Last year hubby and I bought iPads. My-oh-my, they are fabulous. They are small, portable, easy to use . . . . I could go on and on, but until I am on the Apple payroll, that is probably enough for now!
I read the newspaper on my iPad, as well as blogs, the weather, sewing sites etc., etc., etc., One of the downsides though, has been that I have lost my 'read'. I am so used to reading small 'read-bites' (a bit like 'sound-bites', but written!) that I have had problems concentrating on anything longer. Now this is a real shame as I love reading. I have a voracious reading appetite, and in the past have always had a book (or two) in my hand, bag, by the bed, next to the sofa, etc. I particularly enjoy mysteries (I was a Police Office for many years int he UK, some habits are hard to break!) as well as travel journals, historical novels, gardening books - pretty much any written word.
The solution to this problem - was the trip to Tofino. A room that does not have a TV and barely has WiFi soon got me back on track :o)
I am happy to report that I finished this book whilst I was away . . .
And am now happily ensconced in this!
