There it is. Fine.  Enjoy.  I guess Sorcerer is next.  Grumble. Grumble.  Grumble.  But I ain’t buying Vampir ($350) until I see at least one Createspace sale of one of these.  Grumble. (By comparison, Disruptive Publishing will shortly be doubling … Continue reading

34 Kindles Sold Today

Average price around $460.  Lowest was $403.  Sellers have inventory, aren’t setting buy-it-nows, and the market’s responding. 3 Sony Readers sold, “… worldwide shipping” and maybe try installing Russian fonts. I don’t think Sony’s going to be at the O’Reilly … Continue reading
