k20 users manual

After having had the k20 for a few years now , to find my way around the whole system is still a pain sometimes. I have a CD disc as the users manual which is slow to scroll through which doesn't help. Some one on this forum kindly advised me to download the CD on to the computer and then I could click the pointer and be directed on to page numbers and/or chapters. This worked fine but for some reason beyond me doesn't do so now [ click on the chapters that is.].

I was thinking about buying a book on digital photography to help , particularly on the K20 . What would readers recommend ?

I am not young , mostly used a MX in my life. Digital is new format to me. I shan't take it very far but film is too expensive now and digital is my sole photographic hobby now.

Many thanks.

Two books that come to mind are:

Magic Lantern Guides: Pentax K20D

Pentax K20D Book by Yvon Bourque

FWIW I downloaded the manual as a .pdf file and have it on my phone, tablet and laptop for easy reference.

K20 Guide.

Have downloaded the Bourague book. Really great text makes one realise just how poor the manual is. Wish I'd had this when I bought the camera ! Would have saved a lot of trouble. Thanks again.
