I’m pleased to announce that the Kindle edition of Real Thirst is now available for download!
I put quite a bit of extra attention into this electronic edition — formatting, figuring out some obscure technical details — and I hope you’ll agree that it makes the experience of reading the poems of Real Thirst on your Kindle a much more satisfying experience than with the typical ebook.
I know that we are an international community and many of you have not been able to purchase a copy of the printed book yet. While the book is available through Amazon’s North American and European sites, it is still not easily available to our many readers in India, Pakistan, and other parts of Asia. (Real Thirst is now on Flipkart.com, but it is listed as “out of stock” — I hope to change that soon.)
But this electronic Kindle version is easily downloaded from anywhere in the world.
And you don’t need to own a Kindle device to read the Kindle edition of Real Thirst. You can download free Kindle Reader software for your computer or smart phone. Once you have the necessary software installed, you can quickly and easily purchase and download the Kindle edition of Real Thirst from anywhere.
I hope this makes Real Thirst more easily available to everyone who has not yet been able to purchase a copy.
I should also mention that the iBook version will be coming soon, as well.
