Hi,

being an avid rereader of Sir Terry's output, I have bought a Kindle from amazon and am slowly working my way through, as my paperbacks are now rather dogeared.

Does anyone else hear know why Witches Abroad hasnt been released in Kindle Form.

Regards

Nick

If it couldn't read punctuaution it'd be a bit of a bugger - just one long sentence from start to finish and no paragraphs. :D

Oh that, yes, that would be quite easy to decipher and indeed mark. May run out of red ink but easy none the less. I was thinking of an essay I was once given that went for two A4 pages that was hand written and contained NO punctuation whatsover, or paragraphs. Not one fullstop! :shock:

I now have written in my classroom TP's quote 'Sooner or later you have to put your bum on the seat and allow punctuation into your life'. They really don't know who TP is but it's all part of a well rounded education.
