It’s finally happened.
Amazon has announced that soon it will no longer accept* Mobi files in KDP. They just sent out an email informing authors and publishers that Epub and Doc are now the preferred formats:
Color E-ink screens are expensive, and that is doubly true as the dimensions increase. There’s less of a demand for large screens, which means smaller production runs, and consequently higher costs.
But those larger screens are available, if you have the funds.
The Pocketbook 740 will be a great color ereader, but it does have one small quirk that some won’t like: It runs a version of Linux. If you want an ereader that runs Android and has a color E-ink screen, you should look at the Bigme S3.
Earlier today I set out to write a round up post on the topic of feed reader apps. I am trying to devote Sunday morning to staying in bed and catching up on my news feeds on my iPad, and I thought that would be a great reason to download all the apps, test them, and then write a blog post talking about which one was best.
Here are a few stories to read this Monday morning.
- Wattpad has been sold.
- Olivia Sudjic delves into how the web has changed the stories we can tell.
- Amazon is suing the EU for letting Italy launch its own antitrust investigation.
- 33 writers explain why they write.
- Peter Derk asks what publishing would look like if the Big Four collapsed tomorrow.
