Simply because it's not available in all countries, I check out Amazon and I can't get it. ;)

No Amazon for France? Hmm..

Barnes & Noble?


BTW, nice natural rock bonsai in your av. I've been finding a lot of those lately and just removing a few branches for aesthetic reasons then leaving them where they are. I transplanted one into a pot successfully, but only one because it's risky. I seem to be the only one around who likes to sharpen my bonsai skills in the woods, which is good because people make mistakes and need practice. It's quite an amazing art, actually.

There is Amazon.fr here but the book is not available in that particular page .. BN ships to France at very high costs but only for books bought through Alibris

It's all going Kindle and books on mobile phones! I have a few books on my mobile, but you can only read a 'text' portion at a time, which is annoying as your finger gets sore from scrolling down constantly. But... that's the future Mister Price.

By the way, everyone, Mark's book is worth a look in ! Grab a copy if you can.

They used to say that the future would be traveling through the air with "jet-packs". Can you imagine the convenience of jet-pack mountain climbing?

No thanks, I would rather feel the mountain and turn each page...in fact I chose the publisher based on the quality of their paper.

Yes, I agree that nothing can replace the feel of a real book, the smell of the pages, the feel of the paper between your fingers, the ocassional paper cut. I am not saying that books should be done away with, all I'm saying is that paper comes from trees and there is the conservationist viewpoint to consider. I love books and I know you do too.
