Hello Angela, 

I have installed Kindle (with help from Anne!) and am ready and waiting! 
In the meantime I have read the 'taster' on Amazon, and my apetite has been whetted!!

Can't wait for the rest to follow..... :)

That is great,
I am so excited about all this.
Anne, you are a wonder at these technical things. Quite a few people have said they don't have a kindle including my son. A few tips on here about how to download the kindle reader into a computer would be good. Anybody?
Meantime I have all my fingers and toes crossed that people read and like the book.
lots o luv
Angela

This is the link I used Angela,  there is a different one for Apple users,  but if you go to Amazon, they give you easy peasy instructions... even I can do it!

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/kindle/pc/download

Hope that is all correct Anne... I can't find the bit of our conversation where you told me what to do,  but if I have got it wrong, feel free to correct me.

I'm gerring quite excited about this new book although I have to admit that my preference is always hard copy! I don't know if I said this before, but I love my Pirelli Calendar!

I think its available for free on Amazon now and for the next three days. Would somebody be able to check that its working OK, by going and getting a free copy. Just search for London Lampworkers and it will turn up.
Many many thanks
Angela

Yes, it's free and available. I have downloaded it and had a quick browse through. All seems to be in order and as it should be Angela! Lots of interesting information too! I love the sketch of the Pirelli lampworkers room with details of the holes in the floor and fire escape! Many thanks for this Angela!

Downloaded and read with great pleasure Angela.  :)
I love your writing style, and it has made up fully for being unable to go to the Glass Fair tomorrow.

Hurry hurry with the next book... and keep us all informed when it is ready.

Handy Hints:
1. get and install the free app before you try and get the book, it makes things easier!
2. if you have a black and white Kindle device you can still download the app to your PC as then you can see the images in colour!
3. if you're in a country with its own Amazon site which I've not listed above, simply search for B00BHRQS9W in the site you use and it'll appear for you on your local Amazon site.

Thank you so much Anne, for preparing all that information.
I think the information about downloading the Kindle should be put into a general sticky notice at the top of the books section, as I'm sure it will be generally useful to people.

Meantime my book is still available for free until Tuesday morning UK time, or midnight Monday in the US. I do hope that anyone who is interested in Pirelli or Bimini or Komaromy will get a copy. I'm also hoping for some good feedback on Amazon. Thank you to Al for the feedback that is there now.
