Welcome ShortStacked.

I assume your thoughts on this drivel mirror the thoughts of the rest of us on this forum? :mrgreen:
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

I don't know. Discworld on ebooks :shock: thats nearly as bad.
Found it hilarious that someone tried to say this rubbish has outsold Harry Potter . Shame people don't read the entire story . Its paper backs sold faster over a certain number of weeks than Harry potter had. It reminded me of when a mate of mine tried to say Madness were a bigger band than the Beatles :roll:

If by that you mean do I think it's not fit to be toilet paper, then yes. :-D

Well played! I admit, I got the ebooks because it's much easier to bring the nook to work than it is a paperback ( the nook case holds up better to squishing in my bag, lol ), and I have limited space in my itty-bitty house to hold books. :(
