Kindle (picture). Old habits die hard ;-)

My daughter passed this across to me.  The typo isn't mine but I feel the need to share.

The kicker is that I've truly done this myself ;-)

My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.

In the meantime, why not take pity on a starving author and visit my book sales page at http://stores.lulu.com/gyppo1

I have a Kindle and a pile of books.  There is room in my life for both.

Although I have used a Kindle as bookmark in a thick old paperback I appreciate the convenience of the Kindle for travelling.  I've no idea just how waterproof it is, but I've fished it from the pockets of a totally rain sodden jacket, on a day when I was soaked right through to my underpants, and found it still worked.  Yes, I could have gently eased apart the pages of a soaked paperback and read them too, as I have on occasion, but the little electronic buddy has quietly impressed me so far.  As I have never treated it to a case, just a thin stick-on screen protector, it's still agreeably slim.

So far I have never yet made the mistake of tapping the corner of a paperback and expecting it to show me a new page.  It may happen one day ;-)

When we travel we have to watch the van weight so he has to compensate for my book weight  ;D
