Reader with google play books

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 22:15:11 GMT

I just bough the inkbook prime, which runs android and I (maybe foolish) thought it had google play store installed too. As I would very much like to use google play book as my reader-app. Then I can use both my phone and ebookreader to read with and keep sync on where i am. Plus google play books is where I have my books stored also. Which device would have google play store and possible to install google play books on? Hope someone can help :) Thanks



Calibre finding some but not all books on Samsung tablet

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 22:01:58 GMT

I am new to Calibre. I have been successfully building a library with books from my Nook and also books from my Samsung Galaxy A Tablet. However, I just realized that the books it has recognized on my tablet are epubs (it has also recognized pdf files), but it hasn't recognized any of the books I downloaded from Amazon to the Kindle App on my tablet. It doesn't see them whether I try to get them from the Main Device or the Card. (I moved them to see if that made a difference.) I have tried to find answers for this by searching, but I haven't seen questions that fit this situation. If answers are provided somewhere, please just give me the link. Thank you.

No disc issue opening epubs

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 19:44:03 GMT

:help:I have recently installed the latest version of Calibre and I loaded some e-book, that are .pdf and .epub only. Where with .pdf files Calibre works perfect, it doesn't with epub ones. Whenever I try to open an epub file I get an error message about_: "Calibre-Parallel.exe - no disc" :angry: What did I do wrong? Gbegno.



Free (DRM-free) Barcelona Noir [City-Themed Spanish Mystery & Suspense Anthology]

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 19:05:47 GMT

*Barcelona Noir* edited by Adriana V. López & Carmen Ospina, who are a magazine editor and a Random House digital program director, respectively, is a Spain-set installment in the Akashic Noir series of excellent location-themed mystery anthologies, this one filled with stories by native Spanish and Catalan and foreign writers telling mystery & suspense tales set throughout history in the eponymous city, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Akashic Books, who are generously running a holiday advent calendar promotion. If you happen to like this one and wish to read more (the entire series is well worth it, and I've been slowly collecting them during the sporadic price-drops), Akashic Books are couponable at Kobo if you want to put them on your wishlist in anticipation of future holiday sales. Currently free until midnight December 9th directly @ the publisher's promotional blogpost (http://www.akashicbooks.com/free-e-book-advent-calendar-download-barcelona-noir-for-free-until-midnight-december-09-2016/) (DRM-free ePub & Mobi available worldwide), and you can read more about the book on its regular catalogue page (http://www.akashicbooks.com/catalog/barcelona-noir/), where you can see the full list of contributors and their stories. *Description* Akashic Books continues its groundbreaking series of original noir anthologies, launched in 2004 with Brooklyn Noir. Each story is set in a distinct neighborhood or location within the city of the book. Brand-new stories by: Jordi Sierra i Fabra, Imma Monsó, Santiago Roncagliolo, Francisco González Ledesma, Valerie Miles, David Barba, Isabel Franc, Lolita Bosch, Eric Taylor-Aragón, Antonia Cortijos, Cristina Fallarás, Raúl Argemí, Teresa Solana, and Andreu Martín From the introduction by Adriana V. López & Carmen Ospina: “Its physical beauty alone, surrounded by mountains with a view of the sea, was cause enough for architect Antoni Gaudí to raise his version of Candy Land upon its soil; a daily impetus for the city’s mimes and living statues to claim a spot along Las Ramblas and transform it into their stage. But don’t be fooled: Barcelona, with all its illustrious color and exterior fineness, hasn’t always been able to curb the darker yearnings of its Hyde to its Jekyll. Blame it on a bubbling, repressive concoction made with a pinch of Church, a touch of Crown, and a large dose of General Francisco Franco to stir up the insides of its very independent and anarchic Catalonian spirit. One that has allowed it to conserve its own language and modus operandi from the rest of Spain, and that has always attracted the vanguard to create under the sereneness of its palm trees and Mediterranean light . . . Repression, vice, immigration . . . the fourteen stories within will divert your eyes from Barcelona’s lively Ramblas and Gaudi spires, opening them onto the city’s tainted side. One that will never appear in any recommended walking tour.”



Free (DRM-free) Gates of Azyr [Warhammer Sci-Fi Fantasy RPG History Tie-In Novella]

