It’s so convenient to buy books with one click. I have loved that feature for years.
But then, I just recently bought Napoleon: A Life and was in for a surprise: First, the Kindle edition was more expensive than the paperback version. Ok – I am used to that now.
But I didn’t realize it until I started reading: This book is HUGE.
This is the folly of the 1-click-buy: If I had realized that this is a book with almost a thousand pages of small print, or 24,000 Kindle locations, I would probably have passed on it. It’ll take me weeks to go through that.
And now back to reading. I am at 25% already….
