Here's an early Christmas present for all the Kindle users on this list (or at
any rate, for all those of you who have asked Santa for a Kindle, something to
try on Christmas morning).
Eric Ferguson has kindl(e?)y consented to my preparing an edition of his
massive dance crib collection for the Kindle. This could help people who don't
have Internet access where they teach and so can't get at the SCD database,
and it goes well with the electronic editions of the RSCDS Manual that the
Society publishes on its web site. I have put a first stab at this up on
You will have to download this onto your PC and move it across to the Kindle
via the USB connection (or at any rate this is what I seem to have to do with
mine). (And before you ask, no, I can't put this up on the Amazon Kindle Store
because Amazon won't let me give stuff away for free – and charging a dollar
for Eric's work just to make Jeff Bezos happy doesn't ring true to me.)
Feel free to check this out and to suggest improvements – in particular for
the navigation, which sucks on a non-touchscreen Kindle. I will eventually
make an EPUB version, too (which will go even better with the EPUB Manual).
Have fun, and merry Christmas!
