    Neil commented on his blog that the last two pages are in reverse order.

      I'm just curious to hear what the reading experience was like for people who tend to read more novels or short stories online. I'm nowhere near as versed in online presentation of text as some people I know, so it would be nice to hear from people who make online stories a larger part of their regular reading material. The 'American Gods' online reader format definitely didn't impress me much.

        (had to sign in)I have it in hardback, so didn't try to read it online. I do have some books and stories on my drive (from Fictionwise) that are no longer available in other form, but I'm looking for a reasonably-priced reader. I spend a lot of time at the computer already and I have to rest in the recliner a lot to balance it out.
