E Reader!

Okay, I took the plunge and got a Kindle!  It is one of the cheaper ones, the Kindle Touch. Also got a great free short story from Amazon, The Imaginary Friend By Kelly Hashway.

I really didn't think I would like them.  My son brought one with him when he came home over Easter and got me interested.  I still love real books, but, I can't put this thing down.  It even does text to speech!  It's  not good for fiction, too computer sounding, but for text books and some of the free books on writing books from Amazon, it's pretty neat while doing dishes or other tasks around the house.  It does have an earphone jack.  Amazon has a ton of free books too! 

Along with our local library having downloadable audio books through the R.E.A.D.S. program, they also have Kindle books you can check out.  This is so neat!!!

So,  moving into the 'E-Age' is kinda neat.  (does the term 'E-Age' exist, or have I named an era?)

  1. Enjoy your Kindle, Rick. I've had my for a year and four months now. I still read more print books, but I do enjoy my Kindle. And yes, there are so many free and inexpensive ebooks out there.

    Enjoy The Imaginary Friend. :)
