great deal for books for Ereaders

this is only good for this weekend. I paid 125 this summer for my life time membership and I think it is more now. this site is easy to use, has tons of books and about all the current best sellers, supports all types of Ereader. it is only 75.00 this weekend.
that is just a couple of the best sellers. you download onto your pc and then side load into your reader. not as fast as right off B&N or Amazon but to not be paying 10-15 for a current best seller?? it will pay for itself fast.

    Awesome Julie - thanks for the notice. I just upgraded mine. That is a terrific price - lifetime books for the price of about 6-7 titles.

    julie,

    If you see this please feel free to email me through the forum or respond here. I am thinking about moving to an ereader. This site looks interesting, though it states all of their books are open source with no royalties due. How do they get the new releases? i guess I'm just looking for confirmation they have some of them on there....

    They get a good many new releases and almost everything on the best seller lists. They are somehow affiliated with a major publishing house and that is how they get all the titles.

    It's a very good service. They don't have everything you'll ever want, but you'll never run out of things to read. They have even reenacted their request service where you get a certain number of requests per month and they will try to get the book for you.

    is it legit? or is it a file-sharing model with the attendant 'iffiness' and copyright issues?

    Guess that will bring down the price of rare books and first editions eh? Suck to be a collector wouldn't it?

    it will have no effect on first edition prices. if anything, the prices will go up.

    looking forward to learning of the official 'demise' of books myself. the death of books will simply signal their rebirth ;)

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    Far as I can tell it is legit....the site certainly presents itself as such.
  • stikestike Posts: 15,597
    yeah. it looked legit.
    just wondering what the model is... maybe they have a deal to get as much cash upfront and allow sharing, because they figure in two years it'll be free just like music....

    if i could finish one of these damn books i already have going, i'll be doing good.

    Thanks Julie and Fidel for the responses...still hesitating to make the move to electronic format, but it's either spend the money or time on another bookshelf, or go electronic....
