IUP Offer E-Book Edition of Connected in Cairo
I like physical books. I like underlining significant passages, making check marks in the margins of things relevant to me, and writing margin notes linking ideas in this book to those in other books.
But I’d be lying if I denied that text-searchable electronic books and articles haven’t entirely changed the way I do scholarship from the now almost archaic forms of information gathering I engaged in during my doctoral dissertation. So I have to think that an electronic edition of Connected in Cairo is a good thing.
In addition to the Kindle edition I already referred to here, Indiana University Press has introduced an electronic version of the book. You can purchase perpetual access to the full text of Connected in Cairo for $20.95 if you want a nice, text-searchable electronic version. Or if you just prefer your library to be stored in the cloud, accessible whenever you have an internet connection.
Even if you don’t want to buy an electronic edition, you may want to visit this page because you can also download pdf files of the Cover, prefatory material (Table of Contents, Preface, Acknowledgments, and Notes on Translation), and the entire first chapter (which is more than you can get free on Google books!).
