Glad of my Kindle

I loved Linda Gillard's Star Gazing. Now she has a new book out, House of Silence but here's the rub: it's only available as an e-book. I got this heads-up from the Cornflower blog, where Linda says this is due to 'the intransigence of publishers.' Are they nuts? Star Gazing was so well received, you'd think they'd be glad to publish more of her books. I've downloaded this and started reading it in bed last night. So far, so loving it.

By the way, it's a miracle if you can read this as Live Journal seems almost permanently down at the moment and I'm having difficulty posting, hence my grumpy mood.
