Important news for customers of ebook retailer BooksOnBoard:

They have halted sales of ebooks and encourage customers to download their ebook purchases as a priority.

This article in Publishers Weekly provides more details as to why BooksOnBoard have stopped trading.

This is a shame because I had purchased ebooks from them from time to time as they’ve had some great bargains. I just had no troubles logging in to check my account with them. There were no titles in my library I had not downloaded, and luckily I had used up my rewards points last time I made a purchase. Will be interesting to see if they can find the investors required to come back from this setback.
