After some serious consideration I finally decided to buy a Kindle instead of an iPad.
Because all I wanted was something to read on, I didn't need all the other functions that come with the iPad (I've got three Macs in my home already).
And you know what - I like the Kindle! I bought the big one, the Kindle DX because I did not want to be squinting at a little screen, so I am very happy with the almost 6 x 9 inch screen (about the size of a paperback).
The other thing that is great about the Kindle is that connection to the Amazon Kindle store is included in the one time price. If I had an iPad I would have to buy a wireless telephone contract with monthly payments.
And ... drum roll ... I have just managed to convert The Singing Stones into Kindle format, so now you can purchase Dolores' first fiction novel for half the price of the paperback. And you can get it now without any shipping costs in North America or the UK.
Converting into Kindle means making an html file of the book so that it can text wrap and allow the formatting to be somewhat fluid. It takes away from the over all look of the book but the substance is there and I have a hunch that this will improve over time as more people start using the Kindle or something like it.
