I never thought I'd EVER do this, I always said I prefer the feel and smell of "real" paper books. But after purchasing and reading the 6th. new book in a series I changed my mind.

I absolutely love the series "Clan of the Cave Bear" by Jean M. Auel, and the newest addition came out not long ago. I read in bed every night, and with some arthritis combined with fibromyalgia combined with tendonitis, I have trouble holding onto heavy books without some hurting going on. So..... I only get paperbacks.

When I went to purchase the paperback for this new book, it only came in a LARGE size paperback, quite heavy with many pages. I read through the whole thing and enjoyed it, but nightly I had trouble with my hands and wrists because the book was so heavy.

THAT, my freinds, is what finally made my mind up about getting an e-Reader. Sis Pammie was also thinking of getting one, so we went shopping the other night and both got the Kobo "Touch". We compared to Sony and others, but this is the one we both preferred for size and weight. So far I've loaded 7 books into it and I love it!

The cover I chose (red leather, red being my favourite colour) has a built in reading light for night reading. And that same night, we stopped at a library to pay $12 for a yearly fee, so now we can even load books into our e-Readers from there. Groovy coolness!

Even an old leopard can change her spots, apparently.

Call me "updated", with my Kobo e-Reader and my Smartphone. Holy heck.

I hope you are all doing well, take good care of each other!

Love Jude
