Yep. She's on her own now. Takes good care of her apartment.

My daughter says she just likes the "feel" of a book in her hands. I'm like you, I like that I can carry several books with me — and download more from the store or the library "on the run."

Actually I can't remember having ever read them. So thanks for the tip. No paper books for me, I'm afraid. I'll just change the covers in Calibre.
Yep. That's the series. And (like an idiot) it never occurred to me that I could change the cover to the old one. I may not even like the series any more — I think it was what they would classify as "young adult" now (although I don't there was such a classification back in the 80s).

EDIT: Just looked on Amazon. Some delusional soul is trying to sell the same series of paperbacks I just bought for $608 plus $4 shipping? I paid $3.95 per book (which included shipping) but the seller gave one free for each two you bought, so the total price was $7.90. Maybe I'll go on Amazon and sell for them for "half" price.
