A lot of people are getting used to and
love e-books, but
there are also the people
that they want the "book format" to bring to their trip.
You may also feel that you don't
to read on the screen. Understandable - I don't
only read so much on the screen - as soon as the reading is too long or
I have to concentrate, I
feel I have to print it out on the paper.
Another reason you may have is that printing
if you have an ink printer. If you have a laser printer you
problems (and they have also gone cheaper - I bought a
laser printer from Officeworks for $75 recently (March 2014), and
black and white are even cheaper).
But even if you have an ink printer - you
don't have to print out the whole book! There are plenty
pages you can save yourself - background,
general information, and
many others that are fun to read, but
are not directly necessary for your planning, and don't require much
(easier to read on the screen).
Print only the pages that
you use for
your planning in
more detail, and
the ones you want to
bring to your
trip. You can even pick and choose
page if you like
(even amongst the destination pages leave out tours for example if
you're not going to take one). And you still have the rest of the
information left on your screen, in case you have to look something up.
(As I always say - this book is best used BOTH on the paper and
on the screen). Now
why am I 'telling
you' to do all this just to buy an e-book??? Because it's worth it!
You go and buy a "book format" travel guide - you NEVER get the details like in
e-book. Reason why?
Normal books cost
the author a lot of money to get reprinted. The
info is left much more generalised because then there is no need for an
update too soon.
With this e-book I work
update the information all the time. Things like prices for the year and events for
the year for
update as soon as they get out (once they are all out - not one
by one, it would be confusing for
you). It is the detailed

be able to know exactly what land you are on,
what are the camping rules in each spot (and these change if not
you need any permits, and
when and where to get them - all contact details included.

MUCH more important than
format" for a Cape York trip!
If you print the whole book, get
folder to put it in. If
you print pages,
still do get a folder so it will be neat.
Good news - no
holding a book above your head - just one page at the time :-)
Worth getting a folder that is easy to open to get a page out when you
