Moving to my own Hosting.


Hello Dear Bibliopirate Readers,
I’m letting you know that I’m moving from a wordpress.com hosted site to my privately hosted site. The new address is www.bibliopirate.com . I’m doing this in large part to be able to join an affiliate program to help sell and distribute the books I love to you, and also make a bit towards supporting the site and my reading addiction.
I hope you will still join me over there, to sample my book reviews and news. How else will you hear about the wonderful happenings like Moby Dick being printed on 6 different rolls of toilet paper?
Thank you for reading,
The Biblio-Pirate

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.
