Rand McNally

Rand McNally, the well-known atlas company, has released three atlases for the Kindle: Washington State, Southern California, and Northern California. I was pleased to help in the design and implementation of these great books, and I think they exemplify the possibilities that are available on the Kindle for those with the courage and know-how to pursue them. Here is a screenshot from the Washington State Road Atlas:

The Kindle Chronicles

I forgot to mention this in my post yesterday, but I am going to be on the Kindle Chronicles podcast this Friday. Len Edgerly is a great guy, and his Kindle podcast is a real benefit to the community. If you have never listened before, take a look through the archives and see the great people he has interviewed already. Then make sure to listen to the podcast Friday!

TOC conference tutorial

Sorry for the continued silence here at I have been swamped with formatting work (that is never a bad thing) and working hard to get my book finished as soon as I can.

I do have some great news to tell you, though. I have been asked to teach a 1-hour tutorial on formatting books for the Kindle at the O'Reilly Tools of Change (TOC) conference in February. If you are going to be at the conference or in New York in February, please drop by and listen in!
