Christian publishers likes the Reader

Looks like we are going to see more Christian literature for the Sony Reader in near future. From tennessean.com:

Quote:
Ken Stephens, president of B&H, said technology used for the Reader is unlike any he has seen. He likes its black print on a white page, the capacity to hold up to 70 average-sized books, and an estimated battery life of more than 7,000 page turns.

"So you can really take a fairly good size library with you," he said. "There's been other readers in the market for a long time but the problem has been sales numbers just have been so low — they haven't been terribly interesting for publishers."

B&H is in the process of licensing many book titles and Bible texts to electronic providers, including Sony, which offer the content for sale through their electronic bookstores in a revenue-sharing arrangement, Stephens said.

I can't help wondering how useful something like a bible would be on the reader, given the lack of a search facility. Perhaps a decent TOC could be an acceptable substitute.

I agree. I think the primary market for Bible-like ebooks on the Reader would be in things like daily readings from the Bible and daily devotionals. But there are a whole lot of Christian books out there that are read cover to cover, so that could be a big hit on the Reader also.

No, that's sorcery. Or was it necromancy?

Necromancy is talking to the dead. I think you mean sorcery.

Hmm. I thought it was performing magic on/with the dead -- you know, like being a zombie-master.

Oh, well, either way.

It's doing something with the dead - from the Greek "nekros" = corpse. Perhaps best not to inquire too closely as to what they actually do .

I know this is an old thread, but has anyone seen any Christian books on the market? I know my mother would LOVE a reader but she only reads Christian books (that's just her preference).

Post Excellent source for Christian Classics

I've found the Christian Classics Ethereal Library full of excellent material:

http://www.ccel.org/

Some is txt, some rtf so they are ready to read - but its also very easy to just run them through Book Designer or any other of the fine sony reader format converters available through this forum.

The Christian Classics Ethereal Library was started at Wheaton College and has now moved to Calvin College. Very good stuff.
