Comment: Re:And Oh the Formats to Support! (Score 2) 207

by kieran (#36191400) Attached to: Ebooks Now Outselling Print Books At Amazon

I just made a decision on what format I was happiest with, and the rest came from there. Having decided that ePub would be best for books and PDF for magazines/other stuff, I also chose to specify that both must be unencrypted and looked for a store that sold them in the UK and a device that would read both.

WHSmith sells ePub books, but they're encrypted: so I buy them there and decrypt them myself, and keep them backed up on my PC and online. I went with the Sony Reader PRS-350 as the reader, and have been pretty happy with it. When I eventually replace it, I'll probably just be looking for something else that can read unencrypted epub abd pdf files.

Don't be irreplaceable, if you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted.

Working...
