Interesting, Starr! I have Amazon Prime so i could read this for free if I have a Kindle. But it looks so good that I'll probably order the paperback version. Thanks so much!

You can download it to your PC.
Click on the Free Kindles/eBooks/etc thread for the free application.
It is in the beginning of the thread.
Let me know if you need help.

Thanks, Glory! I checked it out and I think that even *I* can do it.

But I like to be able to hold a book when reading. I like touching the paper, dog-earing the corners and turning pages the old-fashioned way.

So do I, my friend. But I do love my Kindle! Daughter gave me a great present when she got that for me. The more I use it the better I like it. But it'll never truly replace the "real" books. And you can't write notes in a Kindle.

I don't know Starr, the more I post all those free books on the KINDLE thread, the more I really want one.

I downloaded about 15 free books the other day. Things I've always wanted, espc the classics. I'm really excited about having those. It's one of the reasons I'm not online as much as before. I even have 2 word games on Kindle that I play, and I'm not one for games. But these are like the old game, make new words out of these letters, etc. Lord knows I need to exercise my brain...it's getting old & feeble. haha.

Ahhh, but you can "write" notes in a Kindle.

I can't tell you how easy or good it is -- I don't add notes to my books, whether on paper or on the Kindle -- but I wanted to let you know that it *is* possible on the Kindle.

Thanks, D and J, but what I mean is, I don't get the satisfaction of writing something on paper. It's just not the same. Thanks for the info, though!
