Lawyers, Guns and Money

Estelle Tang, at "3000 Books", has bought herself an iPad as an all-format ebook reader.  She seems to be enjoying it. I have a number of Sherlock Holmes novels and collections on mine which I really need to get to.  A sample read of one chapter leads me to think the device is pretty good but I should read a full novel before making a final judgment.

Peter Carey lists Stephen Haff, a school-teacher in Brooklyn, as his hero for "The Guardian".

The British Cartoon Archive, out of the University of Kent in the UK, has a set of about 154 cartoons by Will Dyson, and over 800 by David Low.

Peter Corris explains the difference between "literary" and "popular" fiction over at "The Newtown Review of Books".

Parts of "Little Lon" are set to be demolished.  C.J. Dennis wrote about the area in his verse novel The Songs of a Sentimental Bloke, though I'm not sure he actually mentioned the VD Clinic.

Hi Perry -- I have just bought a Sherlock Holmes book for my iPad -- what a good idea. Will be interested to know how you go with a full book on your iPad.

I'll let you know. So far the first chapter is okay, but I'm hoping to get really stuck into them on a long plane trip to Vietnam in late June.
