What is a good EPUB reader on Linux - Linux FAQ

What is a good EPUB reader on Linux - Linux FAQ | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
If the habit on reading books on electronic tablets is still on its way, reading books on a computer is even rarer. It is hard enough to focus on the classics of the 16th century literature, so who needs the Facebook chat pop up sound in the background in addition? But if for some reasons …Continue reading...

Google Is Considering eBook Rentals, Now Accepts Epub3

Google Is Considering eBook Rentals, Now Accepts Epub3 | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
Marianela Camacho Alfaro's insight:

The mentions of rentals are vague, and there’s no hint of how long one might rent an ebook for:

The “List Price” allows non-agency publishers to recommend a price for a book on Google Play. The Specified Price is only a recommended price and may not be the final sale price of the book on Google Play. For books that you authorize to be sold for rental periods, currently Google allows you to provide a “Rental List Price” for each authorized rental period as a percentage of the ebook list price for the book.

Google has also dropped support for the wide variety of ebook formats they used to accept (Epub, Doc, XML, HTML, and even Mobi & PDB) and slimmed down their acceptable format list to only Epub, Epub3, and PDF (but only if no Epub is available).

Interoperability ebooks formats.pdf

Marianela Camacho Alfaro's insight:

"To sum up, there is no technical or functional reason not to use and establish EPUB 3 as an/the interoperable (open) ebook format standard. One shortterm obstacle is the non-availability of reader applications able to display all EPUB 3 features. However, this problem should be fixed soon by the IDPF Readium initiative which is developing an open source reference system and rendering engine for EPUB 3. Given the will to do so on the side of Amazon and Apple, the DRM barrier between the ecosystems could be partly overcome by simple changes to the respective store and reader applications, and partly only by more demanding agreements between different players on interoperable DRM solutions. The latter is only necessary if copyright holders continue insisting on having their intellectual property protected by highly restrictive measures."

“La interoperabilidad es un requisito clave para la construcción de una verdadera sociedad digital, requisito imprescindible para los libros digitales. Cuando un cliente compra un libro impreso, puede llevarlo a donde él quiera. Y lo mismo debe ocurrir con un libro digital. Si ahora es posible abrir un documento en diferentes ordenadores, por qué no abrir un libro electrónico en diferentes plataformas y en diferentes aplicaciones? La lectura de un libro digital debe estar disponible en cualquier lugar, en cualquier momento y en cualquier dispositivo. No hay ninguna razón técnica o funcional para no usar y hacer del EPUB 3 un formato de libro electrónico interoperable estándar“.

EPUB3: One File, Many Ebooks | Digital Book World

EPUB3: One File, Many Ebooks | Digital Book World | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
Marianela Camacho Alfaro's insight:

"A single EPUB3 file can be used to create an ebook for all e-readers, explained Liz Castro, tech expert and author, at the IDPF conference in New York.

Then Castro pointed out the obvious advantages of this efficiency:

• Ebooks are less expensive to produce.
• Changes can be made more simply.
• Quality control can be more consistently implemented.

Producing an ebook for every platform from a single digital file has long been an ideal in the publishing industry. And, device manufacturers and production professionals are moving toward just such an industry standard."
