You're welcome. I figured you might like to have a hard copy since it's a favorite of yours.

Should we break off an e-book forum as previously suggested? It looks like there are plenty of us with e-book devices, and those who want to just comment on what they're reading are getting lost. I could talk Kindle, etc, all day long, but don't think it's fair to others. Admins?

Well, IMHO, it just strayed a little OT, like so many threads do.
If it was a reading forum I'd say break it off, but how many book forums does a food forum need?
Me getting a Kindle added a little pizzaz to an eight word per post (on average) thread

You, sir, are correct. But I would love to keep the e-book stuff coming.

Oh yeah. I guess this is just a thread in OT anyway. My bad. I thought it was it's own forum

Yes, it's a neat little unit. Too bad you can't mark a book as "read" though. I can't imagine purchasing a reference book and always getting taken to the last page I was on, when really I'd like it to open at the beginning, or table of contents. They say they are working on that, as there is a lot of requests for it. Maybe PF can weigh in on this. I remember her saying she has some medical reference books on hers.

I now, automatically hit search when I am using my reference books. it took me awhile to get used to it and I went through quite a few 4-letter words to get it to do what I wanted. I would love a tab system.
