Pre-Eric Discussion

Technically speaking, this isn't a pre-Eric discussion any more.
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

I'm so impressed with Kindle that I'm going to buy one tomorrow, then not be able to read the books I want to read, so order them in paper format from Amazon and throw the Kindle away. :lol:

You really should be a salesperson Bouncy. :lol:

It seems to be the only one of Terry's that isn't available. Perhaps because of the illustration element?

You can't get illustrations on kindle? :shock:

Anyway, it's available without illustrations. 8)

To derail the thread yet again, I'm really annoyed with ereaders at the moment. I wanted to get one for Mr Dotsie, but they're either too expensive (Sony), they don't support the overdrive software that the library uses (Kindle, Cybook), or I can't bloody find it anywhere (Kobo) :evil:

He's getting a sticker book instead. More fun. I'm sure he'll be chuffed.

I know it is. I've never see the illustrated one.

I may have to drop the fragrant Lindsay a line. She got mentioned in despatches in the front of Christopher Fowler's latest Bryant & May book.

Illustrious company that girl keeps!!

He's not keen on tablets, he just wants something not too expensive with e-ink, like Kobo would do if I could just find one :roll: I dunno, he's a bit picky with his tech, if it was a tablet it would have to be an iPad2. If I got him something untested by him that would be a no-no.

Thanks for the tip tho :)
