What is the best way to track ebook price drops?

I have a new Kindle, I have a Goodreads account with dozens of books I'd like to read. There are probably hundreds of books I'd buy for the right price. What is the best way to track ebook temporary sales and price drops? [more inside]

Authors who sell ebooks in website form?

I have a client who wrote a very unique book. We think the digital version would work best as a website rather than e.g. Kindle or epub or PDF. How do we get people to pay for a book in website form? Are there other authors that do this? [more inside]

Good designer to convert PDF to ebook?

I have a PDF that I'd like to convert to ebook format. It's straightforward - body text with just a handful of images - but the ebook needs to have the same font and style of the PDF. (I also have it in InDesign, if that helps.) I'm looking for a designer, or design agency, who has worked on ebooks before, who can take this on. Any recommendations? [more inside]

Ebooks - deleted or altered after purchase

This is a well-known story: in 2009, Amazon erased unauthorized editions of Orwell's 1984 and Animal Farm from Kindle readers. Are there similar cases, where ebooks have been deleted - or their text altered - after purchase? I vaguely remember reading a couple of such stories, but I have trouble finding them.

So THIS is that nasty DRM thing they talk about...

So, I have an ebook in the epub format. I want to read it on a device that is not the one I downloaded it to. Calibre informs me that this book is locked by DRM. I still want to read it on this device, and I don't want to buy the book twice - how do I make it so? [more inside]

There can only be one ring to rule them all. Or not.

Kindle3 or Color Nook or Samsung Tab or just sticking with dead trees? I've been reading so many reviews, forums, tech support, askme posts, that my head is spinning and I don't know what to think. The new Kindle and Nook are supposedly vastly better than their predecessors, so I'm hoping mefites with new holiday toys might be able to shed some light. [more inside]
