Alcohol library question

Read a good book? Any topic is a good one. If it is about moonshine of other spirits, beer, or wine then that is a bonus.

Alcohol library question

Postby goinbroke2 » Fri Feb 14, 2014 12:01 pm

Might be a dumb question but how do I print off a book if I want to read it while laying in bed for example? Unless I print out each page seperately (holy crap not likely at 392pg's) I see it says if I want a hard copy I have to buy it, is that the only way?

What about the "become a member and sign it out for off site reading" Can I get a membership and d/l it?

Thanks

Personalized downloads for researchers is under construction. :)
But there will still be a [small] cover charge.
Much less than the retail prices seen.

Excellent, thanks Harry! Call me old fashion but I like to read off of paper, reading off a blackberry or whatever just sucks.

It'd have to cost more to print a book at home than it would to buy your average book wouldn't it? I know some of these books Harry has are hell expensive, but a normal reference book for $60-80 i mean.

Why would it cost so much to print at home??? Besides, I print at work! LOL!
I got the Compleat Distiller from somewhere a long time ago, read it a million times while winding down in bed before sleep.(and still do...) Wife's got a kindle and the kids got a blackberry, tried reading in bed with both and...nah, it sucks.

Sideload a PDF copy into a Nook reader and read it on your tablet in bed.

I like 8-track tapes! Digital recordings? - nah they suck. :roflmao:

I read a couple of books a week, on average. I buy them from Amazon and Barnes & Noble or download them from the library, on my iPad. Find a book I like, buy it, or check it out, download it, and be reading it in a couple of minutes. I particularly like the white print on black background for reading in bed at night.

The first hard copy I've read in over a year is The Craft of Gin by Aaron Knoll and David Smith that I bought at the ADI conference.

: followup...
I have agonized over the appropriate pricing of items. So I'm gonna take a different tack & let the members decide...by AUCTION!
Here's the 1st one. http://distillers.tastylime.net/shop/webauction/

Auction closes 2 weeks from today.

If this works ok, more will follow (items decided by popular request).

Slainte!
