no customer reviews yet, $0.00
Amazon just announced the new Kindle Format 8 ("KF8") which will include HTML5 support, giving publishers much more flexibility and control over page layout. Publishers will be getting guidelines soon, and this intro should be somewhat helpful. Also HTML5 support is officially a part of the ePub standard.
This overview of some of the features provided to ebook content providers is probably worth a look at the $0.00 price, especially when it's published by O'Reilly. It was released mid-Oct, and the free promo may be over soon.

DESCRIPTION: Relive the Moment When the Bruins Won It All! After thirty-nine torturous, winless years, the Bruins finally returned home with their prize--but bringing the Stanley Cup back to Boston was no easy feat.The heated series, arguably the scrappiest in play off history, took a toll on the Black and Gold and their fans. Brutal hits and at-the-buzzer losses were enough to wane anyone's faith. Fans couldn't help but cringe as they watched their favorite team repeat their history of nightmarish defeats. 2011 was not going to be the year for them. Yet, the Bruins somehow pulled through, winning four out of the last five playoff games including a thrilling shut-out in Game 7. Not only did the Bruins fulfill their incredible wish, but they also won recognition as the only NHL team to ever win three games en route to the Stanley Cup. Bruin Redemption captures every moment of the Bruins' journey toward victory. With an in-depth background of the team's struggles and thrilling snapshots of the games leading up to the big win, readers will want to relive this unforgettable ride again and again.

Blood Country (Wwl Mystery)
Author: Mary Logue
DESCRIPTION: Set in the scenic bluff country along the Mississippi River of western Wisconsin, this first in a series launch introduces Claire Watkins, a deputy sheriff for the Pepin County Police Department. Claire, a former Minneapolis police detective, and her 10-year-old daughter Meg fled the Twin Cities after her husband, Steve, also a cop, was killed. When Landers Anderson, an elderly neighbor who befriended Claire and Meg, dies of a heart attack after being sideswiped with a shovel, Claire determines to find the culprit. This involves delving into Landers's family history and investigating the machinations of a right-wing group, Homeowners of America, that is buying up property to build an environmentally unsound development. At the same time, Meg fearfully admits to Claire that she saw the man who killed Steve. Claire contacts her former partner, Det. Bruce Jacobs, and prods him into accelerating the investigation into Steve's death. The murderer, who has a mysterious police informant, tries to kidnap Meg but instead grabs Claire's pregnant sister Bridget, who gets away. Meanwhile, Claire's complex relationship with Bruce (they slept together once, he carries a torch for her, she's not sure she's ready) is challenged by her attraction to a neighbor, Rich Haggard. While the Anderson case has a satisfying solution, the mystery surrounding Steve's murder concludes with a killer most readers will have identified long before he's revealed. Although the plot development is heavy-handed and the dialogue often stilted, Logue has created some appealing characters in an attractive, offbeat setting.
