Stephen King Online Book Causes Problems

from the too-much-demand dept

A lot of articles were written when Stephen King decided to release his latest novella only online. What I find more interesting, however, is the difficulty people had in actually getting the book as servers were completely swamped. I think this is a good sign for electronic books, but I still don’t see myself reading a full length novel on my computer… yet.

Hard on the ol' retina

There was a story on the news last night about how a local library had bought a couple of eBook readers as a trial. One of test clients was quoted as saying your eyes do get tired. He then went on to say that it would be a good thing if school textbooks were put on eBooks, because then kids would ‘get used to’ the idea. And possibly constant headaches, too.
