I’m shocked – and glad now that I took screenshots.
Epub Bud, free ebook site of 7+ years, is gone!
Last I looked (in December) they were still there. And “Arcana”, with the gorgeous cover Iain made for it, was still on the right-hand top of the “Browse” page.
So many things have disappeared since he was killed.
Sometimes I get the illogical feeling that they only existed because he did. For instance the cinema at Woodlands, and countless little coffee shops he and I used to frequent, with and without kids.
And then sometimes I feel as though they collapsed as a result of the same terminal break-down of South Africa of which he became a victim.
I have begun the task of tidying up loose ends – such as, finding out which websites he was keeping up and figuring out what to do with each.
Which brings us to Honeymead Books. The sister site to P’kaboo, which I also need to address. I will retake Honeymead along with P’kaboo.
I can’t believe Epub Bud is gone. But then again, it was a non-profit, and perhaps they have achieved what they wanted to. Seeing that the site was mostly for free books, I guess I do understand.
I must say their visual standard was high, as was their usefulness re conversion of ebooks.
Let’s give them a moment of respectful silence, and wish the proprietor all the best forward.
