I downloaded this one a couple of days ago (after seeing it in your sig on a different thread).

I have added this to my current list of books to read so I should get round to it fairly soon.

Thank you

i love that the "similar downloads" for this story features "living history" by reyben and "dead pigeons" by moejoe sam luka.


(and yes, moejoe is definitely a brilliant man. )

Mobileread users download books from Mobileread authors, which is why the algorithm identify them as similar.

Crud... got carried away blathering on... very very sorry if it did. Not sure that it actually will be a spoiler for RRH, but sure woulda been for DEAD(ish).

Well... I do have an iRex iLiad and an iRex DR1000 so it's possible. The problem is the screen size. I have way more text on the DR than on the iLiad so I'll have to change pages more on one. Also, I don't think they're the same length. Hmm....
