Wanted to check the status of a pre-ordered (& pre-paid) ebook.
Try the main url

I was able to get in mine that way. The URL posted at the beginning of the thread no longer works.

Well, yes, I agree and do so, but the AVERAGE person with an ereader doesn't know how to do so. Heck, most people I know do not even know of Calibre! I've educated a small group around me about removing DRM from both ebook and audiobook. They've taken to that easily given their experiences of going from VCR to DVD. They want to be able to read books they paid for years from now.

I keep wondering if I'm a harbinger of evil to these small places. I just find out about them, buy one or two ebooks or audiobooks, and suddenly, they are out of business. BOB is the third one. In any case, I'm 3/4 of the way through my Nook collection, downloading and removing the DRM and stuffing into Calibre. Just found out that I can do it on magazine subscriptions as well, but have to download to the Nook first and then drag onto the computer. I'll archive my Isaac Asimov and Ellergy Queen myself, thank you.

I tried to download to my mac but I think I'm doing something wrong. I also tried to drag from mykindle to folder but it wouldn't do it either. Is there a way to get my kindle e-books on my mac itself not cloud? Or is there another way of doing this?...it won't let me add another device either. Thanks and hope I am making sense.
Detailed help with DRM removal tools isn't permitted at MobileRead. I suggest you ask at the blog where you got the tools.

They've deleted their Facebook and twitter accounts. I don't think B.O.B. is coming back despite what they said.

No one is answering on their Support Board questions either.

I pretty much think so. Someone on the support board lost $50 in gift card balance. I would be contacting my card company.

I didn't think they would be back. When small companies that go down that road it is usually fatal. They cannot get anyone to give any more capital at that point.

Another good ebook source gone. Fictionwise (we knew for a while) and now Books on Board. Whose next?

I think the real question is who is left? I don't know many stores left other than the big ones Kindle, Nook, Kobo & Sony. I mean there is Smashwords but they are indie based. BOB was the last of the little guys.
