The Poor Cousin

Found a book in the Amazon Kindle Book store that I wanted to have on my iPad, to get to read whenever, wherever I am.

A Cabinetmaker’s Notebook by James Krenov.

But, once again, it feels like Australia is the poor cousin of the USA, because we can’t buy the ebook down under – apparently it violates the copyright. Never mind that I can buy it in hardcopy.

Bloody annoying how hard it can be to get things down under sometimes. Whether it be an ebook, or the “LegUp”, or Forrest “Woodworker ][” saw blades or any number of other tools, machines etc. The world has gotten so much smaller with the Internet, and yet, this is often offset by small-minded people creating unnecessary restrictions.
