        I hope other major publishers will remove DRM from their ebooks. I’m delighted that Tor did this experiment and I’ve enjoyed it. 🙂

          Thank you, Kimba! That’s high praise! I have a feeling I’ll be looking at a new e-reader one of these days, although so far, my venerable Sony PRS-505 is still going strong. Slow, but it works.
