I got my new laptop yesterday, but I wasn’t happy with the font display. I turned on ClearType, but it wasn’t much better. So I did a search on Google, and found a ClearType Tuner provided by Microsoft to make your fonts look great. This is highly recommended, especially for reading ebooks on a PC [...]

After writing yesterday’s post I noticed on the Fictionwise site that Mushroom eBooks titles are marked “Printing Disabled”. I have made enquiries and will report back as soon as I get an answer. In the meantime, it seems that you are limited to eBookAd.com or Cyberread.com for printable PDFs.
We are often asked how to print an eBook. Well here is my attempt at an answer: You are normally only able to print a PDF file, assuming that printing is not disabled (see below).
