I can haz free cat books?

I’m switching out stuff from Dropbox to Google Drive. The eight wallpapers I posted earlier have a new home, and all the free ebooks, cats and landscapes are also there.

The 100 cats (nearly 150 cats only $0.99!) ebook is still at iTunes, along with the also free ebook, 20 Monsters.

Looking back 1 v.2

I think I fixed the composition problems from the first version. Looking back on Vernazza in the Parco Nazionalle de Cinque Terre, Italy.

The medium size…

October 9, 2012

The medium sized 22 cats book measures roughly 6 by 8 inches, or 15 by 20 cm. It contains the same 22 images as the small 22 cats book which I distributed as a promotion piece. You can download a free PDF of the small book. The medium sized 22 cats book available from me is $25.00 including shipping and handling. There are only ten of them – a few strategically distributed at finer Über Cool shops everywhere.

The 22 cats book features a selection of images from the ebook series 100 catsavailable on the iTunes bookstore.

dougrogers:

A mystery plainly explained. There is no mystery.

Originally posted on Essays in Idleness:

Recently I’ve been avidly reading a Buddhist book sent to me by a certain reader last year (thank you Ashin S.) titled How to Live Without Fear And Worry by the late Ven. K Sri. Dhammananda. In particular, I found an interesting passage on page 121:

The mystery of birth and death is very simple. The coming together of mind and matter – also known as the five aggregates – is called birth. The dissolution of these aggregates is called death. And the recombination of these aggregates is called rebirth, and so that cycle will go on repeatedly until such time as we attain the blissful state of Nibbana [Nirvana]

This is a very concise, articulate explanation to something that I feel is often very confusing to people who are curious or new to Buddhism. When I used to surf Internet Buddhist forums, I used to see the same questions…

What a fast turnaround! I thought I would have some time to set up a page for the book before then.

Ocean Views eBook

April 19, 2012

The Ocean Views eBook can be downloaded directly from here.

It seems to be stalled stubbornly under review, so may not be available through the iTunes book store. Once you have the download completed, drag the file onto iTunes, then sync your iPad. If you are viewing this post from an iPad, it will download directly.

The objection—repeated boilerplate—from review staff is that:

“Books must be of sufficient length or functionality. We encourage you to review your book concept and evaluate whether you can incorporate functionality, content, or both to enhance the user experience.”

Should any of you choose to download and look through this eBook, I would appreciate any feedback on what I could do to meet the guidelines.

UPDATE April 20 7 pm. As CaptnKrunch pointed out in the Apple discussion forums, the book was displaying basically nothing when the iPad was turned to portrait mode. The link above goes to the presumably correct version. I have uploaded a corrected version to the iTunes store, and, well, we’ll see in about a week.

Aside from that, the boilerplate error message is quite non-helpful. Kind of like saying, “There’s a crooked blade of grass in that baseball field over there. Do you have a bulldozer?”

Update April 23 10:25 PM Yes, that was the problem. Book should be in the stores any time now.
