Agreed ........... except there wouldn't be any room in "Petal" if we had to carry real books with us! I bought my Kindle around June last year and I now have 175 "archived" (i.e. those I have read) and 25 more ready to go. In a similar period Helen has read another 30 or so on her iPad! allthumbz

That's why we have them. up!

NOT off topic a quote from Morecambe and Wise:

Ernie - "Have you got the scrolls?"

Eric - "No. I always walk this way!"


Best regards,

Had all good intentions of using the iPad for reading when on my travels - and take a paperback! shrugg

Christmas Presents

Post by Dave 418 on Tue Dec 04, 2012 8:32 pm

confused3 I agree about the book thing. A book has pages that turn and smells all paper like. You can tell the best bits when you re-read them by the thumb prints. Some smart relative of mine bought me a plastic cube with a ball in it last year. Apart from ratling and driving me nuts I aint got a clue what to do with it. The dog cant even chew it. snigger My daughter says its suposed to be maze. shrugg Please just give me a book token, it gives me an excuse to spend the day in the book shop at peace and buy a book of my choice. They even have coffee shops in book stores now. good2

Some of the language I hear from the younger generation nowadays, that might be a good thing. I was taught that swearing only made up for a lack of vocabulary and that seems to be about right. censored!
