ZDNet.com reports Barnes&Noble.com has discontinued sales of e-books. Customers using Microsoft's eBook reader have until Dec. 9 to access downloads purchased from the store, while Adobe Reader customers have 90 days to retrieve any outstanding files, according to a notice posted on the site Tuesday. Meanwhile thousands of e-book titles were listed as unavailable. "B&N.com no longer sells eBooks," the statement noted.
I have downloaded one or two e-books, and I must admit I did not enjoy the reading experience. In fact, I could not bring myself to finish two of the books, and I paid full-price for them. The e-book format is great for reading in short spurts of 10 or 15 minutes--great for reference books, but not so great for novels. I greatly enjoy having the Bible on my PDA. Zipping to a particular verse has never been easier. I downloaded the Pocket PC version of the Modern King James Bible, which you can find at Olive Tree Bible Software.
