Re: KG 40 Combat History

Perhaps a Volume 2 then? I am sick and tired of looking at screens. Reading books should be a distinct, separate activity.

that equates to an additional 54 pages per book, so imagine what that does to my bottom line... downloadable version is a possibility though, I'll have to think about it.

Re: KG 40 Combat History

I'd rather buy a physical book. I am pausing downloading anything.

So would I, but for additional reference material (like a loss list) that I might want to refer to independently of reading the book, having something digital and searchable can be handy.

Re: KG 40 Combat History

I concurr. I prefer to read novels on paper, but fact books I definitely prefer in digital format due to search function. Also, such books like AB serial books I would definitely prefer in form of databases, where I can quickly find desired information.

PS Nick, have you got my email?

Hello Ed,
Have you ever tried an e-reader? It feels like a different activity than reading off your phone of tablet. It's not that 'digital' feel.
Plus, one can upload PDFs on there.

Re: KG 40 Combat History

Hello,


No, but I have worked in book publishing for a long time. Around the time the U.S. Postal Service made it impossible for foreign customers to buy books from us, so-called e-readers appeared everywhere. I recall reading that they were a popular gift in the UK, but sat unused in their boxes in most cases. I have no desire to own one.

I buy books from Germany and do not pay a lot of money to get them. I recall posts here from those in Europe that pointed out where to get the best price for postage depending on which country you lived in. So what has happened is a situation where people were forced out of the paper book market while immediately being offered an "alternative." They can keep it.


Best,
Ed
