daily_links_1Daily Links for Monday, March 7, 2016:

Two Workarounds for Missing Book Length Dots with New Kindle Update (The Ebook Reader) –  Yes, the new update is that bad….

Onyx Boox Max eReader Up For Pre-Order – 13″ Screen, Android, 585 Euros (The Digital Reader)

Welcome to Canada, American techies! And, yes, we love e-books (Teleread) – Hysterically funny piece of facts we should know before we say “If ___ wins, I am moving to Canada.”

Scottish chapbooks now online! (National Library of Scotland) – These are absolutely delightful, especially the ones for children!

Apple users, beware: First live ransomware targeting Macs found ‘in the wild’ (CNET) –  Time to get rid of the idea that MAC users are safer from this stuff than PC users.

Deals of the Day:

Amazon’s Kindle Daily Deals includes four books in the Dominic Grey series for $1.99 each.

As part of Today’s Deals, Amazon is offering a Logitech Harmony Ultimate Remote with Customizable Touch Screen and Closed Cabinet RF Control – Black (915-000201) for $179.99. One of these smart remotes is on my tech wish list so I can replace the 5 remotes sitting on the coffee table, LOL!

And, Amazon is still offering $20 off the Kindle, Kindle Paperwhite and the Kindle for Kids Bundle. You can also save $30 on the Fire HD 6 – it’s only $69.99. I own 2 of these and love them –  my review is  here.

The Barnes and Noble Nook Daily Find is Two Across by Jeffrey Bartsch for $1.99. The Romance Daily Find is Hard to Come By (Hard Ink Series #3) by Laura Kaye for $1.99.

Kobo’s Daily Deal is Full Throttle: Six Thrillers by Robert Swartwood for $2.99.

iTunes’ Weekly Bestsellers Under $4 includes The Big Kitty by Clare Donally for $1.99.

(A note on Daily Deals: All prices current at the time of posting and subject to change. Most items marked Daily Deals are good for only the day posted.

Many large promotions have discount pricing that is set by the publisher. This usually means that titles can be found at a discount price across most platforms (with iTunes sometimes being the exception). If you have a favorite retailer you like to patronize, check the title on that website. There is a good chance that they will be matching the sale price.)

Daily Links are interesting links I discover as I go about my online day. The frequency and number of links posted depend upon the daily news. I also post other, different links of interest on Twitter and on the Google Plus eBook Evangelist Page.
