    Interesting conversation last night with a friend who said that since he’d bought a Kindle he had not finished reading a single book. Not one. His idea was that it had shortened his attention span. I wonder if this is a common reaction. Just curious. I don’t own one, you see.

      I tend to switch between books a lot, true, but I’ve finished far more books for pleasure (as opposed to the ones I’m paid to read) since I’ve had a Kindle. Of course, infinity plus singles are perfect for those with a shorter attention span 😉

    Well, I’ll pass him your details, obviously!

    Great – bought Lisa Tutle one.
    Currently read your Infinities sampler, by the way – some great stories so far. I think you’re going to be ending up with some more of my £s off the back of it….!
