I think that I have mentioned that a couple of months ago I started reading the “Hamish Macbeth” series written by MC Beaton; I have been doing so on my iPad. I am currently reading the seventh book in the series, having checked each out digitally from the Dekalb library system. Last night I dusted off the olde Kindle, plugged it in since the battery was spent, and started using it to read. I had forgotten what a great device a Kindle is for books which do not have accompanying pictures.
Things that I cannot locate in my house currently
– flat cheese grater
– ice pack holder
– pill box, you know the type in which you put a day’s worth of pills
I’m struggling with a choice. Do I continue to feed the Amazon beast by purchasing some books, the type which cannot be checked out of a library, or do I support the local bookseller? There are three puzzle books in the Murdle series, which if purchased from Amazon would cost me $35, and if purchased from the local bookseller would cost me $47. If I were earning my old salary I’d definitely throw the local shop a bone, but $12 is $12, and is nothing at which to sneeze when your income is $0.
It was my turn to provide food last night. Even though I have been doing a lot of cooking of late, I wasn’t in the mood yesterday so Betsy and I had Aldi pizza and salad.
