  1. Hmmm. It doesn’t work. It is not for free. Amazon still wants some money.

    Is the offer restricted to the UK?

  2. Bold move! I’ve already bought my copy (and tweeted about it!) but interested to hear your verdict on the results.

    Downloaded it, but I can’t open it. Using Galaxy Tab 7.7 with Kindle app installed.

    Nice idea, but no so great if you’re in China, where both fb and twitter are blocked 🙁

    Not available in India too due to copyright restrictions

  6. ERROR
    This Pay with a Tweet campaign does not exist 🙁 – ERRORCODE: 110

  7. I’m really enjoying reading Moods of Future Joys – inspiring me to further travels. I’ll pay for Mr. H’s work as that is part of the respect for the work of the author, traveller and adventurer that he is owed.

    it’s prompting me to download a completely different book about the advent of new media!

    nice idea though..

  9. Happy to lay my hands on this book. Been in my amazon wishlist for sometime. Was able to download it just fine in India!

  10. this is my facebook post,
    Awsome book, If your into adventure travel then you know who Alastair is, if not then you REALLY should read his books, Amazing bloke. he is my inspiration to get on my bike and ride.
    just thought i would let you know lol

  11. Very happy to purchase the book for Kindle – at £2 it was a bargain.

    ‘There are other Rivers’ is beautifully written and a compulsive read – I could not put it down and would recommend it to anyone as a book about travelling through life.

    This is not a book about a specific place, full of occasional descriptions of the interesting or unusual; this is a description of the journey, the ordinary and the thinking behind it.


  12. That giveaway *_* killed me.

  13. It’s not working for me, it’s told me it’s posted to my feed but when I looked it’s not not posted the tweet/link on my Twitter, it’s telling me I have access but it’s not giving me access…..

      I’m really sorry. This is an old and clearly buggy programme. Others seem to be fine so I am sorry you are having trouble.

    The link to the explanation of how to move it into the Kindle reader comes up as an error!
