Google Play Family Library Lets (Some) Share eBooks, Other 

Google Play Family Library Lets (Some) Share eBooks, Other  | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
Google formally announced the launch of its family library sharing plan today, showing that early reports of Google Play Family Library's flawed design were greatly exaggerated. Google announced on its official blog on Wednesday that users in Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, the UK, and the US will shortly be able to set up a family account and share content. The service first launched last year, but could only be accessed by paying for a Google Music subscription from inside the Google Play Android app. Now we're going to be able to set it up via the Google Play website. Or at least that is what reports claim; it's not available to me. And according to the FAQ page, the family library is supposed to be available through Google Play Android app. That isn't working for me; how about you? According to Google, it's supposed to work like this: When you buy an eligible app, game, movie, TV show, or book in the Play Store, you can now share it with your family—across devices—with no additional sign-up fee. Today’s families have a lot of devices, and it should be easy to share content no matter where we [...]

German Airline Now Giving Passengers a Whole Extra Kilogram Baggage Allowance for Books 

German Airline Now Giving Passengers a Whole Extra Kilogram Baggage Allowance for Books  | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
Publishing Perspectives is making a big deal out of a little promotion currently being by Condor Airlines: German airline Condor and Vorsicht! Buch, a marketing initiative of the German book trade, have jointly launched a summer campaign to promote reading: travelers on Condor are allowed one extra kilo in their hand luggage just for books. Here’s how the campaign works: through August 31st, local booksellers are handing out stickers to their customers that say “Buch an Board!” (Book on Board). Just stick it on your suitcase and Condor will allow an extra kilo of weight in your hand luggage. You’ll be set for that lovely book-heavy holiday you’ve been looking forward to! All bookseller members of the German Publishers and Booksellers Association received stickers and window signs to promote the campaign. Whatever shall the passengers do with that extra kilo? They can carry a whole extra textbook, and are rich beyond measure. Snark aside, I would have more interest in this program if it included ereaders and thus gave passengers the option to carry an entire library with them rather than a couple extra books (or perhaps encouraged passengers to donate books rather than bring them on a flight). That said,  [...]
