  1. looks really good – how do I read it if i’ve only got a humble laptop… (ludite, i know..)

  2. Thank you aleonardwilliams. 🙂 It’s really designed for tablets and e-readers, however there are some epub readers designed for Windows and OSX available online. Have a Google search and find which one is best for your OS. Hope that helps.

  3. just loaded it onto my laptop- via the kindle reader software thingy- looks like a good read, will take it camping this weekend!

  4. PDF version in the pipeline at all?
    I’m a windows ludite too……

  5. Sadly not rossi46. Ebooks, by nature are image-lite, therefore we select articles for ebooks which don’t rely on photography for a good read. Creating a PDF version is the same process as creating a magazine, which would look very dull without the photos.

    Thanks for the feedback though, it won’t go ignored.
