How about read them and enjoy it?
Reading books on screen is a chore. Also, I never rearrange manuals or write comments in them, which makes such features completely useless.
I don't care about the changes in patches and updates, I just want to learn how to play the damned game.
Fine, fine, fer chrissake, don't get hostile about it. Do what you want. I haven't been talking about reading "books on screen."
I find it very useful to have control over organization, graphics, annotations, and even text. If I want information, I don't need a pic of C.S.S. Nirvana lying at anchor in Boston Harbor enforcing the great triumph over the hated Bluebellies.
And when you've learned how to play the game and the game has changed, then what? Rifle through a bunch of hard copy?
No, thanks. You keep to your Gutenbergian ways, fine with me. I have other ways of accessing information, and thought to express them here. The degree of defensiveness I have encountered tells me that I'd better just shut up.
Put my faith in the people
And the people let me down.
So, I turned the other way,
And I carry on anyhow.
