THERE IS KINDNESS IN A KINDLE

As an avid reader I received my Father's Day gift from my daughter and son-in-law with some apprehension. Would I be able to switch habits of over 60 years and read from a Kindle instead of a regular book?

The quick answer is that I have. All of a sudden it has become my new best friend. I take it with me to the beach and keep it beside me in my home. I read it soon after I awake and right before going to sleep. I find it fascinating. Between my home and office I must have 1500 books accumulated over a lifetime. They sit in place and acquire dust. My Kindle can store that many. This little, light weight piece of technology is a heavy weight.

And it remembers my place-no book mark needed. And it allows me to jump from book to book as is my habit. And the download is complete in mini seconds.And when I travel it is a lot easier than schlepping two hard covers and three soft covers and a variety of magazines. All I have to take is my Kindle.

And best of all whenever I read I think about my lovely daughter and her wonderful husband. Do you think that is why they bought me such a generous gift? I sure hope so.

Bye For Now,

Bill
