    Thanks for the warning, Bob. I do re-read books so I need to look to the future.

    Re: Hey Bookworm, What Are You READING?

    Read Little Brother a novel by Cory Doctorow, It was released on April 23, 2007.
    Scary how it seems so close to todays news

    Little Brother is about four teenagers in San Francisco who, in the aftermath of a terrorist attack on the San Francisco – Oakland Bay Bridge and BART system, defend themselves against the Department of Homeland Security's attacks on the Bill of Rights. The novel is available for free on the author's website under a Creative Commons license

    Re: Hey Bookworm, What Are You READING?

    So I have jumped in the E-book Format with both feet because the tools are finally there to do it the way I want at last.
    The Tool is Calibre and with it and a plug in called DeDRM Tool set up you can import all your books to the library and remove the DRM from them. Then share them "DRM free at last" to whatever device you want.



    Took me about 2 hours to get it all setup right, You need to have the DRM removal tool working before you import any books as it removes the DRM on import.
    But I now truly own downloaded DRM free copys of all the books I had bought from Amazon Google books etc.

    So I just read NATION the one book by Terry Pratchett I had not read.
    Not a Diskworld at all.
    One of the many others

    Priceless.

    Re: Hey Bookworm, What Are You READING?

    I'm slowly struggling thru an unabridged, annotated version of Phantom of the Opera. Because of the annotation, it throws me off in some places. Like, "Wait, who did what? That was fast. But... whaa? Why do I feel I missed something?" /puts down book
