Well, it’s that time of year again when the world’s heater is turned up to SCORCHING in the southeast and we all find the best way to deal with sweat, humidity, sun…did I mention sweat? Anyway, I am taking home lots of books to read, though not in the traditional sense. I’m checking out one of our library’s eReaders so I can take home a very slim machine packed full of books. Now, don’t get me wrong…I’m not going over to the e-side but, when traveling with a limited amount of space (two cats and their stuff and my stuff takes up a lot of room in a coupe), eReaders are the answer. I still enjoy the act of opening a book, the lovely paper smell wafting upward, listening to the flutter of turning the pages, hanging onto every word…ah bliss!!! A computer screen is just not a great permanent substitute.
If anyone reading this blog has any good book selections to suggest, please do so. I’m always looking for the “next big thing”. Have a fantastic summer and happy reading!!!
