The great thing about the rise of Ebooks is it offers accessibility to a lot of books and authors, specifically pulp authors of the early and mid 20th century, that would otherwise due to scarcity and exorbitant prices remain both unknown and unavailable to the mass of readers.
Now I love traditional books, it’s my preferred way of reading books. That said, for some books, specifically the vintage paperback with faded pages, a digital version, where you can adjust font size and brightness to your leisure… can be a boon.
On the PC I recommend Calibre. It’s a software ereader for your laptop that works great. For the tablet I recommend using Alkido Ebook reader. Both are pretty fantastic.

Getting back on topic, here is today’s must read Ebook.
Whip Hand by W. Franklin Sanders/Charles Willeford (Gold Medal, 1961)- Well obviously no one is going to mistake a book with such a salacious cover for War and Peace, however that said this novel, credited to Franklin W. Saunders was actually ghost written by the acclaimed cult writer Charles Willeford, and the first chapter… surprisingly great. I just blew through it. If the other chapters are that solid, this is going to be a good read.
I think the first chapter may hook you as well.
