Scribe faces a strong Chinese rival able to turn handwritten notes into searc...
by David Rothman
5 Jan 2023 at 10:51pm
Could this be one reason why the Kindle Scribe has gone on sale? For $400, Lenovo later this year is to sell a Scribe rival able to record lectures with two built-in mikes and turn handwritten notes into searchable text. Handily, you can sync the audio recordings with notes. Perhaps a tool for journalists, too, […]


Sherlock Holmes ?Case Book,? Virginia Woolf classic, others added to public d...
by David Rothman
5 Jan 2023 at 8:15pm
“On January 1, 2023, copyrighted works from 1927 will enter the US public domain.?1? They will be free for all to copy, share, and build upon. These include Virginia Woolf?s To The Lighthouse and the final Sherlock Holmes stories by Arthur Conan Doyle, the German science-fiction film Metropolis and Alfred Hitchcock?s first thriller, compositions by […]


Kindle?s 10.2? Scribe drops to $295 on sale: I got one
by David Rothman
5 Jan 2023 at 3:56pm
Eager to try out the Kindle Scribe?s handwritten-note capability, I gambled $419 on the 64GB version with the deluxe pen. Loser! I was up against such nuisances as a 50MB cap on PDF files transferred online, and I didn’t want to mess with workarounds. Not to mention the Scribe screen being too slick for me […]


Wing-nut censors: One more reason we need TWO national digital library systems
by David Rothman
15 Dec 2022 at 6:54am
The public library news out of League City, Texas, is grim. By 4-3, the city council voted to ban “obscene” books and let a new board decide which ones are right for minors. It’s part of an ugly national trend reported in the New York Times: “According to a recent report from the free speech […]


Vellum 3.4 publishing software is out: $200+ but worth it
by David Rothman
16 Nov 2022 at 9:43am
I loved Draft2Digital‘s ability to create ePub books from Word files, not just distribute them to places ranging from Amazon and B&N to Apple and the Overdrive library service. D2D can grind out printer-ready PDF files, too. Also Mobi ones. D2D remains the main way for book files from me to go to multiple stores, […]


The national library endowment idea must evolve
by David Rothman
16 Nov 2022 at 1:41am
Regardless of the Carnegie tradition, should libraries even accept major donations from the wealthy? More than a few librarians hate the very talk of an endowment and of relying on the super rich, but to take their money doesn?t necessarily mean to agree with them?one advantage of a multi-donor approach without one billionaire kingpin in control.


Will Amazon?s new ePub capability help the anti-DRM movement? Thoughts?
by David Rothman
28 May 2022 at 3:20pm
Skimming news reports, some optimists may think they’ll soon be able to send their existing Kobo, Apple, or Nook books to Kindles since those other brands use ePub. But DRM in many cases will still get in the way—even with Amazon’s Send to Kindle feature being able as of late 2022 to convert ePub to […]


Bring back Teddy and do anti-trust for real, especially in the ebook business
by David Rothman
9 May 2022 at 3:31am
One of the most fearsome anti-trusters was Teddy Roosevelt, a Republican president who jousted with the oil companies. We know who today’s oil companies are. Big Tech in so many cases. And Google has just reminded us with its appalling ban on Android reading apps that don’t use Google’s payment system. Goodbye to full-function Kindle […]


Voice Dream Reader for macOS: A quick first look
by David Rothman
3 May 2022 at 9:23am
I have long been a gungho fan of Voice Dream Reader, a text to speech reader that can nicely display text as you’re listening. I’ve enjoyed the ease of use, above-average accuracy of voices, and flexibility of the text display, which offers a number of fonts and other settings. Now, after starting out in iOS […]


Are war novels too scary for kids?
by David Rothman
30 Apr 2022 at 2:15pm
Are war novels too scary for kids? My answer is: ?Lots of ?It depends.?? The biggest question would be, ?How old is the child emotionally?? Some 14-year-olds can handle a bloody war novel that may not be right for the most sensitive high school seniors. But due to all the much-televised horrors from the war […]


Great novels tell uncomfortable truths
by A TeleRead Contributor
19 Nov 2021 at 6:49pm
Editor’s note: This commentary originally appeared in the blog Better Living through Beowulf, written by the ever-wise Robin Bates, a retired English professor. I love his headline. Of course, the masterminds of some censorship campaigns may care less about anyone’s truth than about votes and donations. But so many of their followers do fear the […]


Don?t stick a fork in books yet
by Felix
23 Aug 2021 at 11:29pm
I just came across an excellent write-up called How to Fork a Book: The Radical Transformation of Publishing. “Forking” is a term borrowed from open source software, whose license allows anyone to make their own modified versions that diverge from the original, taking it in another direction, like a fork in a path. Well, nowadays […]

Marko Markovi? is the magician of a designer who created the striking cover of No Taller than My Gun, my new thriller. I’m not the only Marko fan. Below, reproduced with permission, is an interview by Diamond-Michael Scott for his Great Books+Geat Minds mailing list. His subscription information is here. – D.R. By DIAMOND-MICHAEL SCOTT […]


?No Taller than My Gun? thriller: Scary summer read, but the ending?s happy
by David Rothman
25 Jun 2021 at 6:21am
Notice? I haven’t posted as much as usual on TeleRead. I’ve had a distraction—the publication of my new thriller, No Taller than My Gun. The Kindle ebook and the paperback went on sale at Amazon this week, and other global stores and digital formats will follow. Hardback and audiobook versions will appear. Gun is a […]
