Baen Books Adds Multiple Book Download Option

Baen Books Adds Multiple Book Download Option | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
The SF/Fantasy publisher Baen Books reminded us again this week why they are the only decent ebook retailer outside of Amazon. Baen has added a new download option to its ebookstore, BaeneBooks.com. We have long had the option of downloading an entire order's worth of ebooks as a single ZIP file of DRM-free ebooks, and now Baen is letting customers organize a volume download of any of the ebooks in a customer's account. Want to download just the 14 ebooks from a certain author? You can do that, and in fact Baen will let you download up to 100 titles at a time, in your choice of DRM-free formats. And here's a nifty feature: after you've downloaded the ebooks, they are rotated to the end of the list of ebooks in your account.This saves the top of the list for ebooks you have yet to download. Here's the download page: This is a nice contrast to B&N, which took the download option away in September 2014, and Kobo, which had to be shamed into letting you download the ebooks you bought.   And yes, this feature is one of the reasons why many ebook buyers say Baen is the only decent ebook retailer. The [...]

Do You Want Page Turn Buttons on Your eReader?

Do You Want Page Turn Buttons on Your eReader? | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
It may be hard to remember this in 2016, when the Paperwhite has become the archetypal ebook reader, but there was a time when ereaders all used to have page turn buttons. The first Kobo ereader, the first Nook, the first four Kindles, and all the Sony Readers all had page turn buttons (even Google's ereader had page turn buttons), but then touchscreens started taking over about five years ago. Manufacturers started phasing out page buttons in favor of minimalist designs, and now physical page buttons are so uncommon that they are a rarity on new ebook readers. Sure, some device makers like Onyx, Pocketbook, and Boyue keep releasing ereaders with page turn buttons, but for a lot of people the first new ereader they've seen with real page turn buttons (and this doesn't include the faux buttons on the Kindle Voyage) is the new Kindle Oasis. Some readers, including this blogger, prefer the convenience and feel of real page turn buttons. In fact, we like buttons so much that we seek out reading apps for smartphones that let you repurpose volume buttons as page turn buttons. We find it easier to maintain a one-handed grip, and turn the page simply by pressing down rather than [...]
