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.

There's a PDF copy floating around on the Usenet somewhere, only 5000 pages of lite reading :shock:

How is it cheaper in Australia? Is the USD failing against Aussie wampum or something?

It's dearer for the pdf version than the printed version mud and they are selling it in US$. If you consider we're getting about 84 cents for our dollar when we send one overseas from the banks or paypal etc it looks even worse. Closer to 8 grand than 6 and a half.

Paid almost 200 for a whisky book a few months ago and that was WAY over my budget. Only one chance to get a hardcopy though, and I had to jump on it.

Still barely gotten into the Kister series. I figure if I ever get locked in the slammer for ten years, I can bring those books and my banjo, and will never run out of stuff to discover....

US e-book version is proprietary vst format (see here...) .

Many ebooks are dearer than their paper counterparts.


EDIT: Mebbe I should open a download outlet instead of the Library. :?

I was looking at my phone, which was blurry. You'd think a device that talks to satellites would have a better pic viewer. No matter how you cut it that is one spendy bit of reading.

An acquaintance owned a silver/lead mine of which during smelting there was a gold by-product captured.
Not really turning lead into gold but getting pretty close for a snake medicine man to make it into a good story.


Cheers.
