Dru Anderson è una ragazza “strana”, da sempre. La sua vita è un continuo trasferirsi di città in città a caccia di creature notturne: fantasmi, vampiri, lupi mannari. È una vita pericolosa, ma è l’unica che Dru conosce, da quando il padre è diventato uno zombie e lei si è ritrovata nel bel mezzo di un gioco mortale dove ogni mossa potrebbe essere l’ultima. Un giorno infatti, in un paesino ghiacciato del Dakota, uno zombie molto affamato bussa alla sua porta. Sola, terrorizzata e in trappola, Dru avrà bisogno di tutto il suo ingegno per rimanere viva: le creature notturne hanno deciso di tornare a cacciare, e Dru sarà il loro menu. La piccola Anderson avrà qualche chance di sopravvivere? Riuscirà a scoprire quanto sia speciale e quanti sono i suoi poteri nascosti? Con una scrittura tagliente, una buona dose di ironia, atmosfere invernali, desolate e spettrali, Lili St. Crow costruisce un romanzo al cardiopalmo, il primo di una serie di thriller ad alta tensione: una nuova fantastica eroina dal sapore mitologico, che può combattere, che ha poteri soprannaturali, ma che puo spezzare anche più di un cuore…

Here’s my current collection of Dramione EPUB files that I read on my mobile phone. There’s about 2500 or so sorted into different folders (which might be kind of messy since I’m half asleep haha). There will be more added if flagfic ever works again but for now I use FanFictionDownloader for the sites that do work on it. There are tons of fics missing because I’m not a fan of calibre and only use it if I absolutely have to so I apologize if those files might not be as nicely formatted as the other ones. Anyway, the zip password is dramioneepub so enjoy the ones that are there and hopeful I’ll be able to add more soon!

Getting Away From Amazon Kindle Lock-In

So I just found out that Google has an “archive” functionality that will allow you to move files from its services to your own hard drive and decouple from them at will. They don’t seem to yet have this for Google Play (and thus ebooks) but they are adding archive functionality for a lot of things, which means if they ever add it for Google Play you will not be locked in.

In case you are interested (as I am) in shifting from Kindle to Google Play without rebuying your ebooks over and over again, here’s how you do it.

  1. Visit this nice article to strip DRM from your Kindle books: http://www.wired.com/2011/01/how-to-strip-drm-from-kindle-e-books-and-others/
  2. Use the software mentioned there (calibre) to turn them books into EPUB books.
  3. Go to the Google Play store and click on “Books” and then on “Uploads”.
  4. Upload your new DRM-stripped EPUB books. They will now be synced across all your devices, including reading positions and any notes or annotations you make in the future.
  5. Download the Google Play ebook reader for your device of choice.

For those of us using the free Kobo reader available for iPhone/iPad devices, you can do the following additional steps to make it available for your Kobo reader as well (though without the syncing of position and annotations and stuff).

  1. Upload your new DRM-stripped EPUB books to Google Drive or Dropbox.
  2. On your iPhone or iPad go to the Google Drive or Dropbox app.
  3. For Google drive, click on the “i” icon and select “open in…” to open in your Kobo app.
  4. For Dropbox, click on the file, then when it can’t be read by Dropbox, click on the button that looks like a box with an up arrow to open in your Kobo app.

Done.

ePubs: Tips for reading electronic stories outside of your internet browser.

Written by unofficial helper and sanity keeper whitneystrouth,

Why ePubs?

Because you can save your favourite stories and you can have them for always!

But What About PDFs?

Ok, PDFs are awesome, yes especially when you are working with files that include not only text but have pictures, diagrams and include fancy desktop publishing. But for just straight reading novels and stories ePubs are the way to go! They are smaller which is great for storage and use on eReader batteries and they can be read across many platforms!

How to Open and Read ePubs

Without bogging you down with the various apps you can download for reading ePubs (Adobe Digital Editions, iBook, NOOK Reading App etc.) I am going to stick to answering this question with the one I use. Calibre.

Download Calibre here: http://calibre-ebook.com/

Calibre has a few amazing features! Firstly it neatly stores all of your ePubs along with your PDFs, mobis, word documents, text files or whatever format of electronic books you prefer. Also it has a built in eReading app.

Using Calibre is pretty self explanatory and the website is a wealth of knowledge but below I have outlined a quick start guide after you install and open the software.

