Dean Wesley Smith, and by direct word-of-mouth by Jeff Ambrose (and a brief Twitter exchange with Lawrence Block his own self.) So I wandered over to Wikipedia, in which I read: "Block's other major series, humorous and much lighter in tone, relates the misadventures of gentleman burglar Bernie Rhodenbarr. The series is rich in sophisticated, witty dialogue." So I went to the author's website, and it said I didn't have to read them in order, so I chose #3 (since I figured the character would have 'ripened' by then). Over to Amazon...
I bought and read the eBook "The Burglar Who Liked To Quote Kipling". In that it was 'rich in sophisticated, witty dialogue' and of a desirable length for my busy schedule, I liked it, so I proceeded to purchase the other nine.
As of this writing, I have read the first two as well. Nice.
So, to recap: I bought 10 eBooks via word-of-mouth --> Twitter --> blurb --> website --> awesome. (Oh, and note that these were $6.99. Since it was somewhere between $2.99 and $9.99, the price point was really not a consideration in the process.)
How do you buy eBooks?
