I have a hilarious little joke I want to share with you. One of the free ebooks that popped up in the Kindle Store yesterday is a little odd. No, it's not a crossover between unrelated genres (but you probably guessed that from the title).
The ebook in question appears to be a mistake. It's about 8MB in size, and the entire contents, so far as I can tell, are naughts. Yes, this ebook contains 8MB worth of zeros.
I'm sure it was activated by accident, but who cares? I consider myself lucky to be able to hear this excellent prose spoken to me by my Kindle. The section right around location 1252 brings tears to my eyes. I seriously think this could be the winner of next year's Man Booker prize.
Even if it isn't this is still a captivating book. I wonder if Amazon have sold the movie rights yet?
