I have a kindle. It is very useful. I rarely use it in the home; only when I'm holidaying, visiting family, and long boring car journeys.
I love CS Forester and his Hornblower books. Recently I bought a thriller by him 'Payment Deferred' a proper paper book published in 1926. And I'd recommend it. Good sometimes to read the oldies rather than think everything has got to be the latest pop piece of fiction. On that point I hear Dan Brown is having a new novel out in May. God help us.
Back to CS Forester. After reading 'Payment Deferred' I looked at what else he'd written beyond the Hornblower series. I was thrilled to read that a collection of Hornblower short stories was published in 2011. These stories had only ever been found in magazines before. I immediately went straight onto Amazon to purchase myself a copy. Not in book paper form only as an e book. I don't want it like that. I want the book, a real book to stand proudly, as an admiral might, by my other Hornblower books.