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 18:53:29 GMT

*The Gates of Azyr* by Chris Wraight (ISFDB (http://www.isfdb.org/cgi-bin/ea.cgi?110648)) is apparently the establishing 1st story in the novelizations of the Warhammer Age of Sigmar setting of the popular sci-fi/fantasy hybrid RPG wargame universe (Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warhammer_Age_of_Sigmar)), this installment adapting some of the backstory of it into a novella, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Games Workshop's Black Library imprint. This is a featured supplementary Free Book in the iTunes UK store, and we've previously received the backstory-providing guidebook, which is still free: Warhammer Age of Sigmar Primer (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=262964) Currently free @ iTunes (https://itunes.apple.com/ca/book/the-gates-of-azyr/id1012987426?mt=11) (available to Canadians and pretty much everywhere worldwide that has a full-service iTunes store, i.e. not Iceland). ETA: turns out this is also free directly from the publisher's webstore (http://www.blacklibrary.com/aos/whaos-novs/gates-of-azyr.html) (DRM-free ePub & Mobi available worldwide), and Amazon UK (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gates-Azyr-Realmgate-Wars-Book-ebook/dp/B01N9470R0/) (doesn't seem to exist in North America) The Black Library seem to be offering an ebook/audiobook advent calendar promotion (http://"http://www.blacklibrary.com/advent-2016.html"), but as far as I can tell, it's for showcasing daily brand-new releases and not freebies, although there is a deal to get the entire lot of them at a discount which effectively gives you 6 titles free, according to the ad blurb, if you think you might be interested. *Description* The war is over, and the Mortal Realms have all but fallen to Chaos... Khorgos Khul rampages across the fiery Realm of Aqshy, hunting down mortal kind to slaughter or subjugate to Khorne. His Goretide have crushed all resistance... until the storm. From the heavens hurtle paladins clad in gold. Sent by Sigmar, the Stormcast Eternals have come to liberate all the realms from the yoke of Chaos. Their leader is Vandus Hammerhand, Lord-Celestant of the Hammers of Sigmar. After a long age of darkness, there is hope. Vandus must open the Gates of Azyr to unleash Sigmar’s righteous fury against the damned. Everything depends on his victory. Read it because It’s your first chance to enter the mortal realms and see Sigmar’s chosen warriors in action – heroes of heavenly magic in god-forged armour who ride the storm and bring death to the servants of Chaos, in this case the dreaded Goretide. The perfect place to start exploring the Age of Sigmar.



Free (nook/Kindle/Kobo) Evernight by Claudia Gray [YA Paranormal Fantasy w/Romance]

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 18:24:36 GMT

*Evernight* by Claudia Gray (ISFDB (http://www.isfdb.org/cgi-bin/ea.cgi?112336), Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Claudia_Gray)) is the 1st novel in her Evernight series of YA paranormal boarding school fantasy with strong f/m romantic elements, set at the eponymous exclusive spooky Gothic academy, this installment setting up the heroine of the series as a new student, who discovers that she has a secret destiny which she tries to escape with the help of the obligatory love interest, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher HarperCollins's HarperTeen imprint. This is B&N's Free Fridays selection for the weekend, though not exclusive to them, although it does seem to be US-only (different imprint in the UK). Currently free @ B&N (http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/evernight-claudia-gray/1100580065?ean=9780061972645), Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/Evernight-Claudia-Gray-ebook/dp/B001R1LCHQ/) & Kobo (https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/evernight) & iTunes (https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/evernight/id360639923?mt=11) (none available to Canadians). Probably also free @ Google Play (https://play.google.com/store/books/details/Claudia_Gray_Evernight?id=VSXGRRydKRoC) & eBooks.com (http://www.ebooks.com/411557/evernight/gray-claudia/) for the US. *Description* Bianca wants to escape. She's been uprooted from her small hometown and enrolled at Evernight Academy, an eerie Gothic boarding school where the students are somehow too perfect: smart, sleek, and almost predatory. Bianca knows she doesn't fit in. Then she meets Lucas. He's not the "Evernight type" either, and he likes it that way. Lucas ignores the rules, stands up to the snobs, and warns Bianca to be careful—even when it comes to caring about him. "I couldn't stand it if they took it out on you," he tells Bianca, "and eventually they would." But the connection between Bianca and Lucas can't be denied. Bianca will risk anything to be with Lucas, but dark secrets are fated to tear them apart . . . and to make Bianca question everything she's ever believed.



Help with downloading ebooks into Marvin using Calibre content server vs OPDS

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 17:36:36 GMT

I have been trying to solve a problem I keep having and am needing some help. Some of the ebooks I have have generic covers by default but I have added a nice cover using Calibre (saved as cover.jpg in the books folder) I do not like to change anything about my actual epub file as I like to keep them as retail quality. Ok, I am using Marvin for iOS as my ebook reader, and when I download the ebooks using OPDS they do not get the cover from Calibre they get what I guess is the default cover. When I do the Connect/Share button inside Calibre and download that way, I do get the books with cover art The only problem is, this solution requires Calibre to be running at all times and that is not ideal for me. I have included a video to help explain my problem https://youtu.be/RKvKwOBMQes

Aura Kobo Aura (original non HD) official sleep covers vs eBay/AliExpress etc

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 16:11:22 GMT

Hi, I'm purchasing two of those new open box original (i.e. not edition 2) non HD Kobo Auras. Planning to get some sort of cover or case mostly for protection for them. The vendor I'm buying them from also has the official silver sleepcover for CAD15 (~USD11.40). I'm hoping it won't add much to the shipping. Assuming it doesn't is a fairly good price for an official sleepcover. I've seen one review which found it a decent sleepcover. I'm particularly wondering how people found the official sleep cover compares to the eBay/AliExpress etc alternatives. Even with the lowish price, it looks like those covers will be under half the price of the official one, shipped to NZ. But I'm still leaning towards the official sleepcover since I would hope it's a resonable amount better. So given the fairly low price (and even given Aura is also a fairly low price) is hopefully worth it. But still interested in hearing opinions. So far the only commentary I found comparing them was that their magnets may be stronger and they also lack a lip both combined making them harder to open. Of course if anyone wants to recommend some other cover or case, you're welcome although I'd be reluctant to spend much more than USD15 including shipping to NZ for a single cover. Cheers
