New map books available in Kindle, Epub

I got an email yesterday from the developer of a new website that's dedicated to ebook maps. There are around 200 maps on now and they cover cities all over the globe. The maps are drawn from the Open Streetmap Project, and they''re released under a CC license. The ebooks are available in Mobi and Epub. Each map section measures about 400x600 and they work fairly well on my K2. It's a pretty neat site, and it's also a great idea - in concept. Unfortunately, there's a bug which adds an extra blank page after each map section. Luckily this can be fixed easily. Someone will have to go back to the source and add the navigation buttons and then recompile the ebooks. It shouldn't take too long.

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."
