My Beloved Kindle

25 11 2011

I’m a reader and I need a book on the go at all times.  I learnt my lesson when living in Houston that lugging suitcases full of books back and forth when traveling is just not reasonable.

Luckily, Joe bought me a Kindle for my birthday before we moved to Africa.

And thank goodness…

There is not an English book to be bought in Port Gentil.

I go on, buy a book and it appears on my Kindle – or I connect my Kindle to a data network and do it directly from there.  Easy.

While nothing replaces the feel and smell of a ‘real’ book, I’m not sure what I would have done without my Kindle this year, especially in those early days in the hotel with nothing but CNN and time on my hands.
