I love it – two librarians rummage around in the stacks at Awful Library Books, including such classics as a title about cats’ sex lives

Could by Mayhem, but not quite

This is an amusing cover for your Kindle or other ebook reader.

Check out the linked picture of how one ebook title looks on an assortment of different screens.

Ah, the joys (not) of ebooks with DRM. This is going to be the same issue I have with my Astak EZReader/Hanlin V3.

  1. (Whoops, just dropped a crumb on my keyboard, and it fell through…)


    Mayhem, I’m sure the heat contributes as well. Don’t be embarassed about the basket thing – Gandalf rolls around on the table, too close to the edge and falls off pretty regularly. But shhhhh! Don’t let on that you know. He’ll be embarassed.

  2. That library site is hilarious. In a sad kinda way. I have a book on highways of New Jersey that a friend found for me in a discard bin at a library, maybe I’ll scan and send. Although it was being discarded…

  3. DRM sucks. And, yes, I am a software architect/programmer saying this. After all, what happens when you need to reload DRM’d software after you need to reinstall your OS? Not right to say you need to buy the DRM’d software again.

  4. I love your linkity posts…

    I KNOW, contests, contests everywhere – I can’t keep up with it all. lol

    Have a great day Chris..

    I’m buried.


  5. My Cat’s In Love would make a great poster. But then, the 70’s.

    Love the kindle cover!

    Thanks for the link to Bleak History, I haven’t read John Shirley in awhile.

    That cat almost has eyes as big as Mayhem’s! I think the toy basket should be put on a time out for bad behavior.

  6. The library site reminds me of this museum that is at one of the local movie theaters. It is the museum of bad art, and it is hilariously bad. A few items are actually submitted by the artists, who I believe must not be taking themselves too seriously. They are all bad on so many levels!

  7. Thanks for the ereader links, again! I’m hoping the color technology will get less power sucking sometime int he future.

  8. Wow… thanks Chris for alllll the heads up!! Did not realize that so much was going on!!! I hope you had a Great night and have a wonderful tomorrow!

    Mayhem… don’t worry about the basket, put that tiara on and show it whos boss!!!

  9. Some of the Awful Library Books are hysterical! I loved the old book about computers.

    That’s the same look I get from Katie when I take a bath or shower. The “you’re getting wet!” look.

    May I’m sure the toy basket tried to sneak up on you.
