  1. Enjoy reading, thank heavens for Amazon and the local library and sad to say E-books although it isn’t quite the same reading from a computer screen rather than holding a book not to mention the smell.

    • ahhhh E-books… love the idea but for me as well, not the same. Love the paper, the feel and just the pure enjoyment of holding a book… maybe one day I’ll get used to the e-book but my Kindle reader is still used only once…
