Thanks, Mike. It's a shame that I don't have a kindle.

I have a Barnes and Noble Nook Colour and I have to be honest and say, that I am a Digital Immigrant. The Nook is great if you want a book asap, but I love having the actual book in my hands, I love having a book shelf filled with books. It is great that Nooks are saving trees, but having grown up actually turning the pages of a book makes the transition to electronic reading a hard one. I read The Green Mile and others on the nook, and it was not the same.

Having said that, books that are available on kindle are sometimes unavailable on the B&N Nook.

It will be out in paperback toward the end of the year.

Congrats Mike.

I have to say I agree with you Loretto. E-readers will never replace real books. However where they come into their own is going on holiday or away in general. They are FANTASTIC for just nslipping into your baq and yet can carry hundreds of titles.

I have an andrid tablet, with e-reader apps, including Kindle, on it. I chose to buy it rather than an e-reader because of all the extra things you can use it for.

I don't use it at home (or rarely), prefering to read actual books. Zak and I have hundreds of books, hardback and paperback, fiction and non-[fiction. Last year I had a 'cull' of over 200 paperbacks, most of which I had had before we married 40 years ago! It was a wrench, but it had to be done, and now I want to have a go at some of the hardbacks. I gave the paoperbacks to the village fete; don't know how many were sold as we were away at the time of the fete and I don't want to ask in case no-one bought any! However at this year's fete I bought half a dozen repolacements!! Oh dear!

Ditto and double ditto. I use a screen when I need to, there is nothing like a real book.

Save a tree; cut a job instead.

I think this is a similar thing.

Years ago I saw Lego computer games, and was appalled!! Maybe it's just me, but surely the whole point about Lego, and other building toys, is that you hold the pieces in your hand and build with them?!

I love computers and computer games but I could never see the sense in that one!

:D

[Sorry Mike, I have gone off the subject by a mile!!]

LOL Anne. I will keep people up to date about when the paper copy will be out. It is set for Nook as well now.
