"The Mayfly Guide" by Al Caucci

Post by letumgo » Mon Aug 03, 2020 10:02 am

I've had this book on my Amazon wishlist for several years, waiting for the price to come down on a used copy. Unfortunately, there must be a healthy demand for the out of print book. Check out the prices on used copies of this book. $798.98 dollars?! Good grief! :o :? :roll:

Out of curriosity, I did a quick search on Apple's iPad bookstore and found that they had the book for only 13 bucks (a steal compared to the print versions). I immediately bought the digital edition and have enjoyed studying the book on my iPad.

Anyway, I just wanted to let people know that sometimes digital versions can be a cheaper way to get hold of out-of-print books. I would still much rather have a physical copy of books (paper is more permanent), but will make due with digital books when needed.

Have you guys purchased many digital books?

I can't do it, I just can't. It has taken me years to get over not having a Boston Sunday Globe in my hands on Sunday. I'm still struggling with newsprint withdrawal to this day. The Bangor Daily is but a shadow of its former self and its online 'paper' is a royal pain in the arse. I can't even begin to imagine the damage to my already fragile psyche should I succumb and buy a Kindle.

I want paper, I want ink, I want typography, I want a stamp on the inside front cover that reads 'Used Library Copy'...

Mike - My heart is in the same place, but my wallet lead me astray. For now, all I can afford are electrons (digital edition).
