My birthday is coming up and my darling husband got me a new Kindle. The old one died a horrible death on a Fedex journey back home after being left behind on a trip. I LOVE it. Absolutely fabulous! There is something about hauling around 80 gazillion books that appeals to me. I’m an avid book reader and read fast, but the minimalist in me never liked having scads of books all over the house collecting dust, attracting bugs, and serving as symbols of dead trees.
Another thing I like about Kindle is that I don’t have to commit to what I might want to read 2 weeks from now. Trying to decide which book or books to bring when traveling always ends up making me rip my hair out. Now I can bring them all. Since I tend to have the attention span of a chipmunk this is a good thing.
It’s time to start scouring the Project Gutenberg website for some more free e-books. Over 33,000 books and counting, what a treasure trove.
Thank you Mr. Husband, you da Man!!!
