Growing up my Dad had his collection of Reader's Digest stored in the bathroom, along with the collection of coupon toilet paper that was purchased by pimping me out to go buy the limited 2 rolls with the coupon.
Before my first kindle ( I have 4, don't judge) I kept a book on the tank at all times. I also carried a book in my purse, car or gym bag. It's a sickness, I know.
I love the weight and smell of a real printed book. I love the portability of an e-book. Having a Kindle has not ended my purchasing of printed material.
In fact I was humiliated by my own cheapness at the Wilsonville Goodwill. I'd buy a book at Goodwill, than return it in a week, and so on and so forth. Until they changed their policy that books are not returnable. I was notified by a very kind woman who did a very good job of not giggling when she gave me a knowing yet sympathetic look.
G-Mama, Mama, aka Mother in law sent me the book "Fervent"
