Hurah! Bought ‘Power and Majesty’ from Kindle before finishing listening to the episode. I really loved ‘Love and Romanpunk’ and was VERY frustrated I couldn’t try more! (I’m in Canada.)
Don’t ask me when I’m going to read P&M, my too-read pile is very electronically tall though I’ve only had an e-reader since Christmas… Sigh, I guess a large too-read pile is the sign of a mind still hungry for new pleasures and challenges so I guess I’ll just look at it as a positive thing!