To add a book to your library:

  1. Click the red icon that says Add Books.
  2. Select the book you would like to add to your library. It will then copy the file and place it in its own directory. You can delete the original file.

To read a book in your Calibre library:

  1. Double click on that ePub and it will open in another app for reading.

FanFiction

One of the best features is you are able to download your fanfiction right to your library. Even if just a chapter updates, you can update your already existing file with just the new chapter!

Install FanFiction Downloader:

  1. Under “Preferences” select “Get Plugins to Enhance Calibre.”
  2. Scroll down until you find “FanFiction Downloader.”
  3. Click it to highlight the field and click the “Install” button.

Download A New FanFiction:

  1. Click the little arrow on the “FanFiction Downloader” Button and a drop down menu should appear.
  2. Chose “Add New From URL(s)” from the drop down menu.
  3. Copy and Paste the URL for the FanFiction you wish to download into the dialogue box that appears. (If you have already copied before then it should automatically appear.)
  4. Click “Show Download Options.”
  5. Output Format should be “ePub.”
  6. If Story Already Exists should be “Update ePub if New Chapters.”
  7. Select “Update Calibre Metadata.”
  8. Select “OK”

If it is a large file it will take a long time, be patient, it is worth the wait.

Update An Already Existing FanFiction in Your Calibre Library:

  1. Highlight the book(s) in your library you wish to update with new chapters.
  2. Click the little arrow on the “FanFiction Downloader” Button and a drop down menu should appear.
  3. Chose “Update Existing FanFiction Books” from the drop down menu.
  4. Click “Show Download Options.”
  5. Output Format should be “ePub.”
  6. If Story Already Exists should be “Update ePub if New Chapters.”
  7. Select “Update Calibre Metadata.”
  8. Select “OK”

If you select “Overwrite if Newer” the download will take longer. If you have selected “Update ePub if New Chapters,” it should not take as long.

Converting File Formats to ePubs

If you have joined me on the ePub bandwagon and want to now convert all of your preexisting PDFs to ePubs you are in luck!

Converting PDFs to ePubs:

  1. Go to the following website: http://www.2epub.com/
  2. Select “Browse.”
  3. Find the file you wish to convert and select “OK.”
  4. Select “Upload Files.”
  5. Insert your Metadata (Title and Author)
  6. Select “Convert Files to ePub.”
  7. Right Click the file and “Save As.”

Now if you are a sheer genius and understand file formats and formatting, you can also use Calibre to convert files. I find it is a little convoluted but you have a lot more control in selecting your parameters and settings.

If you’re still in need of help, you can either contact myself or whitneystrouth, and we’d be happy to help you. If you could please leave a non-anonymous ask, we’ll be able to help you better on an individualized basis, without having to publish the answer.

Lavorare in un ospedale psichiatrico è difficile. Ogni giorno la dottoressa Ellen Roth si scontra con un’umanità reietta, con la sofferenza più indicibile, con il buio della mente. Tuttavia, a questo caso non era preparata: la stanza numero 7 è satura di terrore, la paziente rannicchiata ai suoi piedi è stata picchiata, seviziata. È chiusa in se stessa, mugola parole senza senso. Dice che l’Uomo Nero la sta cercando. La sua voce è raccapricciante, è la voce di una bambina in un corpo di donna: le sussurra che adesso prenderà anche lei, Ellen, perché nessuno può sfuggire all’Uomo Nero. E quando il giorno dopo la paziente scompare dall’ospedale senza lasciare traccia, per Ellen incomincia l’incubo. Nessuno l’ha vista uscire, nessuno l’aveva vista entrare. Ellen la vuole rintracciare a tutti i costi ma viene coinvolta in un macabro gioco da cui non sa come uscire. Chi è quella donna? Cosa le è successo? E chi è veramente l’Uomo Nero? Ellen non può far altro che tentare di mettere insieme le tessere di un puzzle diabolico, mentre precipita in un abisso di violenza, paranoia e angoscia. Eppure sa che, alla fine, tutti i nodi verranno al pettine…

Un día antes del fin del mundo
nos levantaremos temprano
a ver a los pájaros
y nos sorprenderemos
escuchando nuestra respiración
a la mitad de la hierba fresca
nada sentiremos en ese momento
sólo esa pequeña gota de lluvia que se estrella
en contra de algo que no podremos definir
y la vida no será más que arena que cae
un fragmento de pan viejo en la alacena
que comerán con paciencia las ratas más pequeñas
en ese momento ya seremos un poco de tiempo y sangre
en un lugar inadecuado
—   René Morales Hernández/ Notas sobre el fin del mundo / Un día antes del fin del mundo  - I .

