I'm delisting the switching.social handbook at the end of next week (Sunday 9th June), so if you want to buy a copy now is your final chance:

kobo.com/ebook/the-switching-s

p.s. The book is DRM-free, so if you buy it you can keep it forever.

@electret

No big reason, just many different small reasons that have accumulated over the past few months.

For example, one concern is if an alternative goes bad, the book is still out there on people's ereaders continuing to recommend it.

@switchingsocial that make sense. Do you plan to have other ways to support your work?

@electret

Thanks, deeply appreciated :blobsmile:

There are no plans at the moment, but I will let you know if things change.

@switchingsocial
I just bought it. What about publishing a new version each x times. Everything moves fast, so updates with new books could make sense?
@electret

@fedilab

Thank you for buying! :blobcheer:

That's an interesting idea, I'll consider it 👍

@to1ne

Nope, it's a DRM-free ePub file, you can use it on any software or hardware you want.

It's not tied to anything.

@switchingsocial where do I find the download link? I was hoping it would be emailed to me. The thing is, I forgot my password and password reset does not work, so now I’m stuck. Not your fault tho. Still looking forward to read it. I’ll get it fixed.

If anyone else has problems getting the book, please message me :blobsmile:

@to1ne
I thought it was just me! I couldn't log in so I reset my password and now I'm locked out! This was before I got a chance to buy it though...
@switchingsocial

@dheadshot @to1ne

Weird... well, I guess this is yet another reason to delist!

I'm sorry to hear this has happened to you too.

Thank you for trying 👍

@dheadshot

Yes, it's mostly stuff that isn't on the site, general articles about privacy that are maybe too long for a website.

@switchingsocial @dheadshot Do you plan on releasing that extra content on the site or as a free pdf/some other method?

@jordan31 @dheadshot

I tried to make the book complement the website rather than replace it. If you just want alternatives, they are all listed on the site.

The book is mostly just going into more depth about why particular kinds of alternatives are a good idea.

I don't know if it suits the website format, because the articles are quite long. I'm guessing most people would prefer a summary, which is already what the website is.

@switchingsocial

I just purchased your book.

Thanks for writing it! 😃

@switchingsocial Any chance of a physical publication (as a fundraising stunt)?

@yosl

I did look at it originally but the economics don't really work for a short physical book :(
