Fri, 21 Apr 2017 19:46:36 GMTI just stumbled over this: http://readwell.penguinrandomhouse.com/ If you read samples of books, Penguin will donate books to Save the children. I've read a few of the shorter samples and found one book I'll probably buy -- which of course is what Penguin wants, but hey, if I can discover tempting books and help a good cause at the same time, I'm not objecting :) Note: It only lasts until the 23rd, so don't wait too long if you want to do a good deed by reading.

It is now the majority source (51%) of recorded music revenue, even counting CDs and other physical products; * The vinyl renaissance is hitting its limits, as growth has slowed and vinyl looks headed for a new peak of 6% of total industry revenue. ... the RIAA numbers make it official: encrypted digital music accounts for more revenue than DRM-free music (digital or analog). In other words if you define DRM as any encrypted means of content delivery DRM for music is back ... now only 30% of digital music comes from DRM-free sources while 70% is encrypted in some way ---End Quote---

If it has web-browsing capabilities like the DPT-S1 + more than a gig or RAM + available in an English-language version, then I'll probably get one.
