I get a real kick out of reading the sales blurbs for new books, and knowing that I can hop onto the iPad and find these brand-new-releases at Amazon.com, whence I can download them to the Kindle app and get reading RIGHT AWAY! Bliss, eh?
It would be blissful, aside from the fact that I live in Australia, not the US. Which ordinarily isn't something I dwell upon. Until I want to buy a new ebook. Lots (read, most) new eBooks aren't available to us here in Oz. I can order the print book and have it mailed, no worries. BUT I WANT IT NOW! :)
This blogpost from Jane at Dear Author went a long way to dousing my grump. Thank you Jane. There is hope, hopefully. I await the day I don't ever, ever require giving over headspace to something such as this.
Take care all, E x

Okay but what happens when the device is not working - or the battery runs low - or you are in the middle of the Great Sandy Desert and the red dust ruins it?ReplyDelete
I can wait!
