This looks interesting. A mystery novel about a geocacher. The book is called Cached Out. It looks like it's only available electronicly, so you'll need a Kindle or a Kindle reader.
I haven't read the book yet (just downloaded the reader), but it is written by an active geocacher (and former FBI special agent, lawyer and cryptographer).

Downloaded the Kindle sample. Just read the first of six chapters. Not too bad and I'm not a book reader.

Sure would like to know the GC for that cache. Laughing

Hi, I'm the author. I just heard that the book got mentioned here. Thanks for the free publicity. I thought I'd log in here in case anyone has any questions for me. It is available by paperback, not just Kindle, but it is only available through Amazon or the paperback publisher, CreateSpace. Amazon has Kindle and paperback but CreateSpace has only the paperback. It a 6"x9" paperback - full-sized, not the small pocket type. It is not available in other ebook formats and not available from Barnes & Noble, at the library, etc. I had to restrict it in order to keep the price down for everybody. I do have a way to give a 10% discount for the paperback if you buy through CreateSpace, not Amazon. Contact me by email if you want the discount code. I only offer this to geocachers. You can reach me through my geocaching account (The Rat), or this forum may allow you to do it by pm, but the book has gotten mentioned in quite a few local forums now and I don't have the time to log into all of them regularly, so contact me by email. I probably won't see replies on this thread regularly.

Got the kindle format without discount, but at full price it is still cheap. Now I just need to hack my nook touch so I can read kindle books on it.

If anyone is interested, The Rat is real. 67 Image caches. That should keep CJ busy...

I think there's some kind of app that lets a person dowload kindle books on iPad. Isn't there a time limit once downloaded, though? Like, " this book will self destruct in 30 days" or something like that?

Check the Apple Store or wherever you get your Ipad apps from, T & B, and look for the Kindle app. I have the Kindle app for my Android phone as well as my lap top.

While it is not the same as reading from an actual kindle, it is still a good option if you don't have a kindle.

Hacked my Nook after work today. (It's pretty much a matter of following the directions these days.)

Now it can run as an android tablet but still as a plain nook. I installed the Kindle app and have confirmed I can read the book. A bit of effort to be able to read a Kindle book on it, but not bad to have a cheap low power consumption android tablet.

(And yes, cgeo works on it. Not ideal since it is in greyscale, and has no GPS... but it works.)
