Climbers and E-readers

There's been a climbing story sitting on my hard drive for years now (excerpts appeared on this forum before). I'm likely going to release it as a free download e-book, but my question is this:

Given it's a story exclusively for climbers, how many of you out there use e-readers or other exclusively online sources? I'm just curious to know how many climbers out there are looking at climbing related things online beyond Chockstone.

If a story is released that is just a fictional fairy tale for climbers, chock full of jokes and has no informational or instructional value, will it be of interest? And who will be in a position to download and view it if it's kindle or similar?

Thoughts?

For sure - kindle or iPad. Go for ePub format for greatest comparability. I have an Alpinist digital only subscription - cost about 30 bucks a year. Also have a selection of climbing related audio books - great for the car

Maybe throw it up on lulu or something for those that would like a hard copy?

Yes, I'd be interested. epub is the way to go, then it can be read on any ereader.

E-readers are a type of aid.
