Sorry about my long winter absence. I suspended all writing while going through several health issues. Reading has been continuing throughout this time and I have enjoyed many fine reads. I have also succeeded in getting my name on a book. Note: I didn’t say published.*
The Wonders of a Kindle! As I’ve stated before I didn’t think I needed or wanted a Kindle reader; as I volunteer at a library and thus have an abundance of books available to me. However no one had ever mentioned ‘Amazon Prime’. With ‘Prime’ I can borrow one kindle book a month, free. I can purchase kindle books for less, I can watch movies, some free (when I can make streaming, stream), and free 2nd day shipping on Amazon orders (usually three days where I live). Now to you city folks this may not seem very special, in fact it may seem expensive as ‘Prime’ has a price but just borrow eight, $9.00 books and that’s covered. Not to mention fast, free shipping of practically anything and everything you need. Obviously, I don’t have a Barnes and Noble or any other store just around the corner.
Some of the books I’ve read this winter:
Off the Beaten Path by Dennis Ogden
Steve’s Adventures with the Peace Corps by Steve Hunsicker
Off the Leash by Jean Ellen Whatley.
