I know what you mean, but my only alternative (until I get off my arse and order a new reading lamp) is to have the main light on, which is not ideal if you start nodding off - you have to get out of bed to turn off the light, and then you're wide awake again!!

I just saw this article on another site. :shock:

So you think paying for your book on Amazon means it's yours? :naughty:

Not that I like e-books or an am Amazon devotee, but that story--one of those "I got it from a friend" things--begs for Snopesism.

Here's that story plus some background in The Guardian. :)


And let's not forget the way Amazon deleted Orwell books from people's Kindles a few years ago.

Her account has now mysteriously been reinstated.

Amazing what an internet's worth of bad publicity can make a company do!
