That doesn't look like it's been updated in a while. Her tumblr is here: and it's pretty busy, but she posts some great stuff. It looks like all the discount announcements show up under the ebooks tag ( but there's no way to be sure of that.

I agree, it is a lot easier to share paper books. That is something I dislike a lot about ebooks - I have a couple of friends who I share books with a lot, also I started using paperbackswap, and none of that works with ebooks. On the other hand, I like having a hundred books at my fingertips without having to lug a couple of suitcases around with me. I definitely found the advantage of that when I had to take an unexpected trip a couple of years ago. So, I do see the advantages of ebooks in some situations. I just can't imagine giving up my paper books (or paying the same for ebooks as for paper).
I haven't gotten that far - nor do I have particular insight into autism - so I couldn't comment on that. But it's good to hear that there may be improvement! I remember hearing some unhappy comments about that in the past.

If you keep an eye on her blog or tumblr, she often has sales ("we need money" or "it's a holiday" or "we're donating to a thing" or "we feel like it") and discounts stuff anywhere from 25-50%. Also, if you know anyone else who's interested in the books, they come with a "can be downloaded 10 times" link, so you can (legally) share them. Just some more info it occurred to me might be useful to you :)
I've read the original edition of High Wizardry probably a dozen times at least, and I probably will again, since I kind of prefer paper books over ebooks. I love them all.

As to whether it's worth it to depends, I guess. If you want ebooks, then sure. If you're a completist like me (I'm trying to collect all of DD's books), then certainly. If you want to share the books with someone who will be put off by the anachronisms of the originals, then definitely. But I don't think they're so much better that you absolutely MUST get them.

I hope that helps?
Wat goed opgemerkt! Ik had het zelf helemaal niet door! Wel van de leesclub, dat was een of twee weken terug 2 jaar. Maar deze had ik helemaal over het hoofd gezien...
