Have I got eNews for you

The Guardian Newspaper have introduced a series of eBooks centering on Football Clubs - Using original reports from the Guardian and Observer archives, the  new Football Classics ebooks – part of the Guardian Shorts series – will revisit some of the game's great stories, the top clubs and personalities, and show how football writing has evolved. The series starts with Chelsea: 20 Defining Matches - a story that began in 1905 with the new club's first match away at Stockport. It was a 1-0 defeat, but the Guardian's correspondent that day was still impressed by the big names they assembled for their debut season, including the new goalkeeper, 22-stone crowd-pleaser William "Fatty" Foulke.

U.S. District Court Judge Denise Cote denied a request from Apple and ebook publishers to dismiss a class action lawsuit accusing them of price fixing, and at the same time said that Apple and Steve Jobs were in the middle of the conspiracy.“In short, Apple did not try to earn money off of eBooks by competing with other retailers in an open market,” Judge Cote said in her ruling, according to paidContent. “Rather, Apple accomplished this goal by [helping] the suppliers to collude, rather than to compete independently.” The ruling means a class action lawsuit against Apple and publishers can move forward, but is not a ruling against the defendants.Apple had requested the case be dismissed but the judge was having none of it.

In order to celebrate indie publishing Beginning May 15 and running until the end of the month, acclaimed indie publisher Bancroft Press will host a contest on its Facebook page, giving away four free eBooks. The primary prize will be an advance copy of Elizabeth Leiknes’s praised novel The Understory, coming June 1.
