All those books look & sound awesome X 10 !!!!

I'd really love to read The Gaia Wars and In Leah's Wake. One of these days I'll get an e-reader, nook, kindle etc ... SOMETHING so I can enjoy all the wonderful books published in e-formats. Right now it's not very comfortable for me to have to read them in PDF on the ol' desktop pc ;P

Good luck & Hope you win a nice prize!! :D
