Torsten Posted February 5, 2014 Report Share Posted February 5, 2014 In case you haven't read my profile page, I'm twenty-one and a college senior. Time for me is very precious, and in spite of all that I learned in several levels of Physics, I can tell you that time does indeed shrink and contract. Occassionally at alarming rates! When I'm using my laptop it is nearly always for college course work, and there is relatively little time to just sit back and enjoy a story. I hate to rush through an author's work, especially some of the work I've found here at AwesomeDude. I know how much effort goes into writing the material and it seems almost an insult to the author to not savor and appreciate his labor. There are odd periods during the academic day when I'm not in classes or at the athletic center and when cranking up the laptop and finding a WiFi connection is difficult. Unfortunately, the more isolated and private places on campus tend not to have WiFi in range, and since reading these amazing works is guaranteed to get me hard and leaking, isolation and privacy are sort of required. But I take my Nook tablet everywhere I take my laptop... So, I wonder what the AD's rules are for a person privately downloading stories and novels, converting them into epub format and then storing them on a Nook? Never to be shared, never to have a hard copy printed out, never to be read by any person other than myself. Would this be acceptable? Does the Dude know of any authors who might object to this? What are the author's opinions? I know I could have done this and no one would ever know but somehow that felt like stealing. Deep inside me there is still an Episcopalian chorister and acolyte. Deep. But he's still there. Quote Link to comment
