There is a company that might make reference books popular as ePubs.
Oyster wants to create a service similar to Netflix.
They intend to make thousands of eBooks available to read on a monthly basis for an annual subscription fee.
The article on the Good E Reader is well worth a look.

Offline Reading

I discovered something called dotEPUB.
This Bookmarklet lets you convert any webpage into an e-book.
You have a choice of two formats, EPUB OR MOBI (Kindle).
Extensions are available for Chrome and Firefox.
So a visitor can save an interesting article to read later offline on their desktop or mobile.

Dying Fall

Ruth Galloway Mystery

Yesterday, I visited Elly Griffiths Facebook fan page and found a post with the cover of her next book, Dying Fall.
This was posted in mid September, I am looking forward to reading a Ruth Galloway mystery again.

The Likeness

Tara French

Tara French lets her main character tell you the story.
In The Likeness , the story is told by Cassie Maddox, a secondary character in the previous book, In the Woods .
The stories are connected without being too similar, clever.

The story starts with a good hook and keeps you reading.
I enjoyed the book and will read more.
