The Winds of Winter, the next epic in his A Song of Ice and Fire saga that HBO has been adapting into its hit series A Game of Thrones. Via Paste Magazine, Martin on Thursday gave fans something to quench their thirst for new material by posting a new chapter from The Winds of Winter that revolves around Sansa Stark, the Stark daughter that fans of the series hated at the beginning and have slowly grown to pity as her fortunes have gone from bad to worse.

It’s depressingly easy to swindle people if religion is involved

It’s depressingly easy to swindle people if religion is involved

There are times when I’m amazed at how easy it is to sucker people into giving you their money. Whether it’s zany weight-loss schemes, get-rich-quick programs or penis-enlargement devices, I find myself stunned that any of these products can make enough money to stay in business. Nothing, however, can separate fools from their money quite as efficiently as religion. More →

eBooks Versus Printed Books Survey

The Internet has killed CDs and newspapers… but not books

The Internet has killed CDs and newspapers… but not books

Given what digital media options have done to CDs and newspapers, you probably assumed that the rise of eReaders such as Kindle and Nook would be doing the same thing to printed books… but you’d be wrong. Per The Guardian, a new survey of people between the ages of 16 to 24 shows that 62% of young adults prefer reading printed books over eBooks. More →

Amazon continues shoveling dirt on Barnes & Noble’s grave

Amazon continues shoveling dirt on Barnes & Noble’s grave

By on November 26, 2013 at 12:40 PM.

Barnes & Noble remains in dire straits, which is no surprise. What does come as a shock is that the bookstore chain has abruptly decided not to split its retail operations from its star-crossed Nook division. The company has mulled over the split for 18 months, but opted not to pull the trigger. B&N is pretty much a text-book case of a corporation paralyzed by steep and apparently irreversible decline. Nook sales, which were once the only hope for future growth, are now declining at a disastrous 32% clip. Amazon’s Kindle product range is simply devouring the Nook alive. More →

New Kindle Paperwhite to reportedly launch in early 2014

Amazon is reportedly working on a new Kindle Paperwhite model, which should arrive at some point in early 2014, according to TechCrunch. The flagship feature of the new reading device is said to be a new high-resolution display that will have a 300 pixel-per-inch (ppi) density. The publication also reports that it has seen a prototype of the e-reader, which has a display made of matte glass instead of plastic and which seemed “flush with the edges” rather than recessed. In spite of using glass, the new device is lighter than its predecessor. More →

Amazon’s MatchBook aims to drag paper book fans into the digital age

Amazon’s MatchBook aims to drag paper book fans into the digital age

Even some people who relish having the latest cutting-edge gadgets have had a hard time giving up their large collections of old-school paper books. Amazon is aiming to fix that, however, by unleashing its new MatchBook service that offers cheap digital copies of physical books that users have bought through Amazon in the past. There are a couple of caveats here: First, you can only get the eBook discounts on new books that you’ve bought through Amazon and not used books. And second, not every book you’ve ever bought through Amazon will be available at first, although with 70,000 books enrolled so far Amazon is certainly offering an impressive library. The company’s full press release follows below. More →
