Agree with Mel about wanting alerts for new books by a particular author. That's one thing I like about the Sony store.

No interest at all -- it's much more of an annoyance.

Update to this Thread...

I haven't been back on this thread in quite some time, but I wanted to take a moment to look in review everything that was posted.

After a VERY long slog, we have begun work on the production website for Ereading.com. We have, in fact, taken many of the suggestions on this thread into consideration and we are attempting to add as many as possible.

One thing I will add is that our app, PocketReader™, will be available for iOS and Android, but not Windows phones--at least, not initially. Does anyone here feel that is unfair to users? I ask because Windows doesn't seem to be particularly big on cellphones, at least not yet, and it is a huge expense for us.

Again, I wanted to thank EVERYONE for their suggestions. I truly believe Ereading.com® and PocketReader™ will be better products because of the input we received here.

I promise to be more active on any thread I am involved in from now on!

I've been doing that for the past 2 years. I find the ebook, add to cart, pay for it connecting to my bank account (other options possible). No ADE needed, they are watermarked. I can download it to PC as soon as it is paid for (almost instantly) and appears on my bookstore shelf. I get multiformat (epub, mobi, sometimes also pdf) for 1 price. It is automatically send to kindle from the bookstore right after purchase (in some bookstores it can be automatically uploaded to dropbox). I am forgetting what Alf is all about.
