Whether you shun the world of electronic publishing (eBooks) or embrace it and them, you have to admit it's a medium that seems here to stay.
And beginning July 4 and running for a month, you can download more than three-and-a-half million e-books, for free, at the World eBook Fair.
In a spy novel I had just read, the hero hid a letter in a particular statue in the Washington, DC area. Since I was in the city at the time, I decided, on a whim, to visit the statue and see if it really did contain the small niche the author had described.
