Every major player in the trade book industry is about to develop a new obsession: how must our business model change when we reach a level of ebook sales that is dynamically disruptive to the print book ecosystem? This presents a problem to all the incumbent players. Every powerful company in the print book supply chain: the big publishers, the big retailers including Amazon!
They can design them, jacket them, price them, print them, ship them hither and yon and keep track of each separate ISBN in the package, put them on shelves so customers will find them when they arrive and calculate when to take them off the shelves to send them back.

Although there are other skills that these companies have that might port to an all-ebook or ebook-dominant world, none of these do. Growth in sales of the simplest kind of ebook — a direct lift of what is published in print — are exceeding the most aggressive predictions. The IDPF just announced that year-over-year ebook sales for August are triple what they were a year ago! I will.

Or, I am…. That, along with the sour experience of trying to lead on ebooks and being frustrated by what was actually a self-destructive policy by Palm, may have fed their apparent disinterest in ebooks until recently.
But it was clear to everybody that the first round of ebook growth shifted power dramatically to Amazon. Nobody knows the size of the pirate ebook market. Characters get lost in the mix and you really end up not caring about them. The naming convention was cute in the first one, but is really tired in the second one. Just can't recommend even if you liked the first one. Definitely better. I like that the volumes get longer.
A DAY EARLY!!! AMAZING
Lots of tongue-in-cheek, who would of thought bunnies were WMDs? The MC gets more proficient and his patron goddess continues to mature. Even though this was longer it was a smooth reading experience. Why are sequels so hard to do.. Another great read.

A truly worthy sequel to a great first book. And if a Curse—why, then, Who set it there?
Of threats of Hell and Hopes of Paradise! One thing at least is certain—This Life flies; One thing is certain and the rest is Lies; The Flower that once has blown for ever dies. Strange, is it not? And that inverted Bowl they call the Sky, Whereunder crawling coop'd we live and die, Lift not your hands to It for help—for It As impotently moves as you or I. As under cover of departing Day Slunk hunger-stricken Ramazan away, Once more within the Potter's house alone I stood, surrounded by the Shapes of Clay. Shapes of all Sorts and Sizes, great and small, That stood along the floor and by the wall; And some loquacious Vessels were; and some Listen'd perhaps, but never talk'd at all.

Said one among them—"Surely not in vain My substance of the common Earth was ta'en And to this Figure molded, to be broke, Or trampled back to shapeless Earth again. After a momentary silence spake Some Vessel of a more ungainly Make; "They sneer at me for leaning all awry: What!
He's a Good Fellow, and 'twill all be well. So while the Vessels one by one were speaking, The little Moon look'd in that all were seeking: And then they jogg'd each other, "Brother! Now for the Porter's shoulders' knot a-creaking!

Ah, with the Grape my fading life provide, And wash the Body whence the Life has died, And lay me, shrouded in the living Leaf, By some not unfrequented Garden-side. That ev'n buried Ashes such a snare Of Vintage shall fling up into the Air As not a True-believer passing by But shall be overtaken unaware. Indeed, indeed, Repentance oft before I swore—but was I sober when I swore? And then and then came Spring, and Rose-in-hand My thread-bare Penitence apieces tore.
