#eprdctn hour: An open roundtable

https://storify.com/LauraB7/eprdctn-roundtable

There was no set topic this week, so almost anything and everything about ebooks was discussed.


 Harry Potter: Another edition

Pottermore has released new, iBooks-Author created versions of the series (available only on iBooks, naturally). They have some annotations from J.K. Rowling and some animations scattered around. I bought one volume; it crashed iBooks twice when scrolling through.

The animations were fun, but limited. Also, as a sad example of a lack of attention to detail, paragraphs are indented and there’s a line space between each paragraph. Why?

New Nook!

From Samsung. Digital Reader runs down some specs. I wonder how it renders an ebook.
