New site notifies Kindle book availability

http://oscurapress.com/mysteria/docs/Mysteria.html


According to this website, it notifies you whenever a specific physical book is available as a Kindle book. Quite useful for Kindle owners, IMHO. Also works for music and videos on Amazon. You can search for and add the desired book directly on their site, or to a public wishlist on Amazon which it can retrieve.

This is pretty darn useful. Sadly, there is often times a lag between a paper copy and a digital copy, and a site like this means I won't have to keep checking all the time. Thanks a lot.

I tried this site and wasn't impressed -- I couldn't get it to work on Firefox past the initial sign-up, for one thing. There also doesn't seem to be any control over what items it watches and doesn't, once you allow it access to your wish list.

The site could use some work but the concept is great.
