Moby Dick on T-book



Lately the publishing world has been turned upside down by the e-book revolution, and many people are theorizing that the days of traditional publishing are coming to an end. Out of the mess I’ve now seen one unique option out of the massive amount of book options, a t-book. What is a t-book it is my phrase for a toilet paper book. Some one has taken it upon himself to type out all of Herman Melville’s classic on a few rolls of toilet paper.
They’ve recently tried to sell it on Ebay, and somehow it didn’t manage to sell. Maybe next time. It could be that not everyone is over the moon with Moby Dick, and that Nathaniel Philbrick’s new book “Why Read Moby Dick” deserves to be read. Or perhaps nearly $1000 is just too much to pay for 6 rolls of aged toilet paper.

Just think if you were equipped with a t-book, you’d always have something to read while being indisposed in the water closet. I see good things in the future of the t-book.

Echelon’s review Contest


While searching for interesting blogs out there I came across a very neat little Contest. There is an independent publisher Echelon Press that is trying to raise some reviews for a few of their books. In order to enter you need to contact them and you will receive a free download of one of their e-books for review. If they get 50 new reviews by Christmas Eve they will select one winner to receive a free Kindle Touch.
For more information you can check out their blog at:

or email them at: echelonpress@gmail.com
