Disappointed to discover there's no longer a purchase option for my DIY Bookbinding ebook at http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920020905.do. Sadly, +O'Reilly recently stopped all direct sales of ebooks from their own website, choosing to distribute only via their Safari subscription platform and Amazon. Because this product was always designed primarily for PDF format (and ultimately created in only that format), it was never available on either Safari or Amazon, which require different formats, which means it’s more difficult to find as an ebook. But thankfully, it’s still available at the Maker Shed (Maker Media inherited the book when it spun off as a separate division from O’Reilly Media), so if you’re still looking for a pretty PDF, you can find and buy it there.

Rereading To Kill a Mockingbird before the release of Go Set a Watchman (no spoilers, please!) and it must be a very recent printing.

For all publishers on all technical subjects, physical book sales at the cash register have plummeted the during 2014 and 2015. You will notice that last year only one week surpassed the same week from the prior year. And this year, not one single week has been ahead of last year. This is a market still looking for bottom. The fortunate news for a few publishers is that direct and digital sales are off-setting the lose of print sales.

I'm really surprised nobody is commenting on the deeper problem with this stamp. Where's the outrage for the egregious comma splice?!
