My New Tablet

I signed up for an unexpected trip to Walmart in Rapid City, the other night. So after grabbing a few food items I went to the entertainment/electronics department. It cost more than I expected and more than the 1 I found on Amazon. But it’s a bit bigger and has more storage then my old tablet.

My old tablet died while I was still in Vegas. I missed being able to do some things on the tablet that I can’t do on my outdated laptop…like play canasta, backgammon, and farm heroes saga. I also miss reading free e-books. I still remember when I got my first Kindle years ago, and my friend Kathleen told me all about free e-books. I have been hooked ever since.

I will have to write to amazon and explain that I have a different e-reader to see if I can download some of the same books I had before. This morning while trying to get fictional books about the Amish all I could get was a message  saying that I already purchased the book. I also want the books by: Patricia Cornwall & Dean Koontz  that I had before. Today I found 2 books by: Harper Lee that I must read. I went to a play here in South Dakota, last month,  about her book “To Kill a Mockingbird “, and loved it. Now I must read the book, and Harper’s new one.

One nice thing about ebooks, is that you can read anything in public and nobody knows what you are reading. You can read trashy mind-numbing stuff all day long without hearing any comments about it being a waste of time. To be honest, what is your impression  of someone reading trashy romance novels?

Some people like my brother like real books that you hold in your hand and turn a page. My brother built a library/office in his home and it’s actually 1 of my favorite rooms in his house. But I like e-readers too. With my lifestyle, it’s easier to carry thousands of books around in my purse on my tablet. I can travel easier with my e-reader then my brother can with his library.
