Book Alert!

Instead of writing, I am procrastinating of course. I like to peruse the daily deals that Amazon has for the Kindle. If you got a few coins to spare, they are selling Kurt Vonnegut’s God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater for $2.99 and Peter Bryant’s Red Alert for $1.99–the latter being the book that was adapted into Doctor Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.

Toward the end of my procrastination, I also discovered a ton of ebooks that are incredibly cheap (under $6). They are called RosettaBooks and as I was looking through the list, I noticed that they offer some books that have been out-of-print for sometime.

  1. My wallet and my to-do list curse you right now.

    This is kind of the (second?) best use-case scenario for ebooks, I think: the ability to release backlist and out-of-print books that may not sell scads, but still sell. It’s kind of that no-man’s land between recently released books and old-enough-to-return-to-public-domain.

    Project Gutenberg may still be the best use-case…
