It's ... Magic!
When Dan started talking about the Kindle, I yeah-yeahed it for awhile, but did not hesitate to put in my order when the one-click-buying began. Now I love it! I took it with me when volunteering at the local endurance ride last week, where my task was to hold cows and calves at bay at a remote gate, and read in between riders about Younger Next Year; not a page blowing away in the wind and without book mark.
My local geek found lots of great, free books here, and there has been no stopping us since. How can one stand at one's computer and have a book appear into your hands, as if by magic! How cool a device this is! It has been especially welcome because I have been suffering this nasty cold for a week, and finally decided to give in and spend some serious time on the couch, reading, trying to get well. This cold is very ill timed as I recently picked up my professionally tuned-up bicycle, and she is hanging in the garage, her wheels aquiver in wanting to get out for a ride. Sometime next week, I hope.
