SO

can you get a book for Kindle if you don't have a kindle?

Translation: what kind of file the download is anyway? Will it open somewhere else? Or only in Kindle? BECAUSE I DON'T HAVE ONE BUT I WANT THIS BOOK AND IT WILL TAKE, LIKE, AGES TO COME TO ME BECAUSE USA HAS ALL THE FUN

The thing is, the next Temeraire book is coming out tomorrow, and this one is set... not in Brazil because the author BETRAYED ME, but in South America. Probably in Peru.

So







And I need to have it, but even if I order it now it will take four weeks to get here, and I won't, because the thing is 50 reais (that's 28 dollars). The cheaper version (paperback? idek) is 20 reais (11 dollars). So yeah.

BUT I WANT THIS BOOK

/tantrum


Even if it could end up being a total mess. The way things are now, the kingdom of Tswana is attacking Rio de Janeiro, trying to save the people kidnapped to be slaves. The Portuguese Royal family is under siege, Portugal wants England's help, England can't because, you know, war, they have it, so our heroes will try to... go to the Incan Empire to get help? I don't know.

All I know is that, if it turns out Brazil is just the background for a war between Tswana and Portugal, I'll sulk for months. Or if this whole thing has no effect on OUR history because the book is more worried about everyone else. Or if Lawrence decides to be his vaguely racist self (don't look at me like that, he WAS. The only time he didn't make me cringe was when he went to Tswana, because they were so badass that he could be EEEW THIS IS NOT ENGLAND all he wanted. But in China and Turkey he was... weird). Or if it turns out we don't have dragons, just those dumb sea serpents. Or if it's one of those traveling books. I DON'T KNOW

GAAAH I WANT TO READ IT
