Editing An Epub On Nook Press - Can Anyone Help?

08 November 2014 17:20 (GMT)

Hi

I've now started putting my books onto Nook. I uploaded an epub but it needed tweaking. The annoying thing is I save each chapter after editing, and deleted an unwanted chapter, but those saves are not being reflected in the preview and I can still see the deleted chapter! Angry Does anyone know if there's a problem with it?

The other annoying thing about using Nook Press is that although it recognises the .xhtml files there is no way you can make amendments using a code view!

Thanks Smile


Thanks

Kobo Desktop

27 October 2014 19:39 (GMT)

My Kobo Desktop wasn't working properly so Kobo Helpline told me to uninstall it and re-install from their website. I did this only to find that the latest version of Desktop will not run on my computer with Windows XP. I emailed the helpline again only to be told that they do not support XP. I have books purchased and now cannot download them to my Kobo. Does this mean that my Kobo Glo is now useless? Any suggestions welcome. I have complained to Kobo but as yet no response.

eBooks and Dead-Tree Statistics

24 October 2014 01:01 (GMT)

Here's an interesting infographic about ebooks. It seems that most readers still prefer dead trees.

Another statistic I noticed this week (source unknown) is that the average male in the UK reads four books a year, and the average female six. I suspect these figures are pulled down by many people not reading books at all, whilst 'readers' probably have a rather higher batting average. I average about thirty a year, but I bet that is nothing compared with some in this forum!

Adobe Digital Editions 4 Spy Allegations

07 October 2014 19:41 (GMT)

In the last couple of days there have been some interesting allegations about what Adobe Digital Editions 4 reports back to base and how it does it. See The Digital Reader and here as well as in Ars Technica.

There are legitimate reasons for transmitting book details back to the mother-ship - for example to check DRM validity or synchronize the current page across multiple devices. However it is alleged that Adobe are doing this as JSON messages over HTTP. This would mean that the information is being sent in effectively plain text - unencrypted - so anyone at an intermediate server the message passes through as it makes its way across the Web could read it.

Adobe Digital Editions 3 doesn't appear to have this behaviour.

Pressure-based Page Turn Sensors

18 September 2014 12:35 (GMT)

Interested to see that Amazon have just announced:

  1. New basic Kindle with page-turn buttons replaced by a touch screen - because physical buttons are so out of date...
  2. New top-end Kindle Voyager with added "pressure-based page turn sensors with haptic feedback" as the next great thing.


I regularly use both touch-screen readers and one with physical buttons. Apart from the occasional frustrated swipe across the screen of the non-touch ereader I can't say I notice much difference once I'm "into" a book.

What do you prefer? Is there any future for physical buttons?
