You poor thing. I love proper books - the look, the feel, the smell.

I know I could have my King James Bible in digital format but it wouldn't have "To Henrietta on her 10th birthday, with lots of love from Nanna Smith" written on the fly leaf.

I wouldn't have a Kindle if you paid me.

A Kindle was the last thing I ever wanted too---- because I love the look and feel of a REAL book. I cried and cried when Julius Caesar burned the Alexandria Library in 48 BC. even though they were written on papyrus and weren't REAL books.

But as my eyesight went wonky and my inability to hold a book up to read I had to 'cave' (pun intended) and get a Kindle. Either that or get audio books or not read.

I hate my Kindle but I also love it. Let's hope you never have to resort to one.

That's what I was thinking, but do we know that for sure?
