I'm glad to hear that my 'informed guesses' were correct and happy that my suggested solution turned out to be successful for you!

Thank you for that! I guess I'll have to do that will any new books I buy from now on ....is it November 27th yet?

So I am up to book eleven. Did read small favors this week, and the short storys in side stories. Look out for Turn coat.
Don't like Murphy much. I think, I have a problem with her attitude. How she is around Dresden and other people, maybe she is too mortal and cop for my taste.

I felt vaguely offended and inclined to defend Murphy based on this comment--now that's a sign of good characterization

As did I.

Ditto to more Bigfoot cases.

I've just finished re-reading Changes and then after that the novella, Aftermath. Aftermath is a bridge between Changes and Ghost Story It is the last story in Side Jobs. These re-reads were quite exciting and I've thoroughly enjoyed re-reading them. So now I've just started my re-read of Ghost Story which I'm looking forward to a lot!

Also I've now read the fist two chapters of Cold Days.

I finished re-reading Ghost Story yesterday, which completes my preparation for the release of Cold Days.

I haven't read the new bigfoot stories. I keep meaning to check for the anthologies at my library but forget about them when the time comes!

Reminds my of this comic Strip.
And I can understand you, that ending wasn't very satisfying.
And it gets even worse once you now how it came to that.

I agree, I was not expecting that at all! I'm so glad I read Ghost Story and will definitely read it again when I re-read the series....for the 4th time

Anyone else's Kindle version have really small text? I've never had a book with such small text before. Even stranger is that since I updated my Kindle the text became really black and now it's kind of grey.
I've noticed that some ePub use small as the base font size. And given that most AZW3 files are originally ePub, any issues like small as the font size will be carried over. This is why I go through the ePub on the computer first and fix anything that needs fixing.

So, I am now on Changes. I like for the moment Turn Coat best. It was a great read. I have a love all the time Harry comes home and find a suprise. This was very great.
It is sad, only two books and Cold Days.

How are the fury of Calderon series? Anyone read them?

I started with Death Masks a little bit ago, but have to catch up on this thread a bit more - made it to page 26/80 last night. If I am caught up I will post some thoughts about Harry.

I wasn't sure what to look for so I just stripped the DRM and converted to MOBI as per Alan's suggestion...and it worked like a charm
