Butler Shaffer joins the ePub archive

June 25, 2010 by

Newly added to our ePub archive: Butler Shaffer’s Boundaries of Order: Private Property as a Social System.

We have also just added America’s Great Depression and Rothbard vs. the Philosophers, both by Murray N. Rothbard.

The Mises.org ePub collection is at 43 titles and growing. We recommend Adobe Digital Editions for reading ePub files on your desktop or laptop. For an online ePub reader, we recommend O’Reilly’s Bookworm. ePub files can also be put directly on your iPad via iTunes, and as of the release of iOS4, iPhones work the same way — if you download iBooks. Viewing mises.org/epub from your iPhone or Android will let you download these titles direclty to your phone’s mobile reader. To put these books on your Kindle, you’ll need to use Calibre.

I wonder if it is possible to be one of the publisher of free books at iBooks store…

Unfortunately, in an ipad, if you click on the epub link in safari, it does not (yet?) give the option to open it in ibooks. For now, at least, you have to download that file on a real computer, move it to ituens, then sync your ipad with itunes. This is odd, since for PDFs you can just put them directly into iBooks on the ipad, at least if it’s attached to an email.

Same in iPhone with .epub

It works for iPhone from the “Direct links for iPhone page” (blog.mises.org/epub). However, this page does not seem to be up to date. It does not have the most recent book from Shaffer, or the new study guides for HA or MES.

But from mises.org/epub I get “Download failed – Safari can not download this file” error.

Actually it does, as of the latest public build. However, you have to have iBooks installed and when you attempt to open an epub link, it will give you a gray screen and you have to scroll a bit to the right to see the dialog box, because it opens off the frame. This is a really bad bug, but don’t worry, the devs know about it.

This is such a great service. I recently bought a Sony Reader and have been quite busy filling it up with content from Mises.org. Some books I ended up buying in hard copy as well (Like Human Action and Man, Economy, and State) because they really needed to be displayed on a bookshelf :)
