Pottermore bookshelf shutting down

07:13 AM by issybird in E-Book General | News

Pottermore stopped selling Harry Potter ebooks and audiobooks last September; as of January 31, 2022, its bookshelf will no longer be accessible. While it seems unlikely for the vast majority here, just in case you don’t have backup copies of anything purchased from Pottermore, be sure to download them by the end of the month.

The 2022 Annual Reading Challenge List Thread

10:57 AM by pdurrant in E-Book General | Reading Recommendations

2022 Reading Challenge List Thread

Welcome to our 13th Annual Reading Challenge!

The Annual Reading Challenge is neither a race, contest, nor an “exclusive club”, anyone can join! This is just a fun activity that some of us have enjoyed doing in the past. Many of us have found reading challenges to be an entertaining way to set goals for ourselves, get ideas for books, and see what others are reading.

This thread is for you to keep a running tally for your chosen challenge. Please state your goals at the top of your post (in the title line if you can), and then start your list in the body of your post. As you read books, edit your post to update your list of books read, or other challenge status.

Please Remember: No discussion posts in this thread. Please use the other thread for that. Non-List posts will be deleted or moved to the other thread.

Discussions & Ideas can be found here:

05:19 PM by kyôdai in E-Book General | News

It seems PocketBook is about to release another ebook-reader with a color E-Ink display.

The Pocketbook InkPad Color, is a 7.8" device very similar to the Inkpad 3 but with an E-Ink Kaleido 2 display, like their 6" model from last year.

Reportedly it goes on sale in Russia and various eastern european countries for ₽21.999 (about $295) coming March.
