Let us know if there's any book you'd particularly like to see as an e-book (nb: we may or may not be able to produce an electronic version, but we'll try). We're also very curious as to what your e-book reading experience has been, what type of device you use, or are considering using, and where you acquire e-books.
Many thanks for your help!
Will the eBook editions be less expensive than the paperback editions?
It would be nice to have the Elizabeth David books available on eBook format, to consult while grocery shopping.
Wish Her Safe at Home
The Summer Book
Memoirs of Montparnasse
The Slaves of Solitude
The Notebooks of Joseph Joubert
The Lord Chandos and Other Writings
Hons and Rebels
The Unknown Masterpiece
The Wedding of Zein
and all the books I would like to see published by NYRB
P.S. I do not believe ebook readers represent the dark side. I have limited space in my house. My local library does not carry any NYRB titles. My local library also charges for interlibrary loan and any additional fees charged by the lending institution. I regularly recycle books, but I usually fill the space immediately with books that have been sitting on the floor.
I expect the iPad will allow you to see the covers in color, if not in the first iteration then in the second. Apparently, an application also exists for transferring one's Kindle books to the iPad at least that was what I was told by a Mac representative today. I am not sure about the legalities of this arrangement. Supposedly, Amazon wishes to hop on board.
