WATCHMEN Adaptation Coming to HBO: Critical Linking, June 22, 2017

Sponsored by Penguin Books.

Fresh off the critically acclaimed series finale of “The Leftovers,” Lindelof is in talks to develop an adaptation of the comic book series “Watchmen” to the cabler.

This will be HBO’s second attempt at developing a series based on the landmark DC Comics miniseries by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. The premium channel had kicked the tires on a “Watchmen” project in 2014. Sources say Lindelof’s take on the series would be starting over from scratch independent of that effort.

I mean. Ok.

You, like me, probably want properly formatted ebooks for your devices, or books with covers that aren’t white text on a blue background. So Standard Ebooks, a volunteer-driven project, is republishing public domain ebooks to comply with today’s ebook readers and standards. Each book’s page has its word count, reading score, and a synopsis of the title, along with a changelog for the book itself.

Sounds like a useful service.

A year ago, Apple settled a giant class-action lawsuit (details below). The result was that millions of Americans got free credits in their accounts at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or other e-book retailers. If you’re an American who is reading this article and you’ve bought e-books in the past, there’s a very good chance that you were included.

The catch? If they haven’t been used already, these credits will expire this Saturday at midnight Pacific time.

Amazon ebook customers, you might have credits that expire this week!
