I know that I said that we would have a discussion about The Kid today but because of circumstances beyond my control, I am going to have to delay the bookclub. I waited until this weekend to buy the book because I read very quickly. I didn't think that it would be a problem because the book is available at the sony e-store. What I didn't realize is that the book is not available for purchase outside of the U.S. I then tried Diesel, another online bookstore to discover that once again the book was not available for purchase outside of the U.S. I have now ordered the book from betterwold books and as soon as it comes in, I will start the reading group. I cannot understand why I can purchase the paper copy but not the e-copy. I apologize for the inconvenience.
