I just saw this at The Digital Reader and hadn't seen it announced anywhere else.

Here.

Diesel eBooks is Closing Shop
Diesel eBooks will be closing at the end of this month. It's been a great ride!  We're exploring our options - eBooks are still in the infant years and there are many opportunities opening up now and in the future. 
 
IMPORTANT: you must download your eBooks by month end. Downloads will not be possible on April 1st.  We want to thank you for being such loyal customers. Understand this doesn't necessarily mean you won't see Diesel in another form in the near future.

Looks like it's true. Here.

Of course, they may ultimately win their lawsuit and come back in another form, but don't count on them having your library still. Sounds like they're having server problems with the multiple email notices and no links to download purchased books. I've also see where they're no longer taking orders, and one complaint that a gift-card balance had disappeared.

Hope everyone is always backing up, and be careful with how many credits/rewards/gift card balances you keep at any one place. Don't leave more on-line than you are prepared to lose.
