It is a pain to get anything but a kindle book into the kindle app. You want to get an epub or PDF reader for the blackberry and then get either the epub or Pdf version of the book.

Does anyone know if buying the single hardcover offers more in way of text & pic material or broken down into the 3 seperate soft cover offers more? Does either format have color pictures?

Asking as was thinking of sharing w/ other beekeepers & the color pics might lead em in more. Also the 3 soft cover series has beginner book & that would not overwhelm one starting out.

The three softcovers are not only the exact same material they have the exact same page numbers for the exact same material.  None have color pictures.

My thinking was I wanted a small paperback beginners book, but that was the same as volume I of the book...

Thanks Michael, that helps me go for the 3 Vols & will lend them to my expanding local bee circle of urban bee keeping/rescuing friends.
