Comprehensive List of Free e-Book Websites for your e-Reader

Comprehensive List of Free e-Book Websites for your e-Reader | Litteris | Scoop.it

If you own an e-reader you often can only buy e-books from the bookstore that is bundled on your device. Many of the budget e-readers out there don’t even have a bookstore that is accessible by users and many people are left to fend for themselves to load content on it.

Here is a comprehensive free e-book resource catalog online. All of these books are hardware agnostic, which means they are not locked by DRM (Digital Rights Management). All you have to do is simply download a title and load in via the USB cable from your computer to your e-reader. Many of these sites also provide the books in more than one format, so they will work with your Amazon Kindle, Kobo, Barnes and Noble Nook, Sony e-reader and hundreds of others.

What IS An Indie Author?

What IS An Indie Author? | Litteris | Scoop.it
you are an independent author if:

You have self-published at least one book.
You recognise that ‘indie’ does not necessarily mean ‘self-publishing only’ and acknowledge that even the most indie-spirited self-publisher works in collaboration with other publishing professionals (editors, designers, distributors) to produce a good book and reach readers. You are open to mutual beneficial partnerships, including trade publishing deals where appropriate for you, so long as the author’s status as creative director of the book is acknowledged.
You expect your status in the partnership to be reflected in contracts and terms, not just lip service.
You recognise that you are central to a revolutionary shift in publishing which is moving from seeing the author as resource (in the new parlance ‘content provider’) to respecting the author as creative director.
You are proud of your indie status, which you carry into all your ventures, negotiations and collaborations for your own benefit and to the benefit of all writers.

The Acceleration of Acceleration: How The Future Is Arriving Far Faster Than Expected

The Acceleration of Acceleration: How The Future Is Arriving Far Faster Than Expected | Litteris | Scoop.it

One of the things that happens when you write books about the future is you get to watch your predictions fail. This is nothing new, of course, but what’s different this time around is the direction of those failures.

Used to be, folks were way too bullish about technology and way too optimistic with their predictions. Flying cars and Mars missions being two classic—they should be here by now—examples. The Jetsons being another. But today, the exact opposite is happening.

Secondhand Downloads: Will Used E-Books and Digital Games Be for Sale?

Secondhand Downloads: Will Used E-Books and Digital Games Be for Sale? | Litteris | Scoop.it
Should consumers be allowed to resell digital songs, books, or video games once you're done with your downloads? If it sounds unlikely, just remember that businesses trafficking in second-hand records and books were once considered controversial before society came to accept them as normal—at least up until the Internet undermined the logic of resale. The next several years should be key to whether a similar industry emerges for digital goods.

Over Half a Century After ‘To Kill a Mockingbird,’ Harper Lee Plans to Publish Second Novel

Over Half a Century After ‘To Kill a Mockingbird,’ Harper Lee Plans to Publish Second Novel | Litteris | Scoop.it

The new book takes place 20 years after the events described in the 1960 best-seller.

Here’s what The New York Times writes:

The novel, “Go Set a Watchman,” was completed in the mid-1950s, and takes place when Scout Finch, the heroine of “To Kill a Mockingbird,” is grown up and looking back on her childhood. It features many of the same characters.

In a statement released by her publisher, Ms. Lee, 88, said that she wrote “Go Set a Watchman” first, but was asked by an editor to rework the novel from Scout’s perspective. That book became “To Kill a Mockingbird,” a classic that was published in 1960 and has sold more than 40 million copies globally.

Ms. Lee never published another novel…“I was a first-time writer, so I did as I was told,” she said. “I hadn’t realized it had survived, so was surprised and delighted when my dear friend and lawyer Tonja Carter discovered it. After much thought and hesitation I shared it with a handful of people I trust and was pleased to hear that they considered it worthy of publication. I am humbled and amazed that this will now be published after all these years.”
