Default Olympic Weightlifting. Book format

This is probably a quite stupid post and even more so as it´s my first here and a way of introducing myself. But so be it. Hi, I´m Peter, the stupid european!
After reading countless articles from Catalyst Athletics I decided to order Everetts complete guide to the lifts. I´ts now been a week since the book arrived and I´m thrilled to have found a straightforward and accessible way to learn the lifts.
There´s just one but. The format is a bit to "volumnious" for it to be practical in most situations. As I said, a bit stupid but so far I´ve spent more time adjusting the book, squirming, trying to fold, adjusting again and so on and on. So a thought struck me. Seeing as the Performance menu is in PDF. Would it be possible to be able to purchase the book in PDF as well? That way I would have alot more reading options. I could print the pages i wanted to read, print pages to bring to my sessions for reminders or read it on a portable electronic "thingy", and the book I could still use in situations where the format doesnt pose a problem. However most reading situations for me are when I´m on the train, bus or in the evenings before I go to bed so a few more "format options" would be a big help.
Anyway, just a little suggestion. I hope I didn´t make to much of a *** of myself in my first post.
Thanks again for a great book!

At this time, we don't have plans to release that book in electronic form, but it's not an impossibility.
