So, http://zaregoto.ftp.sh/ died, someone minds kindly sharing the epub/not PDF version of the first novel of Zaregoto? PDFs are Satan's format
Also, I guess ebooks general/epub exchange whatever.

Little bump

What's wrong with pdf?
>>
I prefer PDF over epub for light novels
>>
>>101195012
I work with ebook PDFs everyday, you want manga in epub if you're going to use a reader like a kindle, the auto resizing is a fucking god send.
>>
>>101195012
The first Zaregoto volume is made from scans to pdf, so you have actually two pages in one, and it's impossible to read on a ebook reader.
Also, the pdf formatting fucks the converter when you go from pdf to another format.
>>
>>101195710
Basically, you have to read something like this
>>
>>101195012
Basically, it's shit and shouldn't be used for anything other than some company documents.
>>
>>101195781

Did you intentionally cut the file size in half to exaggerate your point or did you find it this way?
>>
Why can't people upload ebooks in epub? It was made to read books, unlike fucking PDF which was made for a bunch of things, but certainly not for reading books.
>>
>>101199055
No, it was just a screencap I did about the size of the screen of an ebook reader screen, even if it's not really precise
>>
Anyone wants the Another novels?

If it's text, PDF doesn't retain the format, it just has the characters and their position, so reflowing the text when you change screen size or font size is impossible, some readers do a good job trying to guess which paragraph goes where but any kind of complex layout gets completely lost.

EPUB is basically HTML inside a zip. Paragraphs stay together.
>>
>>101199541
Sure!
>>
Excuse me, where can I read Zaregoto Volume 3?
>>
>>101199541
Just a sec.
>>
Holy shit, tried to search a physical version of the first volume of Zaregoto and it costs a kidney
>>
>>101195710
You can dump it to individual images, then use kcc to make an epub out of it. It will even split the double pages and put them in the right order if you check "manga mode".

PDF was made as a lighter alternative to postscript - for printing. It's really shit for text that needs to be reflowed, repaged, etc. It's basically a vector image format, not a text document.

But it's easier to author than epub, so I guess that's why you see so many pdf releases. And if it's a bunch of scanned book pages where there is no text information to begin with, there's no sense not to put them in a PDF.

PDF is poorly supported on most portable ebook readers.
Because only a savage would read books on a computer screen.

Good god, you're right.
>Book 1: $190
>Book 2: $9
Why is this allowed?

It's out of print. So, they put whatever price they want. I bought mine, new, for less than 30$. I did it because I knew how things would end. And now a friend of mine has lost it...

It will come back down eventually. The same thing happened to the Slayer's novels for a while (2011?). Two years on, novels 7 & 8 can now be found for $15, down from like $150.

>>101200941
