Ahh, well if it helps, I tend to buy physical copies of almost every book I enjoy too. There's nothing quite like a real book. But then, there's nothing quite like the convenience of a Kindle!

As for Dodger, I'm about half way through so far and I'm really quite enjoying it.

I took a look at the price for Kindle last night, and decided against. Not at £8.50, and especially now that I read that it's quite a short book.

He was on BBC Breakfast this morning at around 9 o'clock. I just caught the end and missed it. :(
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

It's 350 pages, Bouncy.

That's not short.

I didn't get a cartoon with my Amazon order, but I did get the book £1.50 cheaper than the original preorder price. :D

And Sainsbury's had the totally invisible copies :? In there around lunchtime and the lady who does the book shelves was there...er doing the book shelves so I asked her about Dodger. She consulted her list, found 4 copies but said they would be in the large boxes out the back. I unexpectedly met a friend and was introduced to her new baby so it was a good 20 minutes before i made it back to the book section. Dodger was not only invisible on the shelf but also could not be seen in any of the delivery boxes.

I went to Tesco and they had lots :D

Yes thanks Dug. The cards were firmly attached inside the cover and they're excellent. I won't say who they are to avoid spoilers.
Funny thing.....my last post came up here 3 times :o then my broadband went all Hallowe'en :shock:
All a bit odd i must say :?

I'm already into the story....very enjoyable :D
