Ode to my Kindle

Jump to last reply

Well, it's really not an ode, maybe a paean, a panegyric, an encomium, a song of praise. I am an inveterate reader, and I'm kind of cheap, so that in the past, books were always a problem when I traveled.

I would load up on used books and then discard them as I read them. Loading up made my suitcase heavy, and discarding books---not trading them in--burned my cheap soul. Then I got my Kindle. I load looooong books ("The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich," "Inferno" by Max Hastings---NOT Dan Brown--and whatever I can get for free on Book Bub, as well as things I have read before but will read again, such as Dorothy Sayres and Ngaio Marsh.

I'm set for books, even for a really long trip, and I don't have to haul around a heavy suitcase.
