Piggybacking on this question from another Luddite who's in the same boat as Carol - is there any way to purchase and read the Penric stories on your laptop without buying from Amazon? If that's the only way, I'll do it, but I don't approve of Amazon's business practices and labour policies and when I can buy my books from elsewhere I prefer to.
