12-shades-book-covers.jpg

Who knew so many positive events could stem from publishing a saucy, erotica e-book?

E.L. James' now infamous, best-selling Twilight fan fiction turned erotic realistic fiction 50 Shades of Grey has heated up dialogue concerning women and sexuality, has slightly engorged local economies, gets people reading, and is now stimulating the formerly struggling erotica industry!

In the aftermath of 50 Shades hysteria, Romance-novel publisher Mills and Boone have debuted the Twelve Shades of Surrender series, a selection of stories in e-book form covering a range of steamy, scandalous adventures.

One Mills and Boone rep recently ejaculated expressed:

Filed under: Tech TalkBusiness BlitzBookz

EBook V Hard

Noooooooo!

But what about the smell of books and the weight of hardcovers??

Until they make an iPad cover that SMELLS like books, it will never be the same! LOLz!

It's a sad day, but we have to report that American publishers are now bringing in more revenue from ebooks than hardcover books. For the first time ever, net sales revenue from ebooks exceeded hardcover books in the first quarter of the year.

The data was compiled from

The United States Justice Department Sues Apple For Fixing eBook Prices!

Ameriva vs. apple

It's on!

The U.S. Justice Department thinks Apple went a step too far by conspiring with publishers to create fixed eBook prices and has filed an antitrust lawsuit against the company to teach it a lesson in fairness.

Even though some publishers have already settled, the company behind the iPad is disputing the charges by arguing that pricing agreements with publishers only enhanced competition in a market dominated by Amazon.

Baby Panda Biography Released As E-Book

Filed under: Cuteness!BearPanda

panda

A new iPad app called "Baby Panda's New Home" has released on the App Store.

It's a biography of the baby panda, Zhen Zhen, from the San Diego Zoo.

It is an interactive e-book that reads to you as you read along Zhen Zhen's journey from birth, to first doctors visits all the way to her eventual relocation into the wild of China.

A San Diego Zoo rep said:

"The baby pandas at the San Diego Zoo have generated tremendous interest with the public.

Creating an app that shares these adorable bears with kids in an educational way helps us to continue our mission of conserving these animals.”

Carrying around a baby panda in your iPad sounds pretty cool.

Though carrying around a real baby panda in one of those cute little dog handbags would be cooler. LOLz.

1951 Novel From Here To Eternity To Be Re-Released With Previously Censored Gay Content Included!

Filed under: Gay Gay Gay

novel-from-here-to-eternity-to-be-re-released-with-previously-censored-gay-content-included

Wow! This is pretty crazy!

The 1951 novel From Here to Eternity, by James Jones, is set to be re-issued digitally through eBook firm Open Road, and will reportedly feature two scenes featuring gay content that were previously censored from the original publication!

Holy shiz!

The novel, which focuses on US soldiers serving in Hawaii the months before Pearl Harbor, and was later adapted into a 1953 film starring Frank Sinatra, originally featured two scenes that didn't make the cut. One focused on Private Angelo Maggio revealing that he is paid to have oral sex with another man, and the other referred to a military investigation into possible homosexual activity! The novel's original profanity has also been included back into the digital re-release, set for May 10th.

Jones' daughter, Kaylie, explains:

"My father fought bitterly to hold on to every four-letter word in the manuscript. The publisher was concerned about getting through the censors."

So cool!

Although it's such a shame that this material was cut out for so long, we're thrilled to hear that Jones' full vision for the story will finally be realized in this release!

Hopefully, more novels that may have been foolishly censored in the past for whatever reason will have the same opportunity someday soon!

Harry Potter May Be Getting The E-Book Treatment

Filed under: Harry PotterTech Talk

harry potter may be headed to ereaders

After the final Harry Potter film is released, it'll probably be time to re-read all the books AND re-watch all the movies in an effort to cope.

Looks like we may be able to re-experience the Harry Potter series on our iPads and Kindles, because J.K. Rowling is considering releasing the series in e-book format.

Here's what J.K.'s spokeswoman had to say about it:

"The e-book format is now something that is being actively considered."

Make it happen, J.K.! You KNOW all the technologically-savvy Potter fans out there will jump all over this!

Would U re-purchase the Harry Potter series in e-book format?
