I'm having a long term relationship with my Kindle.. I even use the Kindle App on my Ipad. I have no complaints and I'll be faithful until something better comes along.

The following Wall Street Journal article was sent to me by my son. He thought I would appreciate it...I do, but can't relate at all.

See what you think!

All books on this blog can be bought in any form directly from the Amazon Search Box located in the Sidebar.


  1. Hi Joyce - I had seen this article. I too really love my Kindle Fire. I know people lament the decline of paper books and therefore disparage the E - readers.

    I find the dictionary function indispensable. As I read a lot of history I find the ability to looks things up as I read addicting.

    One thing that I lament is the decline of the independent book store. There is still one great one and a few not so great ones near where I live, however.

    Amazon is also convenient but I would rather buy from an independent then a large corporation.

    1. What I do now is look up stuff on my phone(which I keep on my person at all times) ;) I'm like Brian and I read a lot of history and I want to look up more information a LOT.

  2. I agree about the Indie book stores..One near me has added a huge gift and toy department which is larger than the book section...kind of a sad commentary.
    Another book store on Martha's Vineyard relocated to smaller quarters and seems to be doing well.. They are a real tourist attraction so that helps.

  3. I've been on the fence about buying a Kindle for a long while now. A few new ones will be on the market soon (Oct 1st I believe?)and I'll probably crack and get one then.

    Speaking of indie books/e-readers Indiebound has an e-reader app now. I don't know how it works exactly but I thought I'd throw that out there.

    I'm in the market for an e-reader mostly because I've been approved to review some books on Edleweiss and NetGalley and I have no interest in sitting at my computer to read them in an Adobe format. Zzzz, no thanks! ;)

    1. There are so many e book choices available now and all reasonably priced. Try different ones before you make a decision. I like instant gratification so getting a book in a few seconds makes me very happy!I
      You'll find the kindle very user friendly when downloading from sites like Netgalley.
      THANKYOU for the Indie App information too.

    2. Thankyou for following! Let me know if you like the Kindle....
