Don't you have any of those free ones like Dug finds for us, Bouncy? :lol:

Actually, to be fair, I recently downloaded a short story from Project Gutenberg to my laptop Kindle. It was called 'Pigs is Pigs' and was free. It was also the story that inspired The Trouble With Tribbles, the classic Star Trek episode. I found out that Disney did an adaptation of the book too.

Pip - you might want to avoid watching this video. :lol:
