Bill, the Galactic Hero by Harry Harrison
Chapters 1-3

The first Proper Book I'm reading on my Kindle, after buying it half by accident. It's the novel on which Alex Cox's Kickstarter (which I backed) is based, so it seemed a bright idea to read it. And it's good.

It's part of Gollancz's SF Gateway series, which, as they describe in the introduction, are ebooks of titles that might not see print in traditional circumstances, allowing readers access to things they might otherwise have to root around in endless second-hand shops in a vain hope of finding, if they even heard about them in the first place. Or, to put it another way, the kind of thing that makes the current explosion in ereaders and digital books actually worthwhile.
