 In what format will you be reading "Good Thinking?"
The Publisher of "Good Thinking" has offered us 10 free copies of the book. All 10 copies have already been offered to members. Check your email or private messages to see if you were one of the 10 offered a book.

In the future Prometheus will probably offer similar bundles of free books when we're making one of their publications an official BookTalk.org book. So if you're active in our book discussions you can expect to benefit from this arrangement.

My brilliant wife suggested I ask if you guys would prefer an eBooks copy over a print copy. I never even thought of that. So that's the goal here in this poll. Would you prefer to read "Good Thinking" and other Prometheus titles in print or eBook?

I just sent an email to Prometheus to see if they can send eBooks as easily as print copies. But please take this poll and add any comments you might have.

The publisher said they cannot send eBooks so print will have to do.

Robert, I sent you a PM about a free book. Did you get the PM?

I've decided to read this on the Kindle. For purposes of a discussion, the Kindle makes it easy to quote passages from the book without having to type them out.

By the way, it looks like this book isn't available as a hardcover.

Because it's digital! Wow I'm an idiot. I never thought of this before. Maybe I'll use my wife's kindle just for book discussion books.

Bob, you are being sent one. I'm waiting on them from the publisher. As soon as I get them I'll ship yours and everyone else's out.

As I told Chris, I can't reliably get a copy. I am using Kindle, but it seems to be unavailable until Oct. 8.

Hi Interbane,

Yeah, you can highlight passages while you're reading and access those highlighted passages with your computer on the Kindle web site.
