Dear Professor Calvo, dear Ms. Peters,

Forgive me if this is not the right place for this request, but could you possibly effect that MIT Press publishes a Kindle version of your book "Positive Computing"?

The only existing eBook version is that offered directly by MIT Press, which cannot be read on any e-Ink based readers. I personally would love for this book to join the collection of Positive Psychology & Positive Computing books and articles on my Kindle, and I'm sure other potential readers / customers would feel similarly.

I am hoping to draw from your book for my bachelor thesis, for which so far I have almost all my literature (including annotations) in one place (my Kindle), synced with Mendeley. I'm sure that you can appreciate the advantages of an e-Ink reader (as an interface) for learning (less visual fatigue compared to LCDs, several advantages over print, such as full text search and portability).

Kind regards and many thanks for setting up this group - I have added many of the papers here to my bibliography.

Niclas Holtappels That is great news! I've already started reading it on my Kindle, and I'm excited for the chapters to come. Thank you for pushing this with your publisher. I'm happy if my request helped bring the release along a little faster.

Your book will be of great help for me as I am writing my bachelor thesis, and I hope it will only feed my curiosity abou...
