Hello folks,

There's this post over at Reddit by the "Kobo Research Team" asking for participation on a 10 minute survey to collect some data. I think our community may want to contribute to the survey.

[New York Times] Will Books Survive Spotify?

02:20 PM by orebmur in E-Book General | News

https://www.nytimes.com/2023/12/13/o...algorithm.html

»Spotify may have made it easier than ever for us to listen to an enormous trove of music, but it extracted so much money in doing so that it impoverished musicians. Now the company is turning its attention to books with a new offering. It will do the same thing to writers, whose audiobooks Spotify has begun streaming in a new and more damaging way.«

Libraries: ‘We can’t do this on our own’

12:14 PM by shalym in E-Book General | News

It looks like the State of CT may be getting ready to challenge publishers on the pricing scheme for e-books. They're going at it from both a consumer protection angle and from state contract law angle, since library budgets come from municipal budgets. Should be interesting, if anything comes of it.

The 2024 Annual Reading Challenge List Thread

02:15 AM by pdurrant in E-Book General | Reading Recommendations

2024 Reading Challenge List Thread

Welcome to our 15th Annual Reading Challenge!

The Annual Reading Challenge is not a race, 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:
