    I just skimmed my copy of the book. It looks really nice and I'm looking forward to reading it. I really had to laugh when I noticed that the Enterprise-D on the inside of the cover is shown upside down. It's funny that this is still happening from time to time. I didn'd expect it in such a book though.

    Proofreading/editing is a dead art... Has been for some years now.

    There really isn't an up or down in space, though is there? :D

    Certainly seems like a weird error, though.

    Argh, why is "The Dark Veil" 0.5 cm higher than "The Last Best Hope"? That didn't happen before with any other books of seemingly same format. I wouldn't care if it would still fit in my bookshelf. But now I can't but both books next to eachother. ;)

    Get the eBooks. You won't have this problem. ;)

    Naa, that's not an option for me. I read eBooks when there is no alternative. But otherwise I'm all for real books - have to feel and smell them.

    eBooks are real books. They do have a feel to them which depends on what device you use to red them and as for the smell, I hope not or your device might be getting too hot.

    We are planning on going on vacation in the summer. So I can just bring my Reader and I won't have to bring a stack of pBooks. I find that a win-win.

    No more on ebooks vs paper books - there's a thread for that now.
