FAR is Now Available for Kindle - Free

The FAR (Federal Acquisition Regulations) is now available for free in the Amazon Kindle Bookstore. With this version, you can highlight text, bookmark sections, and send quotes by email - features you're already familiar with if you use Kindle.

Now we can't say that this book will be something you want to read at bedtime (typical time to read: 92 hours and 49 minutes, 3,728 pages) and most people don't carry around a dedicated Kindle reader. But it might be handy to have as a reference tool - especially if you have Kindle on your smartphone. The version available for download is current through FAC (Federal Acquisition Circular) 2005-95 (January 19, 2017).

One thing that makes the Kindle version efficient is its integrated hyperlinks. For example, if you're reviewing the compensation cost principle to see if excise taxes on pension plan asset reversions or withdrawals are allowable, the cost principle refers you to another FAR section which, at a touch, will take you there.

The Kindle FAR can be accessed here.

Note, FAR has been available in the Apple iBook format for some time. If interested in that format, click here to download it for free from the Apple Store.
