Full Free Digital Version Of Jim's Book


I have to admit that I am still a bit of a sucker for reading things made out of paper, but I routinely wish that Ctrl+F worked on them. It's a good argument for having digitized, searchable versions of books on the web. I gave permission for that to happen to This Gaming Life a long time ago, and I've just discovered that it has now been uploaded to the net.

It's a book about the relationship between gamers and the games they play, and it's a book dominated by experiences with PC games. You'd like it. You can still buy those beautifully papery versions here in the US and here in Europe.
