Thread Name: New Penguin Book of English Folk Song
Subject: RE: New Penguin Book of English Folk Song
I bought the paper copy of the New Penguin Book but I have recently bought an eBook version of another song book and I came to the conclusion that publishers haven't really 'got it' when it comes to reference type eBooks. The book I bought had a complete song list with page numbers of the songs. There is only one problem, eBooks don't have page numbers and the location data is totally different. Contents pages and indices need to be hyperlinked to be any use and that's the problem. Publishers don't seem to be willing to do that, or have not recognised that you can't really browse eBooks in the same way you can browse paper books. A different approach is needed.
