Middle of January 2016

Hard to believe it is the middle of January already!!  Where did the time go!  It has been a different winter, warmer, less snow, more rain, which made it drearier than normal so far.  Sounds blah right?  I bet you can tell it is Saturday, I was up at 4:00 am, tummy was rumbling away to beat the band.  So, dishes done, wood in, breakfast all by 9 o’clock.  I was ready for a morning nap by 10, so I took my phone, which has the Kobo reading ap on it, and got into a book before drifting off.

I was reading an article by someone – don’t ask me who, but if I think of it, I will let you know, it was on ELLO, about ereading, this individual is a Kindle person, started at the beginning of the switch over, and at this time, while e reading, is also holding fast on to paper books.  I started with a KOBO e reader, where you plugged it into your computer to download the book onto the reader, and can save them on a card as well.  I have purchased over 200 hundred books. I also use my local library’s ebooks, which I can borrow and return for free.  I told myself I was doing it to save the trees, and also I have limited room in the house for books.  Wherever would I put two hundred books????  The thing that bothers me, is I have purchased them, but I can’t share them.  That part doesn’t seem fair?  I could donate them to my library?  I have the KOBO ap on my phone and my computer and my tablet, I think you are allowed 3 devices.  I could share them with my sister and brother? They are both retired and use paper books as well as e books.  Sometimes, especially if it is a favourite author, and there is a new book, I think about getting it from the library as I still remember the feeling of cracking open the book, reading the first page and loving the story.  You don’t get that with an ereader, now we can share where we are in the book on Facebook, post instant reviews and all that which is cool, pros and cons to both I guess, options right?  Have a great day, let’s see if I can add a picture of my daughter’s puppy to be…Hudson
