Rain on the Roof

Sunday afternoon trawl on ebooks and nom de porn.

Whilst trawling through blogland I came across a really interesting article on ebook publishing here. One would think that publishers would be interested in ebooks and embrace not only the ebook but the paraphernalia that will go with it, perhaps not?

I am not sure format is such a bit deal either, pdf, lit or whatever, what is the problem? Maybe I am over simplifying but we’re already buying books that are different sizes and I don’t put on a new pair of hands when I read different sized books.  When reading an ebook at the moment I always read in pdf on my mac laptop. It is bulky but I like to surf the net as I read… I think I have the attention span of a gnat!

I’d like to get an ebook reader at some point but want to sit back for another year or so and see what comes out to face off against the kindle (are you listening Steve?). There is an interesting rumor and apple and ebook readers here.

My favorite trawl find today was an article here by Rupert Smith, whose nom de plume, or nom de porn as he puts it, is James Lear. I am rather looking forward to getting my book by him! He also wrote a piece here at Lust Bites. This one made me laugh at the description of a woman in the gay section of a bookshop, I thought it sounded just like me! Found the links originally from ManLove Ebooks

After my undie shopping trip on Friday I noticed this link, The Panty Parade(The line - Scary stomach-holding-in panties. Very popular with grannies the world over is running through my head). I also liked here, here and the last one here is for rugby player aficionados. As it so happens he is from a wee place down unda.
