Hi Ben, I'm reading Rivers of London now on my Kindle. Loving it! Just discovered you last night and it's a pleasure.

Thank you. One more reason to stop worrying and love the Kindle...

Finally, books that can keep me engaged between Dresden books. And, from one of the best late-period Doctor Who writers, too. There's a nice synergy to that.

I'm about halfway through Rivers of London and loving every page. In fact, I already went out and nabbed the second book so I can start it as soon as I finish the first.

Thanks for entertaining me for all these years. Feel free to keep it up.
