Great idea grant , I just wish that our local B&N would actually carry such
things , they really are a bad thing for us small towns as they come in and kill
all the small ma and pa bookshops that would have been more than happy to help
me , whereas when I went to B&N ( big nothing is what that must stand for ) the
fellow didn't even know what "radio electronics " ( "you mean cellphones ?" were
his words) was , letalone where to find it :^P , after some checking we decided
that they didn't carry any electronic books of any kind !

I for one wish B&N would have stayed east of the missus-pippie , but you still
have a good idea Grant, I just wish I could do that , another idea is to donate
one to your local library as they are not getting as much funding any more
because some people think libraries are a socialist idea and should be closed (
we got some crazy folks in our neck of the woods ) so that is usually what I do
is donate books to my local library .....

anyway my two cents plus a little personal axe grinding ;^}
