Last week I purchased Comets and the Horns of Moses for my kindle - although I am still working my way through the Secret History.
I am finding that the kindle is not so great at allowing me to 'flip' back a few pages to double check on things that I have read, it would be great if it had visible page numbers. In any case I am currently reading through sections about the Egyptian Labyrinths, comparisons to older labyrinths and their patterns, and "Why Perceval?". Are there passages in this 'area' of the book that are repeated almost word for word? I can understand repetition for emphasis - but as the kindle does not lend itself well to flipping back a few (or more than a few rather) pages to confirm whether the repetition is an error in the kindle version or purposeful or my bad memory, I was wondering if someone could confirm this for me?
The 'repetitions' seem to be 'recaps' possibly, regarding the possibilities of ancient technologies being used to build these great structures from stone, and the relative lack of metal artifacts from these periods of history.
In hindsight I wish I had purchased physical copies of the books that I could bookmark! I don't know how long a kindle battery would last if for whatever reason we were to lose electricity; so much is being transcribed to electronic data these days, I'm not really sure what would be 'harder to lose'.
