What I have done is download a free e-book reader from: http://www.adobe.com/solutions/ebook/digital-editions/download.html I have windows, so boldly I downloaded the Macintosh version, and after about two hours dealing with that kind of fugue state a mind can enter into when discussing delicate matters with a technical device, I realized I should have downloaded the Windows version of the e-reader. Delighted to see it came with a detailed instruction manual which on the scale of comprehension was right up there near four out of ten.
I then Googled Halibut's End Story. One of the links took
me to a rather sinister picture of what was obviously the bloom of Amorphophallus.
To read a sample of the book, I clicked on the yellow button that said
"epub." And I chose to save the file. Oddly enough when the file was
downloaded, and I clicked on it to see what it contained the e-book reader
came alive. It's actually quite fun looking for spelling mistakes
and hunting down semi-colons. The Artist is certainly enjoying herself. And
I'm told by Smashwords that I can make corrections.
