I tried to upload my story to Critique Club - tried pdf and doc and both files were unacceptable.

What sort of files can be uploaded?

That kind of thing can be set in the Admin Panel. I think the default is just image files... but .doc and .pdf (as well as other slike .xls) can be set as acceptable.

I haven't actually done it though, but I've seen the setting.

Is the 256kb size a hard and fast rule, or something that can be adjusted? Because... that seems rather small to me.

I agree, the ebook I have for the book club is 272kb and it is a very small book...

2 or 5 MB, I think.... what size are the largest e-books? I'm asking like the 1000-plus-page books like in the Sword of Truth series...

Looking at Amazon, a 1000-page book is around 1.6 MB... so 2MB should cover most books.

A Dance With Dragons comes in at 4 MB (5 MB in mobi) but I can't see us reading a book that size for book club.
I would assume that any uploads would be temporary in Critique or book club so MBb should be more than enough. Maybe make it one upload per post to balance out.
