To date you have been adding new ebooks to the stock, but are you thinking in update the old ones presents in the chesspub site?


Yes, eventually, but it makes sense do new ones before updating old ones.

OK, so far there are over 50 playable eBooks, with 13 new style, and more being added every week! Cheesy

Thanks!

The current advertising on the home page and rather frequent updates will stimulate the downloading of the new Playable eBooks, I am sure.
  

What kind of proof is that?

I just downloaded the new Yugoslav eBook but the cover says it was last updated in 2006.

It is the Classical that is new. Wink

I just downloaded the new Yugoslav eBook but the cover says it was last updated in 2006.  I did a quick search of games in the 9. 0-0-0 d5 line and can't find any games newer than '06, was the right file attached or I am seeing things?

hi Tony,
.pdf files are more often downloaded because:
- they are updated. once i noticed that most .cbv ebooks were from 2006-2007 (some even 2004) i never wasted time to visit the "Playable ebooks" section;
- they can be used not only with several operating systems, but also on several devices; i read most of my .pdfs on my pda...
However, .cbv files are more usefull for most players. as someone from above posts said, if you really want to study a particular variation, sooner or later you will put all the moves in a chessbase database. and the new format is much nicer then the old one.
About a greater feedback for .cbv files: just put a poll in the first page.
About Gold Plus: only usefull feature is "One stop games download", hardly an incentive for subscribers to upgrade to Gold status. Access to a section of often updated playable ebooks will be a better incentove maybe. the .cbv may not be upgraded monthly, quarterly upgrades should be enough.
and last but not the least, I would like to thank you for "The Dynamic English", best white repertoire book that I ever read! when I read it first time, I was sorry that it had only 130 pages instead of 500 pages..

If we can get a couple, let's get brand new ones, rather than updates of ones that already exist.  

Examples:  ... 1..e5 English.

It's done! Wink


And its excellent!  Thanks, Tony.

It is possible to download the light version of ChessBase for free. It gives the option to read the eBooks if you would like to compare.

I have only tried a couple of times, but yes, the free CB 2007 seems to handle the eBooks quite well. Wink

I don't have ChessBase, which is why I don't do the playable e-books.

Compared to the two new updated playable eBooks as well?

Yep, they are even way behind many of the other playable eBooks, but I only have statistics for the whole month, and they have been online for less than two weeks. In a couple of weeks I will have more meaningful results.
