I swore that I'd never get into reading Kindle books. Paper and ink all the way for me, baby!
My opinion of the Kindle was not improved upon acquaintance. It was clunky and hard to use. And ugly.
Then my hubby bequeathed his old ipod to me, and it had a Kindle app. I bought an ebook or two for it, and reading stuff on the ipod wasn't too bad.
Then I discovered the Kindle store on Amazon. Or, more specifically, the free books section.
Every old book that I've adored in my life is free on the Kindle. I found House of a Thousand Candles, and everything George MacDonald ever wrote, and GK Chesterton, and Dickens, and a jillion more. I keep thinking of new authors to look up.
The Kindle isn't half bad when you can get truckloads of free books. GOOD books, too.
