Trying to get my ebook off am*zon as well as sites that require users to have an account by having the ebook files on my website for one-click download. Do you personally think it's too risky from a security standpoint to save a free ".epub" or ".mobi" from an author's site?

@data right now I do not

but if I downloaded an .epub titled something like "how to protect your cybersecurity" from a personal website and opened up a seemingly 121kb file that just said "🤦‍♀️ oh my god, you complete rube!" maybe I would reconsider :P

@data I prefer to get books directly from the author when possible. Cory Doctorow, CJ Cherryh, and Judith Tarr spring to mind as examples.
