Moving to Goodreads

Effective with this post
I am moving all blogging to
I feel Twitter is fully adequate
for most communication I was doing
here
and Kindle is
my main focus now
and in the future.
Goodreads is a perfect fit
at this point.
Hope to see you there.

Replacing The Car Is A Tumblr Blog and a Kindle Book

Replacing The Car.

In my effort to get my ideas out I have created blog posts over time and morphed them into short Kindle books that sell for a few dollars and have the merit of introducing notions that may be far from the thinking of most readers. I naturally hope they become more common. This blog has the merit of getting indexed on search engines so it is possible that some may be led here, The book itself need cost nothing if one has a Kindle and belongs to Amazon Select. I believe it can also be borrowed which in fact reimburses the author more than a royalty would. The main point is to underline my main thesis. That we are engaged in a global struggle to defeat sprawl and the car as the default means of transportation. I am not holding my breath. You would be amazed at the progress this idea has made in the last 50 years.

Kindle Blogs Up and Running

Just put my blog up on Kindle. Should be available in a few days.

You must create a separate Amazon account just for this.

You need banking info, screen shots (they have good directions) and other info about your blog/s and I believe they must approve each submission, so I doubt that such things as affiliate sites will be accepted.

Kindle Is Coming Paper Is Going

I publish my own stuff now. The books just as good as when I had publishers. And they are digital. They do not decimate trees.

These books are mainly available to users of the Kindle.

Kindle is an ebook reader smaller than many paperbacks. It costs over $300 and it has not had a second version yet. The first version was plugged by Oprah and it is now out of stock until February. I don’t own one yet.

You can easily see all my books on Kindle. And on that resplendent page are links to find out more.

Will Kindle make me a fortune? Nothing else on the Web has. HuffPo does not pay. I do not like Adsense. I resist asking for PayPal contributions. Anyway I am not hurting yet as I live like a hermit.

Still the Kindle royalty of about one-third what my list prices are would be excellent income if my Kindle Books attained popularity.

And I have a certain satisfaction in being part of the first wave of writers doing the books of the future. Of course, in 100 years, Amazon might cull slow-sellers from their list of Kindle Books and then I would really be gone for good. Sic Transit Whatever..

You are naturally wondering how YOU can get in on all this. So I will give you a link I believe will do the trick. It took me ages to find it.

It is not exactly simple, but if you have manuscripts for sale it is most satisfying to know there is a place to put them with a few clicks, once you figure it out.

Elucidation from the Kindle order page:

Availability
Due to heavy customer demand, Kindle is sold out. Please ORDER KINDLE NOW to reserve your place in line. We prioritize orders on a first come, first served basis. This item will arrive after December 24. Note that Kindles cannot currently be sold or shipped to customers living outside of the U.S.
