Statistics may prove me wrong when wielded by one of our readers, but my impression is that reading of actual physical books has been on the decline for a long time now. The "tactile pleasure" of holding a book is great but it does not seem to have been enough to hold the formerly reading public. On the other hand I have noticed that people are much more willing to read a finished book with covers, etc., than they are to read a manuscript that contains exactly the same words. Go figure!
In any event, I have ensured that my two novels, "The Butcher's Cleaver," and "Death Piled Hard," (available next month) will be "kindlized" (Sony as well) from the start. The intelligence book "Intelligence: The Human Factor" is not my property andI can't fix that.
