Last Christmas, my husband offered me a new Kindle as a gift. I was not so sure that it was what I wanted and decided to wait. I mulled over this for a while and finally tried Amazon's PC based Kindle. Their ploy worked and I was hooked. So I went online and sent off for this dandy little gadget. It arrived Monday, but I did not get home from yoga until after 8 p.m. I was tired and only tinkered with it for a short while. This morning, that was the first thing on my mind and I downloaded "Ahab's Wife". The feel of the Kindle is so right and so light weight. It is certainly easier than holding some paper books (think "John Adams" at a whopping 751 pages - I thought I was getting arthritis in my hands).
I have heard that textbooks can also be downloaded. Not that I need one, but it certainly seems like an improvement. Textbooks are like carrying around a load of bricks ...
