I'm happy to announce that Despite Lupus is now available on Kindle! Click here, as Amazon says, to start reading Despite Lupus is less than a minute!
Of course, the book is still available in hard copy - on this site and on Amazon.com.
What IS Kindle, you ask? It's Amazon's Wireless Reading Device. It's about the height of a book, although thinner than most, at just 1/3 of an inch thick. It's weight? Only 10.2 ounces, which is lighter than a typical paperback.
