Who Killed Dave? - Now an e-book

I created a digital online version some time ago - but wasn't that impressed with the quality. I've finally got around to creating an e-version with Amazon.

It's just come on line at Who Killed Dave? - Amazon and costs $11.99 AUS and $9.99 US.

I've yet to embrace e-books at home, but see it is a good way forward. Maybe a Kindle Christmas present Trev? How do you feel about paperless reading?

I attended a college that went paperless so all our academic essays and research reports and such were digital. The teachers would send back critiques on them and highlight and such. It was always hard for me to read. Now my husband is an English teacher and I love it from the teaching end of helping him correct papers.

There is just something with me about writing in the margins, holding the weight of the paper in my hand and watching the pages become worn. Maybe I'm just too old :)

I've got an iPad, and have lots of PDFs from all over the net downloaded onto it. I find it a very good way to read, and also to have a large variety of reading and reference material with me.

I have a Kindle and absolutely love it. Living in Scottsdale means I need to go into Launie to get the downloads through Whispernet as they only use the Vodaphone network here in Tassie.
But I have many collected works and I use Audio books too. This is great when I am tired or sick.
It is worth while spending the few dollars to buy for Kindle editions as they have usable indexes. If you get the free ones it is often one big file .
I use the adaptor to recharge through a power point as it is quicker than through the computer.
I enjoy having my mobile library. It means I can chose what I like to read when I wish without having a huge pile of books. I take it with me where ever I go now, it is part of me.
I am particularly a classics reader which means I can use it on a budget through the collected works. But most new titles are available it seems.
Buying from Aussie is slightly more.
I still buy paper books but sparingly as I have limited space and prefer to keep it clutter free. This way I have my cake and can eat it.
I think this is wonderful technology for the serious reader.

I generally only buy reference books/non-fiction, but can see a place for buying fiction, which I only read once anyway.

Whenever I go to someone's house I gravitate to their bookshelf (assuming they have one) and find out who they are. You might not be able to judge a book by its cover, but you can judge a person by their book choices.

What would I do if they have a Kindle sitting around, it's a bit personal to go snooping through to do a bit of pseudo psychological profiling?

I just went and had a look at my bookshelf to see what it says... hmmm...
