Great to see someone appreciate a good feature. Thanks for your post. I think it's a very valuable addition, as is the support for ePub.
I'm glad to hear you've heard from B&N regarding your old eReader library. I'm still waiting and think a call will be placed this week to figure out where all my books have gone.
I concur that this will be a nice feature once my books are transfered over.
I have not receivied any info on opting in. And its now December 10, past the last sale date.
I'm glad that the sites are combining and that I'll be able to read everything under one reader, however, my library is slightly larger than normal. I have almost 3000 books between the two websites and considerably more than 2 will not be transferred. I've been expecting this and will keep the reader apps on my computer and so be able to continue to enjoy those books that aren't being transferred.
Has anyone seen cases where the thumbnail picture is for the wrong book? I have several cases of this. In two cases, the actual incorrect book has been transferred. Much fun as the children's books are, the Arthur C Clarke Venus Prime novels are a little more my age...
I am seriously happy over the fact that most of the books I ordered in Microsoft Reader format are still being transferred. I thought I'd lost the Roger Moore autobiography My Word is My Bond without getting a chance to read it....
Thanks for the heroic efforts to convert these libraries for everyone.
