Pradeep glad you are joining in from Sri Lanka. Have you gotten that Kindle or IPad yet? (smile)

No Pradeep but being able to get books instantly through the air waves is very in with the iPad and the Kindle; and if you Travel with the weight restrictions the way they are the cost of going over that weight outweighs the advantages of the real books - I can easily do without the smell facility. (smile)

I love books too but unfortunately they do not travel well these days.
