I am enjoying my Kindle, however I still haven't bought any e-books off of Amazon. I've merely downloaded free books if I see anything interesting. Most of the free limited promotional books are either Christian themed, sex laden or spooky looking. I haven't seen any books by current popular authors, even their old books. Still, it's OK because I've got about a hundred books (95% classics) uploaded on my Kindle.
I did want to read Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford because so many of you recommended it.
I was looking at the Hawaii Library System online website and found that I could put a hold/save on a book. Just for fun, I put a hold on Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. There was a LONG wait list. I figured I'd get to read it next year, but lo and behold, I got a card in the mail a month later saying it was ready for pick up.
While at the library to pick up the book, I checked the Friends of the Library second hand book shelf. Paperbacks were on sale for 50 cents a book. I bought these six books for $3.00 AND I can loan them to my friends when I'm done!
So there you have it. I like my Kindle, but I still love my library!
Oh dear! I hope you authors out there won't be upset with me. I'm going to curl up with Mr. Ford's book now and finish it as quickly as I can so that the next person in queue will get it faster. (I'll have something to say about this book later.)
