Interview: Peter Rukavina on paper e-books

Nora Young Interviewed Peter Rukavina last week on his rather unorthodox ebook solution. You see, he doesn't have an ereader. Instead he has a guy named Shawn (who runs a local copy shop). Here’s his e-reading solution:

  1. Find book in Google Books.
  2. Download PDF.
  3. Email PDF to Shawn.
  4. Pick up printed and bound copy of book at Kwik Kopy a few hours later.

Okay, so it's just a POD solution, but this is still an interesting podcast. You can listen to the interview over on the Sparks blog on Or you can download the MP3 (here).

P.S. You might also want to read about why Peter went with Shawn (instead of an ereader).  It's interesting.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
