Some of you may remember a post we ran last Wednesday, May 1, about a ridiculous website calling itself Blognix, and which had seemingly cloned TeleRead’s entire site—content, design and all. Well, I suppose I was remiss in mentioning that just two days later, and without too much of a [...]

I used to be a library junkie with books piled on my nightstand. I’d be constantly renewing books until I finished all of them. There had to be a way to escape the clutter. That’s when I discovered e-book apps for my old Blackberry. I bought plenty of books and read and read and read. I even [...]

As you can see we have come a long way from a couple of days ago. The site is running much better and, at least for me, is actually faster than it was before.

As you know, David Rothman recently had a heart attack. Also, I have been out of the country for the last three weeks, so Teleread has been kind of slow as a result. But I’m back now and will have more time for this blog. Obviously, filling in for David will be difficult, and I’m not [...]

In other non-Kindle news, I am happy to report that TeleRead now is serving full RSS feeds again. Apparently, during one of our WordPress upgrades, the More/Read Rest of Post hyperlink was preventing RSS readers from seeing entire articles—just the parts until the More tag. But with the Full [...]
