Viet Nam book now on Kindle

As I have mentioned before, I use Booksie to try out ideas. One was a series of articles/travelogues on travels through Vietnam during parts of 2018-2020. Covid put a dampener on all that but I thought to put it up as a book on Kindle anyway.

Most of the work was published here first. I removed it when I published on Kindle as, slim chances as it might be, trying to sell it while giving it away free elsewhere seemed overly hopeful. But for the hundreds who read the stories while they were here, thanks for your patronage and comments and hope you enjoyed the free read.

For all others, if you are inspired to read more, they are all up here: Thanks again!
