Breaking news: Mantano to become Bookari - TeleRead

Breaking news: Mantano to become Bookari - TeleRead | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
Following my earlier post on the latest Mantano Ebook Reader upgrade, here’s one answer to the question I asked there: What’s going on at Mantano? Well, as you can see from the flash screen that the Mantano Ebook Reader pops up in its latest version, as of its next release, “Mantano Reader will become Bookari.” Right now, there’s no indication elsewhere what that means for my – and many others’ – favorite EPUB reading app. A search of the Mantano Desk, which currently seems to be Mantano’s preferred venue for latest news and updates, turns up nothing for Bookari. Ditto the main Mantano website. The announcement itself doesn’t have, or

House of Cards vs. books: How much do e-books and p-books compete with other forms of entertainment?

House of Cards vs. books: How much do e-books and p-books compete with other forms of entertainment? | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
A huge question arises when we think about the prices of books vs. those of, say, subscription video services, movies, games, music and other entertainment.
