Book It

Yesterday I went on a small rant about how Kindle is slightly unfair with the way they sell their eBooks. The more I talked with people, the more I realized there is no need to pay $20 for something you can't physically have. It is for this reason I have decided to purchase the book in a physical version. Although it will cost me an extra couple of dollars, I have a physical copy of a book. Plus, the book itself is very big, so it is very hard to lose because of its size. In addition, I took time to consider when I would be using the book. This book is to be used when I am creating an application in Xcode, so I don't want to be reading the book on the computer while I am trying to work on it. I don't want to read it from my iPhone either, as that would go to sleep too often. Although it is a big book, I don't mind. I think jumping between the index and the chapters would be tedious on a computer compared to a physical copy. We will have to see how this works out. I am really hoping to follow through with this book.



  1. Why would your iPhone go to sleep to often? iBooks is made so it doesn't.

  2. That is because I am using the Amazon Kindle App. I don't believe that iBooks has big textbook size books for sale.
