Launched my husband's online memoir today: http://amemoirproject.com/
I still have a lot of work to do making this compatible with various devices and older browsers, but if we didn't hit this deadline we may never have launched.
We'll be publishing a new chapter every two weeks, so please subscribe for updates! If you see anything that seems broken, please feel free to let me know.

I really like this, it's the first time I feel like I'm reading a real book online. Nice work.
Thanks very much, Hubert! Means a lot.
Lovely execution Brandon. I like everything, especially seeing the H&F-J fonts online! The Table Of Content sidebar is really nice one. Wish more programmers did front-end this good.
Love the work you've done here... type + layout + all the subtle interactions & transitions. So well done.
Thanks so much, Trent!
@Trent Walton - Would love to get your thoughts on ways to make long-form writing for the web a friendlier experience. I've done everything I can on this site to make it as easy to read as possible, and responsive to different devices. However, getting visitors to read a long chapter online is difficult, to say the least. It helps if they move it to a reading tool like Readability or Instapaper (and I added tags to hopefully make them parse cleanly). What else can be done?
Some interesting data: http://cloud.smallparade.com/MOiM
I have some JS in place that tracks scroll depth on long pages. You'll see that only 12% of my visitors scrolled all the way to the bottom. Obviously there is a margin of error here, but that's a pretty low number.
If interested I started a Branch thread about this: http://branch.com/b/long-form-writing-for-the-web
