    I am always trying to learn more and be better at what I do. Naturally I look at martial books covering how to teach, train, etc. I came
    across this book by Jinenkan martial practitioner Adam Mitchell and have been reading it for a little bit now. So far it is very, very good!

    Here is a link to where you can buy it if you are interested:
    Amazon.com: Running A Dojo: A Commitment To Preserving Tradition eBook: Adam Mitchell: Kindle Store

    You know I don't have a kindle either. However, they have an app that you can download to your laptop and make it work just like a kindle.

    They have the Kindle Cloud option -- or a free Kindle app for your computer and others for your cell phones & tablets. I broke down and bought this one and another... got a third that's on the list. Now if I can only find an app to rip an epub or Adobe file from Kindle... :D

    I use Calibre for just that. I've even converted html files to book format for easier reading when I'm on the road. And it's so easy that even I can use it...;)

    Thanks Brian, great timing, I am looking at retirement from my current job in about 3 to 10 years (I can do it in 3 but I doubt the wife will allow it) and this IS part of what I want to do

    I don't do kindle either but Amazon use to offer the free app and I got a new laptop this past weekend and this looks like what I am going to do with it first

    A kindle is a tablet that allows you to read books sold through Amazon. However they have an app that pretty much turns any computer into a kindle.
