Scheduled Server Migration Nov 23 (Sunday) @ 3:00am EST

04:11 PM by Alexander Turcic in Miscellaneous | Announcements

Ladies and Gentlemen,

MobileRead will be offline for server migration work this coming Sunday at 3:00am EST for approximately one to two hours.

We'll be moving our equipment to a new location somewhere scenic very close to New York City. That's right, au revoir Canada, you served us well in the past. Yet time has come to embrace new opportunities with more competitive and better hosting options.

In preparation, we've lowered the time-to-live values of our DNS entries to a minimum, hoping for the best that your local ISP will quickly pick up our new IP address.

Until then... keep calm and fingers crossed!

Yours faithfully,
Alex

Kobo Now Listing File Type and DRM

05:26 AM by Cosimo in E-Book General | General Discussions

I noticed tonight that under Product Information is an item titled Download Options where it lists the file type and if it is DRM protected.

I believe this is new, I haven't noticed it before and I visit the site several times a day.

December 2014 Book Club Nominations

01:07 AM by WT Sharpe in Reading Recommendations | Book Clubs

MobileRead Book Club
December 2014 Nominations

Help us select the book that the MobileRead Book Club will read for December, 2014.

The nominations will run through midnight EST November 30 or until 10 books have made the list. The poll will then be posted and will remain open for five days.

Book selection category for December is:

Short Stories

In order for a book to be included in the poll it needs THREE NOMINATIONS (original nomination, a second and a third).

How Does This Work?
The Mobile Read Book Club (MRBC) is an informal club that requires nothing of you. Each month a book is selected by polling. On the last week of that month a discussion thread is started for the book. If you want to participate feel free. There is no need to "join" or sign up. All are welcome.

How Does a Book Get Selected?
Each book that is nominated will be listed in a poll at the end of the nomination period. The book that polls the most votes will be the official selection.

How Many Nominations Can I Make?
Each participant has 3 nominations. You can nominate a new book for consideration or nominate (second, third) one that has already been nominated by another person.

How Do I Nominate a Book?
Please just post a message with your nomination. If you are the FIRST to nominate a book, please try to provide an abstract to the book so others may consider their level of interest.

How Do I Know What Has Been Nominated?
Just follow the thread. This message will be updated with the status of the nominations as often as I can. If one is missed, please just post a message with a multi-quote of the 3 nominations and it will be added to the list ASAP.

When is the Poll?
The poll thread will open at the end of the nomination period, or once there have been 10 books with 3 nominations each. At that time a link to the initial poll thread will be posted here and this thread will be closed.

The floor is open to nominations. Please comment if you discover a nomination is not available as an ebook in your area.


Official choices with three nominations each:

- None -
