nttegljmtxmydyvl1mo
for reference books I am always terribly tempted to buy a www.sony.jp/digital-paper/products/DPT-RP1/
huzdbm1mo
Most european books are around the a5 or b5 size, but creatives gotta create
ykmexpqz1mo
๐Ÿ˜‚ fwfxxmgmd wanted to ask about it yesterday, I bought 21 lessons on paper but after 100 pages of struggle I went for kindle version
ntjvtohe1mo
noticing that I donโ€™t hate reading, I hate form factor of books was a revelation
aoxcsfzj1mo
scmghrnxwtjhchfcd yeah i bought an ereader that's a bit bigger, so i can read full-sized pdfs on it in landscape mode, but it's not really cutting it for me.. so either the issue is 1) I seriously want dead tree or 2) I need a properly sized large ereader like DPT-RP1
iamzcpnz1mo
there was a brilliant shitstorm on twitter when some lad cut books in half
evekwwdx1mo
pjfrodrtg what book are you talking about?
wxlcesml1mo
i think it's also the paper/grade that matters too
enzbbkyt1mo
some paperbacks are really shitty feeling too
wzntuusy1mo
maybe a hardcover would help
aizyhdss1mo
for certain shitty paperbacks w/ cheap feeling scratchy paper
tkfxmgpi1mo
like the yellow paper
zyltrext1mo
Iโ€™m fine with < 200 pages books
bfortotb1mo
but this one is 400+
jrwpzfer1mo
is it a good book?
goamjfzj1mo
looks like it's 372 pages
identz1mo
Harari is great on audio also
ocwkep1mo
Paper gsm will factor into quality feeling and bulk
vearsjaa1mo
i looked it up in image search and it looks like it's white paper, seems fine
amnmaq1mo
Some of the mass market paperbacks are on like 60gsm shit thats barely a step above newspapers
zvbdecpe1mo
hmm, paper quality does look a bit shitty, but typical
sfntkfdz1mo
it is, feels like toilet paper
xyakgluh1mo
but the paper is not an issue for me, itโ€™s more about form factor and weight
jyttkqtd1mo
and overall bulkiness
aijunxvk1mo
yeah
cwprlwtx1mo
i don't think it's down to the number of words though
oncgfhvm1mo
i've seen books with 400+ words not feel as bulky
gbawfkxz1mo
so it's definitely the materials, the overall shape, etc
zgwiopsk1mo
indeed
kxgulckr1mo
so if I wanted to force myself to read more I would need to make it easier
khkrvqwi1mo
hence kindle oasis 2 ๐Ÿ˜‚
erfjccmu1mo
and I can highlight unknown words and add them later to anki
mpgbjejc1mo
since English isnโ€™t my mother tongue
etdwnggg1mo
I have the kobo forma
fbsedmfz1mo
it's a bit bigger, almost good enough to read full size pdfs in landscape, and waterproof
tfjcajpw1mo
but not realy good enough for my coding books/pdfs anyways unfortunately
bjlzvoch1mo
i definitely should get a much bigger one
jlsnlepo1mo
hmmm, for pdfs I use ipad
vtxamxfr1mo
guess i've had the kobo forma for a year now and barely used it
tprfpwcn1mo
but thatโ€™s probably not a viable solution ๐Ÿ˜‚
xaibocsm1mo
ah yeah, it's my eyes, bright screen causes strain
femagffl1mo
i need a proper large e-reader that's easy to sideload my files to, would be nice if i could manage it remotely through bluetooth or wifi
bttiwtdj1mo
plugging in cords is lame af
iyulcgoc1mo
i mean besides the email trick, that's a bit annoying
gpevzgib1mo
i'd rather mount the filesystem remotely heh
zimwcixyhiqcq30d
Yeah, I can't use my Kindle Oasis 2 for research/non-fiction. It's driving me crazy.
icltttjdihuyn30d

sbsxtslrbfewd30d

jfgpzvfxpwl30d

qjeikoodvxd30d
ywylskhgrafp30d
How is that useful for them???
wjttlgkfnorj30d
i am not surprised it is logged but still...
kobngokqmkkf30d
i guess you can root your kindle now and install zork
yblmzcgeqdbc30d
i like this hack, to be honest
prbnvbeqbuee30d
Of course, some people augment their Kindles for less idealistic reasons. Iman, a 33-year-old multimedia producer in Massachusetts, who asked not to use his last name to avoid identification in the hacking community, says that as someone who grew up reading physical books, he had gotten used to the ritual of putting his book on the nightstand when he went to bed and seeing the cover image when he woke up. He now has three Kindle devices, and since Amazon doesnโ€™t let you set the wallpaper to whatever book youโ€™re reading, he hacks them to do just that.
xlrobmvz30d
kobo forma doesn't have a pen
rlvlenla30d
kobo forma and kindle oasis seem similar.. both water proof, both have the page buttons on the side
xobisqng30d
kobo forma has some lighting issue, it's not evenly lighted
ufmnyyqo30d
only bothers me if i remember
yteyabjla28d
I have a kobo aura and I absolutely love it!


With my overdrive/Libby account from the Toronto Public Library, I can borrow books and then download them directly into the kobo on wifi. I read 47 books last year, all for free from the library ๐Ÿ˜€

Most of you will have known Harvardโ€™s Clayton Christensen through his books on disruptive innovation. Heโ€™s on every โ€œmust readโ€ startup book list.

Leukemia took Dr. Christensen last week.

Hereโ€™s a great reflection on a simple but profound life lesson he taught us:
_โ€œDecide what you stand for. And then stand for it all the time.โ€_

Ahhhโ€ฆ. I canโ€™t post links yet. Iโ€™m a new-ish member.
Article on Medium is called โ€œA final lesson from Clayton Christensen on the dangers of marginal thinkingโ€
mrqkfx28d
ldumhgnmaamn any specific book recommendations?
pttwfttbddc28d
Consider these... both in his โ€œThe Innovatorโ€™sโ€ฆโ€ series of 4 books.

Christensenโ€™s most well known work is probably the first one, โ€œThe Innovatorโ€™s Dilemmaโ€ in which Christensen explains why most companies miss out on new waves of innovation. This is more academic and a longer, harder read.

โ€œThe Innovatorโ€™s DNAโ€ is a very practical, accessible work about mastering 5 skills of disruptive innovators. This one had several co-authors, and is much softer, quick reading. tjblttn
hdrksgwr28d
I read innovators dilemma back in 2002 or 2003
jsbkuatw28d
Good book but things have changed dramatically too
lzikbjwb28d
A lot of corps have changed how they operate since then
yjltar28d
thanks URQ89PN4A!
qrmdvjwe26d
just cut in half ๐Ÿ˜„
mjpxsdjn26d
๐Ÿ˜‚ yeah, itโ€™s probably the same dude nomadlist.slack.com/archives/C038SCTLR/p1580295319026000
lvridf10d
hey #books, how does the 3rd Harari book compare to the first 2?
hufaeknljy10d
Horribly, if you are referring to 21 lessons.
Sapiens and Homo Deus are great. 21 lessons seems like a patronising collection of blog posts in comparison. Check the reviews.
xpaile10d
thanks for saving me an audible credit
vemzukxhl10d
Agree with the above - absolute drivel
yprjtkscl6d
Not good at all
xyackrdestil5d
I found 21 Lessons alright, but generally Iโ€™d agree the first 2 are the main thing
