    Congrats to all involved in its production.One question, though: Should it not also be available to buy as a digital download? It'd be great if people opt for the hard copy, but nowadays we have to take into account that a lot of people read books on kindles, computers and smartphones.Why not look into making this available in all the usual formats – pdf/epub/mobi – and maybe selling it as a download via paypal for, say, four quid. (Have the price of the hard copy + postage.)I would say the same for all the recent pamphlets that have been produced or reprinted.

    A few more "do we":Do we have the resources?Do we have the capacity?Do we have the will?Do we have members willing and able to inform the non-savvy rest of us what your suggestions *actually* involve and cost? Do we do we do we do we doooo?

    The actual cost would be minimal. If put in place it would actually reduce the workload at Head Office because people would be purchasing the electronic version of the book online directly from the website. No need to pack it up and mail it out. How do we go about it? I'm in the same boat as you.

    Has anyone else noticed there's never any shortage of suggestions from those least able, for whatever reason, to bring into practice those self-same suggestions?
