Our own Britbike forum member and moderator Graham Ham has come out with the third book in the Daisy’s Diaries series.
The third book is called Are we having fun yet?
In this book Graham with friends rides to rallies and meetings around Europe and you’ll enjoy reading about several Britbike members too.
Especially when Graham and NoNameMan goes to Sweden and Britbike museum on the Swedish meatball quest. You don’t want to miss that part of the trip. I could not stop reading it.
See all three books here. Graham’s books here

Well, it's not exactly a book as such like my copy of "Daisy's Diaries", it's a Kindle or Tinder, innit?

What's the right thing to do if I haven't ever kindled up?

Get a Kindle. Resistance is futile.
I've become a convert to it. Books are cheaper and don't take up valuable shelf space. The only thing it isn't good for is books with pictures as they are too small to really look at.
I enjoyed the first two editions and will certainly download this one.

There is a Kindle app for your computer. Once installed, just purchase and download the book. Use the Kindle app to open the download.

I don't think my computer (An HP EliteBook laptop with Linux) does "apps"??

Maybe I'm not up on the terminology... I thought that "apps" were smartphone things, iPhones and Androids and all like that. I've got a lot of useful stuff on my laptop but I don't think any of them are "apps"....?

Try the Kindle Cloud reader from Amazon. Linux apparently does not have a dedicated application for Kindle books. You can try Calibre , I'm pretty sure it will open Kindle books, and it installs in Ubuntu, and Mint, for sure.
Remind me at Suches, I can walk you through some options.

I don't do Amazon any more anyhow ... after averaging 70 orders per year for 8 years or so, probably $100K worth of stuff, I finally got tired of having their politics thrown in my face every time I logged on ... I'm not sending any more money that will promote their bigotry and divisiveness. Canceled my and Fay's account and history, so I'll have to find another way.

I'll come up with something. We need to do what we can to support the Starving English Authors group, and encourage more of the behavior of writing interesting stories down about Britbikes and what goes along with them!

Lannis,

I sort of agree with yez re Amazon. But, from an author's perspective they offer by far the best route to market and pay the author a far better margin than almost every other outlet.

So I'm sort of holding my nose whilst going with them ...

I read somewhere that if you physically owned all the books you can fit on a kindle, you'd need a library the size of ten football stadiums?

Or something like that ...

Kev with a bit of imagination you can..
Imagine that you open up one of The Daisy’s books on kindle using your tablet.
Put the tablet under the table if it works fine good if not then open up a second book on kindle and voila it works. If not just open the third book..
All you need is a bit of imagination. Maybe Granddad could draw a cartoon to show you.. 🤣👍

They're no good as a side-stand mat in a muddy field, either ... But hey ho.

Same place mine is ... buried in the depths of the deepest Amazon forest, where I no longer go ....

Maybe he has a .PDF copy or something that he can send so we can read it on our steam-powered computers? I'll be happy to contribute a few ale tokens to the Ramsgate chapter of the "Hunter Thompson Gonzo Journalist Fund" for the privilege .... !

Lannis lad, it seems I'm a star character in the book, and as payment I asked Graham for a copy, due to never seeing him anymore. So I have a legitimate excuse lad... beerchug
