Another ebook that keeps bugging me that I have been waiting for is Infante's Inferno, by G. Cabrera Infante.

I was able to borrow a copy from Archive.org - the PDF and the epub. The epub (as usual with them) is mangled up with joined words and the usual conversion issues. The PDF, on the other hand, is a screaming yellow mixed with text and is not easily read on an ereader. And I hate reading it on my ancient iPad.

Like before, this is a book I actually own in hardback, but it's in a climate-controlled storage right now back in the USA, along with the rest of my book collection. I probably have 100 boxes of books (mostly hardcover) without proper identification on the boxes. So finding my copy (and being almost 70 years old now and dealing with a stroke 4.4 years ago is, at best, problematic - AND if I'm able to go back this Christmas to visit my two sisters).

By the way, I have an almost complete collection of Ballantine Adult Fantasy paperbacks - in mint condition - carefully packed away in those boxes.