This is what my virtual bookshelf looks like. Yes, I wish they were real books I can touch and feel, but I’m poor, lol. So yeah, you guys spot a book similar to yours or something you guys want? :)

New! Against Competition by Marc Fischer ($5.00)

Temporary Services has been on a publishing rampage lately. We recently reprinted Marc Fischer’s 2006 essay Against Competition as its own booklet with illustrations by Kione Kochi and a new Afterword.

The essay takes on the pervasive and corrosive problem of competition that exists and is created between artists by a market-driven art system. The essay also explores productive collaborative models in art, as well as in underground music subcultures whose approaches to generosity and working together might be something for artists to learn from. The Afterword follows up on some of the stories and examples from the original essay, and looks at the impact of social media on all of these concerns and how things have changed in the nearly 8 years since this text was first written. It also mentions the creation of Half Letter Press and the founding of Fischer’s initiative Public Collectors.

The booklet was made on a Risograph EZ 390 with three colors on green and white paper. Copies are available for purchase here. We also made an epub and a PDF version.

C’è chi guarda le vetrine desiderando cose che non potrà mai permettersi, chi invece ammira le foto di alberghi di lusso in cui non andrà mai. Io mi sono spesso immaginata di aver incontrato un ragazzo carinissimo e perfetto quando invece non esisteva. Come quel giorno in cui avrei preferito restarmene a casa anziché partecipare a un matrimonio. Non era tanto la cerimonia a disturbarmi, quanto il fatto che ci sarebbe stato quel bastardo del mio ex, al braccio di mia sorella, per giunta, mentre io sarei arrivata da sola. L’unica soluzione era inventarsi un fidanzato, un tipo meraviglioso e affascinante con sex appeal da vendere e un tagliente senso dell’umorismo. Uno di quelli per cui le altre sbavano di invidia e sarebbero disposte a tutto pur di rubartelo… Di sicuro uno così non è l’uomo della porta accanto, sarebbe troppo bello per essere vero.

link do livro: se eu ficar

sinopse:

Depois do acidente, ela ainda consegue ouvir a música. Ela vê o seu corpo sendo tirado dos destroços do carro de seus pais – mas não sente nada. Tudo o que ela pode fazer é assistir ao esforço dos médicos para salvar sua vida, enquanto seus amigos e parentes aguardam na sala de espera… e o seu amor luta para ficar perto dela.

Pelas próximas 24 horas, Mia precisa compreender o que aconteceu antes do acidente – e também o que aconteceu depois. Ela sabe que precisa fazer a escolha mais difícil de todas: se ela irá ficar.

sou daqueles que leem primeiro o livro para depois ir ao cinema conferir o filme…vai entender não é? 

bom, já escrevi aqui no meu tumblr que curto baixar livros no site “leiturafacil.com” e é por lá que encontrei o “se eu ficar”. acabei a leitura ontem, domingo e assumo: caiu algumas lágrimas…mas o livro é muito bom, vale a pena ler e aos que já assistiram ao filme, leiam! não é só uma história de amor de adolecente e sim sobre a vida, a morte, religião e claro, filosofia…

VAI TER CONTINUAÇÃO. bom, pelo menos no livro sim…aguardando para ler o próximo: “para onde ela foi”

Todo sobre Epub

¿Qué es “Epub”?

Es un nuevo estándar de libros digitales que va co-existir por un tiempo con PDF  .

Ventajas

- Su contenido adapta automáticamente al tamaño de la pantalla, o mejor decir que ePub es un formato adaptable. 

 - El PDF se ve bien solo en dispositivos a los cuales fue diseñado,   si preparas un PDF pare verlo en pantalla de un    monitor de 17   pulgadas no se ve nada bien en la pantalla de un teléfono celular, y al revés – un documento PDF diseñado    para iPhone no se vería bien en pantalla de una netbook. El EPub resuelve este problema.

 - Todos los dispositivos lo aceptan, sean computadoras, móviles, e-readers o tablets.
