An Experiment In ePub eBooks

Two posts have been massively popular this week:

1922: Follow This Rule — If You Want To Be Popular

1922: Why I Quit Being So Accommodating

I decided to run both through the dotEPUB Firefox Add-on and turn them into ePub eBooks for people to download via Google Docs.

The first essay includes the original images.

The second one lacks the images due to dotEPUB having an image limit.

Download here:

Google Docs: 1922: Follow This Rule — If You Want To Be Popular

Google Docs: 1922: Why I Quit Being So Accommodating

When the Google Docs screen appears, click on File and then Download to grab each one.

I’d be interested to hear from people who view them on tablets. I won’t be doing additional work on these eBooks. This is just an experiment. People who balked at reading them online might want to try them via these eBooks now.

    Ditto for me…opens perfect in iBooks on ipad 3
    Thank you!

  3. Would not open on my laptop. Doesn’t recognize epub.

  4. Downloaded just fine on my iPad despite Google Docs coming up in German when I opened it in WP reader. I had to open with Safari to get the download to iBooks to work. Is it normal that it says all the images were removed?

    My samsung tablet has no problem downloading and reading either. I have a free reader called aldiko installed.
