09:12 pm - There may be something called 'writing *too* well'
I think I mentioned somewhere (that I can't find now) that I am Libraryless. Gave my unsigned copy to staff's geek daughter at the end of January and never got it back because then staff wanted to read it herself, and says she *will* remember to bring it in but will also have to buy another copy because geek daughter needs to have one of her own. Sometime later (memory is shot) my aunt commandeered my presentation copy for her granddaughter to read, swearing I'd have it back as soon as she was finished. But E declared the book so excellent her mother had to read it, and sent it off to her where she lives, two hours from Toronto. E also said the book had inspired her to go back to reading fantasy, which she'd gone off of, but having read The Invisible Library she's determined to find something just as good.

Just thought you might want to know, G.

(And now aunt is wondering how one listens to an e-book. The ones she has are on disc.)

All I can say is that I am extremely flattered and cheered. Thank you. ;)

Audio version is due to come out on the 14th, which I believe is Tuesday. Can I offer you a copy? (They give me the codes for a few free ones.) I believe one downloads it from amazon, though like your aunt I have never actually tried.

Thank you- that's a very kind offer. But I'm assuming it's a digital download rather than a CD? Do you know what sort of devices it plays on- what the system requirements are, as it were? My aunt doesn't even have a computer, but it's possible someone in the family has a tablet they could lend her.

Yes, it's a digital download. It looks as if one can download an app onto a tablet that one can play it from - http://www.audible.com/mt/Apps/ref=a_pd_Sci-Fi_f3_1?ie=UTF8&pf_rd_r=1ZCKEHMWE28E1SJZJBQQ&pf_rd_m=A2ZO8JX97D5MN9&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_i=detail-page&pf_rd_p=1828072142&pf_rd_s=footer-3 - which might do the job.

Have emailed cousin to inquire as to feasibility of all this technology and will get back to you. Again, much thanks.

Cousin says that alas, aunt can't even manage to change a radio station on her own. She listens to talking books on CD which my cousin sets up for her every week, so aunt only has to press the play and stop buttons. But thank you for the offer anyway.

Ah well, no worries, and I'm sorry it doesn't seem to be available as a CD, just as a download.
