I’ve done a lot more reading recently and it’s all due to an electronic device. No not the Kindle. I purchased a cheap Kindle model and then returned when I discovered I could read books on my iPod. I have an online account set up through the library and can get books quickly for free. It’s convenient to bring with to read anywhere. Some people may think the screen is too small, but you can adjust the settings to make the type bigger. The only problem with getting books through the library, you have only seven days to read the book before it is electronically returned. Sometimes in order to finish a book, I’ve have had to recheck it out several times and then wait to receive it, if there’s a waiting list. This happened a lot when I was reading the series “A Song of Ice and Fire” by George R.R. Martin. The books average almost a 1,000 pages each (but they were well worth the wait). Of course it’s not as much fun as reading a real book. But it’s quieter for the people around me. I tend to rattle and click the pages of real books, which some find annoying.
