Yet again I'm having sleep issues, so last night I put off going to bed and trying to sleep by standing at the book case and looking over the titles. I spotted what had been my favorite book ever, The Weigher*, and took it to the computer to see if maybe there was an ebook version around. Sadly no.
So, I could read the physical one, right? I enjoy my ereader so much more, but for a reread of a book I loved, I could make an exception just once?
So I tried it. Oh my god, the type was so tiny! I could barely focus on the page! (And it was just normal book font, not especially tiny font used in big books.) What a sad discovery, I couldn't even get through a page before my eyes were hurting and watering.
I can read on the Kindle just fine, so I don't think it's a matter of needing reading glasses... Maybe if I stick with it I could just get used to it again? Though I guess I've been reading on ereaders for five years now, so I guess that's a lot of time for my eyes to go downhill.
* That cover image is AWFUL and not at all representative of the book. It was a book about intelligent cats. They could stand on their hind legs for short times, but were basically four-legged creatures, not werewolf-looking things!
Edit: And you know what's strange? Neither authors are around online. No facebook pages, personal sites, nothing. I wonder what happened to them? Did they die? Do they still write? The last thing I can find that Eric Vinicoff wrote was published in 1992, and I can't find anything published later than 1984 for Marcia Martin. I wonder what they do now? It's so odd when Google doesn't have an answer for something. Everything Martin wrote was co-authored with Vinicoff. I wonder if they were a couple? I wish I knew!
