Interview: Piotr Kowalczyk of Ebook Friendly on the development of the e-book market in Central and Eastern Europe
June 10, 2013 | 10:30 am

Piotr KowalczykPoland’s Piotr Kowalczyk is an "iPhone artist, digital storyteller and self-publisher" with a self-reported download count of 150,000 and rising for his "short stories for geeks"—picture stories created on an iPhone or short Twitter fictions. Kowalczyk is also the founder of Ebook Friendly and an occasional TeleRead contributor. I spoke with him recently about the e-book and e-publishing situation in Central and Eastern Europe; what follows is a lightly edited transcript of our conversation. TeleRead: How has the e-book market developed in Central and Eastern Europe, and especially Poland?

Overview of Barnes & Noble Nook for Web
August 30, 2012 | 5:00 pm

NOOK® for Web - Barnes & Noble A couple of weeks ago Barnes & Noble introduced a new feature called Nook for Web. If I had to compare it to an Amazon property, I'd call it a cross between the Look Inside feature and the Kindle Cloud Reader. First, Nook for Web lets you instantly preview free samples of Nook books before you buy them. You don't have to be logged in, and you don't even have to be a registered user. Just browse for books in the Nook Store, and you'll have instant access to the content of the book you're interested in. In fact, not only is it similar...

IFTTT recipes for ebook users
August 30, 2012 | 7:30 am

IFTTT is an awesome tool, which lets users automate several daily web tasks. Some of them are related to e-books, and I'll list them in this post. The name is an acronym for "if this then that" ... which is a decent explanation of what, exactly, the service can do for you. For example: If there's a new item on my Pinterest board, then upload it to a specific Facebook photo album. If I shared a new photo on Instagram, then download this photo to Dropbox. If there's a new free app of the week on iTunes, then send me an email. There are a...

A Look at Kindle Daily Deal’s First Year – facts, tips and commentary
August 29, 2012 | 1:05 pm

Kindle Daily DealA year ago, on August 24, 2011, the Kindle Daily Deal was launched. The first featured book was The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo. Yesterday' price - $5.59, today's discount - $4.20, Kindle Daily Deal price - $1.39. Since that time, the discount mantra comes back every night around 12:00 AM, Pacific time.

What's more important: frequent visitors who buy a lot more than just e-books from Daily Deal. In October of last...
