    Tough luck on those folks who love to stick their noses deep in between the pages of a new/old book and smell it (I have a friend who does that - I kid you not). Turning pages and hearing the paper tear a little when done too hastily. Seeing the books line up on the shelves... If only Gutenberg had known.

    Well, at least you don't know me.
    Actually I own something between 2 and 3,000 books, fiction, non-fiction, a small amount of audio books. The problem is I'm running out of space. I have three wall shelves (over the complete walls), also three cupboards and the box of my old PC full of books I don't want to give away. And the possibility is more about to buy more books then to give books away.
    Plus, I tried several time to order directly from Fandy but - don't know why - never got what I've ordered. So I have to buy via amazon - but some of the novels never were listed there so I have to buy them from expensive sellers. For example: "Death Game" wasn't avaiable via amazon. I tried to order it directly but again the process failed. Finally I ordered the novel via an importer and had to pay 25 Euros. When you look at the price for the kindle-edition of "Death Game" ... that one only costs around 4 - 6 Euros. I'm not a millionair, sorry, I will pay for the cheaper offer.
    BTW, who told you it isn't in Gutenbergs mind to read via a ebook-reader? When I remember right his intention to develop book printing was to make it easier for everyone to read books. An ebook-reader is also a way to read books and it is easy.

    But I agree with you. There is no better smell as the smell of a book. And you know what? When I open a book for the first time I always put my nose deep inside of it and inhale. And it's always wonderful!

    Perhaps build book-walls... wouldn't that be like an extra wall to keep the warmth inside the house.

    For now I would be more than glad if the warmth would go away ... It's terrible hot here, more than 20°C today.

    2000 - 3000 Books? I envy you right now! I have a collection of around 580. Mostly fiction books, but I'm running out of space - tiny apartment just doesn't cut it. I like having the option to buy some of the stargate book via ebook as well - especially the out of print ones. I just wish they used a more universal format, not exclusively Kindle. I have a Kobo and it doesn't support Kindle format, so I'm stuck reading them on the computer. I also agree with having the physical book over ebook is much better.

    In any event, I'm awaiting when the next Legacy series book (and the rest) come out. The Lost left us off in a big cliffhanger - a multi-month long cliffhanger at that. End of November? I think I can do that.

    I feel the same way! I've got a Kobo and almost all the books are now on kindle. I've just been to the stargate novels website and Allegiance is available to buy but not yet on any E-reader. I got all the books in paper back but I would really like to have them on my kobo so I can free up some room in my flat and not worry in a few years the books may get damaged by my pet rabbit.

    I broke down and bought the Kindle for PC version. Couldn't wait for it to be available in print and it takes to long when I order it direct from the publisher.

    I can't get a Kindle or anything like that. It's just not the same experience. I've ordered the print copy and I canne wait for it to get here.

    I got the Kindle for PC and ordered the e-book of Allegiance, couldn't wait till it came out in hard copy, have just finished reading, thoroughly enjoyable. Can't wait for the next book now. Kindle for PC is very easy to use, and very convenient, and I will always have a backup copy of the book, plus I don't have to find somewhere to store it. Though it was a little different from actually reading a hard copy, but hey I like to read Fan fiction, so it wasn't that much different.

    My thumbs up for Allegiance, bring on the next book.

    It's very easy to use, I just don't like reading a book on the computer. But if you want instant gratification and don't have a kindle ereader its the way to go (I believe ipads have a kindle app, so you can read on them as well)

    Does anyone know when it will be available on the Nook or some other form of ebook? I have a Nook plus have gift cards attached as well as the first two books on it and want to keep them on the same e-reader. I had hoped it would be listed today as this was the original release date but don't see it.

    It's supposed to be out on Barnes & Noble as soon as they get it up on their website.

    I was just recently given a Nook because my Sony eReader quit working. It's been fun finding stuff at Barnes & Noble to read, and I discovered the SG1/SGA books there. I've downloaded Stargate: Sunrise (takes place after Beneath the Surface), and SG1/SGA: Homecoming. I'm going to space out getting more since it will likely take me awhile to read these two. I'm looking forward to it.

    I really enjoyed Sunrise. Subtext of course, but some fine Jack/Sam!

    So far I'm enjoying "Sunrise". However, unless I'm completely clueless there really isn't all that much Jack/Sam - other than moments when they are in the midst of the current mission/situation, and an errant memory of their experience in Beneath the Surface pops up to distract them. I'm about halfway through at the moment.

    And I'm finding Daniel extremely annoying. I sometimes get the impression (in this book and in episodes of the series) that it would be fine with him if he died trying to help others, and it would be just as fine if his teammates died right along with him in the process. And his naivete(?) is mindboggling at times.

    Well, they're stuck with MGM's ban on shippyness, so.... *sigh* *is Jack/Sam shipper*

    Homecoming has quite a bit of Jack but not too much Sam, but Jack has a reasonable amount to do. The Lost has a good deal of Sam, as does the new one, Allegiance. Sam with the George Hammond and a really spectacular scene that's so Sam!
