Heading home


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!!!
