I finished two books this week. A historical romance by Susanna Kearsley called The Winter Sea. It was recommended by the authors Father..he thought I would enjoy it and I did. I loaded it on my Kindle Fire. Getting used to reading on the Fire has a few drawbacks..I am always afraid I am going to drop it when I fall asleep reading. I do like that I can read in the dark. I also like being able to take books and games with me where ever I go..the Fire is small enough that it fits in my parka pocket during the winter. Sometimes I read askew..and the screen flips..and sometimes I have a hard time getting to the next page. Tap Tap Tap…finger drag.
I borrowed The Hunger Games by Susanne Collins from my Grandson Noah. I asked him what he was reading, he told me and his Mom suggested that I read it also. So I did. What a great book..it kept me interested throughout and I hope he will share the rest of the series with me or I will have to hop on over to Amazon and load it on my Kindle Fire.
I have been reading a book about a blizzard in 1888 called The Children’s Blizzard by David Laskin. It is one of those books that has so many characters that an old lady like me has a hard time remembering them all so I made myself a cheat sheet..listing the characters and what was memorable about them. I have been reading this book off and on since last summer.
I have not downloaded e-books from the Library yet..but I have been there and looked around. So far almost everything on my Kindle Fire has been free downloads.
I used to buy all my books from garage sales..I hate to admit the number of books I have in this house..just incase I need something to read. I am most likely a book hoarder. Yes, I said that right out loud. I have drawers full of books..not just one or two..many. I have books hidden all over the house..much like I suppose that someone with an alcohol problem would hide a bottle of whiskey. I have a reading problem. At least the Kindle Fire will hold lots of books for me to read without taking up drawer space:)
