I was going to buy this book on my Kindle, but decided not to buy it when I learned the Text to Speech was disabled. I like to read books and then finish them up on long weekend drives. I can't see why this author wants me to pay for the book twice. It won't happen. I just won't buy it at all. This isn't like ripping off a CD on Napster. If you pay for a Kindle Book, you have paid the author. There is a substantial difference. Publishing is changing and publishers need to change with the times or expire.
