We are very proud of the kiddos.
They have an addiction -but it’s a good one. Just not very convenient for living in a non-English speaking country.
They LOVE reading!
We brought back a suitcase FULL of books from our recent visit to the States. Lots of excited faces at seeing some titles they have been anticipating getting their hands on.
The problem is we have quite an accumulation of books in our home. I sure do miss having a library to visit and check books out of.
It’s looking like we may have to consider an electronic format for their reading. Any suggestions?
I must admit that I am not too keen on the idea of not reading a physical book with it’s pages and all. But, reading is important and a love of reading is a valuable asset. So, that seems like the way to go.
We have more than enough to keep Ginger Kitty reading physical books as she is an emerging reader. Austin and India are very well established in their reading habits so I don’t worry about that. It’s just that I have enjoyed our having a simpler way of life here -minus a lot of gadgets.
Oh well. Keep moving forward. Right?
BUILD A SHED.HA HA
Personally, I’m a huge fan of the kindle. The screen is not backlit, so it’s extremely easy on the eyes. I got one for my sister, since she loves to read but has to move every three years (and lives in a foreign country), so a lot of books are out of the question. She loves it, as well. It’s easy to use and inexpensive, as far as e-readers go. The only drawback, for me, is that it isn’t compatible with the e-reader format that the Society uses (although it can use .pdf files, it’s still a compromise); but I just use my laptop for that.
