A Bookless Library Opens in San Antonio | TIME.com

A Bookless Library Opens in San Antonio | TIME.com | Digital Books | Scoop.it

 The all-digital space – stocked with 10,000 e-books and 500 e-readers –resembles an Apple store. But is that really a library?

 

The former San Antonio mayor doesn’t own an e-reader (“I refuse to read the e-book!” he says) and for years has collected first editions of modern novels (in print, mind you). Back in the 1990s, Wolff helped spearhead San Antonio’s 240,000 square-foot, six-story, $50 million central public library, a building the city is now struggling to figure out what to do with. Today, Wolff says he would’ve avoided building such a large facility.

The Best Apps For Reading Ebooks on the iPad for Power Readers | Digital Book World

The Best Apps For Reading Ebooks on the iPad for Power Readers | Digital Book World | Digital Books | Scoop.it

Admittedly, most reading apps will do the job. They’ll let me read the book on my tablet. But I like a little more than just your basic level of functionality. Trying to narrow down what is important is hard; a lot of it is just the feel of the app. But the main things that I care about as a heavy reader are a good user interface (the page on the screen looks nice, also referred to as UI), how progress is marked (a slider, percent, page number), and how bookmarks and notes work. That might not be where everyone’s priorities are, but that’s most of what I want to know. Of course, other features enter into the recipe of what makes a great e-reading app, especially the special features of some apps, but they’re icing on the cake.

Matt Sauthoff's insight:

Surprised to read Amazon will let you buy a Kindle version for 2.99 if you bought a book from Amazon before.  Didn't see  that coming.
