I am the former Editor-in-Chief of TeleRead, the Internet’s first blog devoted to ebooks. I now run a curated Twitter feed devoted to ebooks, elibraries, and epublishing.
This is a listing of those tweets for the last week. Click on the article name to go to the original article. A new listing will be published on No Shelf Required each Sunday night.
If you are interested in following the feed in real time, follow me on Twitter: @paulkbiba Paul Biba
