    Lightbulb E-book vs. physical copy

    I purchased Leah Day's 365 FREE MOTION QULITING DESIGNS,

    as an e-book and it was the wrong decision for me. Spent most of the night feeding the lame printer more paper and more ink cartridges to get the 252 pages. I would have been money ahead to have ordered the physical copy and saved the ink and paper.

    Information is wonderful but just a heads up to those of you that have lame printers.

    When I am getting something with just a few pages I like the E-book. Thank you for the information on these large books.

    I would do something like that - but fortunately I've only purchased books to read for my kindle. I don't even want a magazine subscription on the kindle - I need the actual page when making a quilt.

    I love the kindle books, but not a quilting book on it. I tried it and the e-book had a chart for the measurements, I could not read it. Kindle doesnt have a print option, so it was a waste of money.
