(Yes, we know it’s Tuesday. Work with us here.)
So did anyone get a new ebook reader for Christmas (or winter holiday of choice)? Do you have any questions or problems? Ask away–whatever the Editrix can’t help you with, perhaps we can crowdsource from a reader and fellow ebooker. We’re particularly interested in hearing from those who received the Nookcolor. We checked it out at B&N and it’s a pretty slick piece of kit. How do you like yours?
Just to prove that this is actually Jane Austen-related, here’s an article about how classic titles, including Herself’s novels, are becoming bestsellers once again as more and more people acquire ebook readers. The article doesn’t point out how many of those are free downloads, however. When the Editrix acquires a new ebook reader (we’re up to four now…and yes, we find that as nerdy and embarrassing as we probably should) the first thing we do is load up the “Hall of Fame” authors–all our favorites, most of them free classics.
