Bad Attitude Guide: great review and now on Kindle

The Bad Attitude Guide to Good Citizenship just got the kind of review authors dream about.

Thank you, Frank DuBois! And thank JF and the good people at Paladin for pointing that out while I was keeping my mouth shut last week.

I must also note that this is probably the first time I’ve ever been mentioned (favorably, at least) by a former Secretary of Anything. He’s got a good blog, too. Very prolific and worth checking out, especially for Westerners and people interested in the kind of land/water/leave-me-alone issues so prominent in the West.

Also: The Bad Attitude Guide is now available on Kindle at half the price of the print edition. Yay!!!

It joins several of my other titles, including at least one otherwise out-of-print book. Thank you, good Paladin people!

    Groovy? Psychedelic!

    Thank you. Added you to the blogroll here, also. Mine’s not as pretty as yours, though.

    Obviously your publisher does not have a deal with Apple. Every other kindle book version spiked upward in price a bit back.

    Though it does look like the dead tree is now at $16, down from a double sawbuck I saw yesterday.

    I can’t keep up with all the price changes! But I’m all for lower prices. They may mean lower royalties per book, but if more books sell, I’m happy.

    I can’t see the point of charging high prices for Kindle or other e-editions. Without the cost of printing physical books, it just doesn’t seem justified.

    But that’s why publishers and booksellers don’t let us mere authors anywhere near pricing decisions. If I ever self-pub a book (and that’s a big IF because I don’t know whether I’ll ever write another book), I’ll set the price LOW.

    I’d hesitate to pay 75% of the price of a physical copy, but amazon chose the iPod security model, where there’s just enough DRM to prevent them from selling only one copy, but not enough DRM that would prevent a tech savvy person from cracking and separately archiving the book. I do this because I’m not going to re-buy the same books for my next e-reader. Even if my next e-reader isn’t from Amazon. VCR-> beta-> DVD-> Blu-ray = no way!

    I bought the Kindle mostly to be able to read the digital media I already have , and that’s been a bit of a disappointment. Yea, PDFs are viewable, but just barely on the device. So those CDs I own of back issues of BWH are going to need some conversion somehow first before I can carry the lot of them around inside my kindle. For those who understand “grep” though, how cool would a regex full text search of your entire library be?
