Mistake in Death Masks

I found a mistake in the last part of Death Masks that made me stop in my tracks. If you have not read it, you might not want to open it. I have not read past it, so try not to spoil my end of the story.

Spoiler:
In the duel, when the vampires attack, Harry puts up a defensive shield. He complains that It was difficult to do without my shield bracelet to focus it. But then eventually his shield fails and: My shield collapsed, overloaded, and the bracelet began burning my wrist. Did I miss something? The only other bracelet are the defence beads of Ortega.

Anybody care to explain? Or was it a proof-reading mistake?

Ahh thank you. For a second I thought I go insane.


Edit: thank you for not spoiling the end of the story

I just bought the first four books in hard copy a day before I broke down and bought a Kobo Arc. I have a great love for books and resisted buying an e-reader thinking it might be the end of my expanding my library but the convenience of it won in the end. I have read all the forum rules pertaining to copyright etc. but still feel a bit confused as to what is allowed here concerning uploading, sharing, etc. Would someone mind taking the time to help me clarify as I really don't think we should have to buy the same book twice no matter what form it comes in but don't want to get banned for not understanding the rules here completely. I live in Canada, thank god, and some new copyright laws have been enacted that helps add to my confusion.

Thanks in advance,
Ken

No, as long as its being done to add information, or as a followup, and not just to be repetitive.

Alan's link should already tell you anything there is to know, especially this:
Quote:
This means that we will not allow posting of instructions showing someone how to break the law, requests for such instructions, nor uploads or links to items that have the sole purpose of breaking the law.

EBooks uploaded to this site must be legally uploaded under Canadian law, as the server is hosted in Canada.
Which means the only books that can be found here are either Public Domain, released under Creative Commons licenses that explicitly allow sharing or are uploaded either by the author/copyright holder themselves or with their permission.

Also whether we agree with "I really don't think we should have to buy the same book twice no matter what form it comes in" (which I kind of do by the way) we are not allowed to discuss any ways of obtaining copyrighted material that are not legal under Canadian law. Which as far as I know means we could only advice you to either scan (and ocr and proofread) the books yourself or send them to some company (like 1dollarscan) to do that for you should you want to read them on your reader without buying them again.

The legal way is always the best. You can scan, borrow from the library in may cases etc.

Asking for /taking the same book twice because you want it in ebook format is the same as asking for a free paperback when you bought a hard cover because it is lighter and easier to carry.

Or asking for a laptop because you already owned the desktop version, and/or going to a store/restaurant and asking for french fries because you had already bought a potato.

Maybe life should work like that, but generally it doesn't.

Cool Ghost Story monologue

Quoted from youtube.com

Quote:



Uploaded by Priscilla Spencer on Nov 27, 2011

A snippet from Jim Butcher's "Ghost Story," done in monologue form for an application. Once the one-minute required monologue was recorded, I turned around and recorded the full scene I wanted to depict, albeit cutting and tweaking a few lines to make the monologue treatment smoother. I am as hopeless an overachiever as I am a nerd.

Sounds like the show "Supernatural" where there is always something new within the genre of supernatural entities of course.

I hope I get an Amazon or Kobo gift card this christmas, then I can get it. I just can't spend that kind of money. I hope you all enjoy it though
