Anyone reading here regularly will know, if not be a bit sick, about WH Smith and Waterstones stopping me from buying eBooks. (For the uninitiated who have a life-time to waste start here then here, here, here and here.)
Basically. I love reading books and buy them. I also have a eBookReader which allows me not to lose my shoulder from carying a bag full of books when I go on visits or to work abroad. I used to buy eBooks from the above mentioned shops but in September they wrote to me telling me that for legal reasons I could no longer buy eBooks from them. (I am always suspicious of people who justify things they do by saying it is for legal reasons, I think they usually say that when there isn’t really any other reason.)
Anyway todays pictures are of a package that arrived for me today in the post. No prizes to the eagle-eyed ones amongst you who identify that it is a book. Yes, well done. I’m afraid no prizes for the even more eagle-eyed ones amongst you who notice its from Waterstones. Yes. I can buy a physical book and pay for it to be packaged and delivered to me here in France but I cannot buy an eBook sent by nasty electrons through wires. Bunch of useless Canutes. (wiki)
The title of this post comes from a Rolling Stone song. The most eagle-eyed of the lot of you will have noticed the book I bought is the autobiography of Keef. Enjoy.
