It was a gorgeous morning at the lake. Boucle and I had our first outing this year.
As we approached the beach, we spotted this wonderful goose family. We stayed far back, and I kept sweetie-pie on the leash.
The lake was as it always is so early in the morning….peaceful, with beautiful birds…….
….it was as if winter never happened!……
…finally we had a real spring day…..
….the afternoon was fairly warm……
…and the first crocuses finally bloomed……..
I started Emma four years ago. Emma the paperbook. Would read for about 1/2 hour in the evenings. Mostly in winter.
Summer would come, and wouldn’t pick it up at all. Read other books in between.
I bought a Kobo 2 weeks ago. Bam! Read the rest on the Kobo to the end. Took just a few days.
I am old school and love physical books, and newspapers.
But I stopped having the newspaper delivered a couple of years ago when I acquired a tablet. Didn’t feel there was any substantial content in the paper papers anymore.
And now I have gone to the dark side.
I LOVED reading the book Emma on the Kobo. No fiddling with pages. Easy to just place the Kobo on one spot, and with a gentle swipe, am on to the next page. And I love that I can adjust the brightness and the font size. I think why Emma the paper book took so long was because the font was teeny tiny. Though I didn’t realize it at the time.
I will miss the paper paper books. They are warm and comforting, especially on rainy or stormy days.
But now….I am a convert. For any U.S. friends, the Kobo is similar to the Kindle.
