New feature! eBooks of Plaza stories
« on: April 04, 2019, 02:19:36 AM »
I'm experimenting with offering all the Plaza stories as downloadable eBooks (free of course), for reading offline.
As a first step, please could you download this TEST BOOK and let me know how well/badly it works on your ereader app, software or device:
https://grometsplaza.net/testbook.epub

the book is in epub format, which works on almost all devices (iPhone/Pads, Android, Nook, Kobo, computers, etc). For help with ebooks this page looks useful https://www.wikihow.com/Open-EPUB-Files.

If you use a Kindle, you'll need to use this mobi format file instead:
https://grometsplaza.net/testbook.mobi

Any problems? I'll need to know exactly which device and which version of the ereader software you are using please.

(My plan is to build this feature into the existing story search engine, so you can find a selection of stories by your favourite author, or with certain tags, and then download a custom ebook of just those stories.)

This is great idea! (I download stories I want to read and manually convert them anyway).

I usually use Bookfusion (both as web app and mobile apps) as reader.
Bookari (android reader app which I also use)
Both works fine with test epub file.

Works fine with Android 6 Marshmallow and Moon+ Reader Pro. Good idea!

I also think this is a great idea, so far I have used the default reader in Windows 10 and had to hunt one for Chromebook and found an extension called EpubReader  that works well.
