"Quantations: A Guide to Quantum Living in the 21st Century"

Quantations cover

After reading my friend Nassim Nicholas Taleb's new book, "The Bed of Procrustes," a collection of his aphorisms, I went down to the basement and dusted off a box filled with copies of my 2002 tome (above and below).

I reread it this past week and I must say it's not that bad.

Look inside the book here.

Goal for 2011: get my book up on Kindle, Sony Reader, Nook, Google eBooks and any and all possible ebook platforms.

This was also my 2010 goal, I will confess, but everyone I contacted to help me just couldn't understand that a TechnoDolt™ needs not just support but a stainless steel armature.

Telling me to do this, that and the other simply doesn't cut it.

Stay tuned, you'll be the first to know when — not if — I succeed.

It should be noted here that once upon a time, when iUniverse — my self-publisher — bestrode the earth like a wee colossus, you could read "Quantations" online for free on its website, which I thought was great.

I had a link from bookofjoe right to it, because I figured why waste your good money when you can get it for free?

I was way ahead of Cory Doctorow in that respect.

But alas, iUniverse was bought out and the file type they used disappeared down the dead format black hole.

Isn't print great?

Formats come and go and yet we can still read Babylonian tablets.

Something to think about.

Clouds can blow away too.

FunFact: bookofjoe is available on Kindle for a mere $1.99/month.

It appeared in the Kindle store on May 18, 2009.

You could look it up.

I think I have two subscribers (thank you, Joel and Rick).

The Canuckle dollar is nearly at par with ours. Why is the book nearly seven dollars more for Canadians?

So great. I'm up 50% today and it's not even over!

Three. You have THREE Kindle subscribers.

I could rip and scan - but that leaves the formatting issue......

I've misplaced my copy, either that or the cat ate it. Or perhaps the house. I'm not going to look just in case by my looking for it, would cause it to die or disappear.

How about an ebook download via google checkout or some such in the sidebar of BOJ?

How about a contest with Quantations as the prize? Or the complete printed works of Joseph A. Stirt, MD? Would take two things off my Amazon wishlist, making it that much easier for people to figure out what to buy for me.

I just received my two copies of Quantations in the mail yesterday, one to keep, one to give to my bibliophile friend for Christmas.
