But PDFs? They cost the same, sometimes MORE, than print books. That's just wrong.
If you want the guide, gifted to you, then we can work something out. A trade, maybe?
I only ever buy the digital ones on sale. But as it is, most of them these days aren't PDFs but are websites instead. Handy for maps when they allow tagging and tracking of collectibles, etc. Sure books can provided spaces to write such information, but I absolutely abhor defacing books in any manner, even when they are created with expectation of you doing so.
As for a trade, I don't have anything worth $2.49.
