GB: Yes, we are watching. I think the show is amazing... very well done. The book is filling in some of the detail nicely. This one seems as close to the book (as far as I have read) as any adaptation I have seen.

PF: I got it on the Kindle. Who buys DTBs anymore?

I found it funny that Amazon has the books for $8.99 each or you could buy the set of 4 for $35.99. I understand with DTB you get a nice box and it all looks like a set, but on the Kindle? Bah. Want to charge me an extra $.03 to grab em all at once? Bah.

I love my DTB. They fill up my bookcases better than a kindle and don't need batteries.

No batteries on the Kindle, it comes with a rechargeable...I've had it for 6 months, plugged it in three times, so far. It goes with me everywhere, I use it at work (5 nursing books) as much as I read it at home. I am currently hauling a library of 27 books with me everywhere I go.

My work bag is much lighter these days.

I resisted buying one for a long time. It wouldn't be worth it for me if I couldn't include my nursing and drug books. And I still have stacks of books all over that need to be read.

I just finished David Baldacci's Absolute Power and started The Deeds of the Disturber an Amelia Peabody mystery by Elizabeth Peters. I've been considering a Kindle. I'm waiting for it to come down some in price to the $100 range. When they came out with the $114 I was about to jump on it until I realized it had ads on it. Figure I get hit with enough of those on TV, newspapers, junk mail and magazines. Don't want it with my books!
