Anyone else seen this:

Basically it's an eReader/notepad in one. And it can handle both mobi and epub type files, including Amazon books. It's android based and runs android apps.

Looks intriguing ... if you order now it says it ships in August ....

This month, we can pick 2 of 8

July 2019 First reads

One is actually listed simply as 'mystery'. We'll see. ;)

eta: the one listed as 'historical' looks like it could be a sort of mystery as well, based on the blurb.

Amazon First Reads

Choice of 8 this month

Domestic Suspense:   Historical Fiction:

Psychological Thriller:   Biographical Fiction:

Literary Fiction:   Memoir:

Children:   World Literature:

Some possibilities, maybe .... off to check them out. :)

eta: The historical fiction is WWII ... but at least this time it's set in the Phillipines and not Occupied France. The biographical fiction is a similar time period -- the main character escapes Franco's Spain to the US. The literary fiction is about Picasso. And more spooky/creepy stuff and no straight up mystery or romance.

I've used the site for the last bunch of years to keep track of series -- proper order and how far along I am in reading. I've popped in several times over the last week to update. This morning, there's this message:

We recently lost our primary source of income, Amazon Associate sales. Due to a minor error on our part, we unknowingly had in infraction of their terms. We tried to appeal after we corrected the issue, but was not successful and they terminated our account. Over the years, we have had donations from our wonderful supporters, but it is not enough to cover our operating costs. We are extremely sad to have to close down the site after almost 10 years. Thank you for all your support over the years!!

Please login to download your book data as a CSV file before July 1, 2019.

Unfortunately, while I'm perhaps inclined to be sympathetic, I'm mostly annoyed that they gave no warning to the folks who'd been using it. As I said, I've been on the site several times in the past week and there was NOTHING to indicate that there was anything wrong. Further, the word 'login' in the text above, as displayed on the site, is a link which does take you to a log in page. But when you try to do so, nothing happens. I'll check again over the next few days in case it's a transition issue, but mostly I just think they've handled the problem badly.

Will have to check into what Goodreads has as far as tracking series, I guess.
