Anyone know anything about these guys? They seem to be offering "well formatted" books for the SONY and Amazon readers.

Interesting, they only seem to have 19 titles at the moment, though. Guess they're pretty new. :shrug:

They do have a "weekly free download" that might give us an idea of how the formatting is. :nice:

The content appears to be all public domain stuff - at least so far.

The 'About' link describes their M.O.:

"BLTC Press is providing its product unencumbered by DRM (Digital Rights Management), confident in the belief that consumers will be willing to pay a nominal fee for the convenience of well produced and formatted productions of public domain material."

Looks like they've used Book Designer to do the formatting. The free books has some issues. The footnotes don't work. They did not format them. They just are static text with the footnotes at the end of each chapter.
