Reminiscing On Days Past: Keeping Reading Alive in Wake of Technological Takeover

As a youth, I found no joy greater than curling up in a corner with a great book. My family would often tease that, outside of my tom boy outdoor adventures , I was permanently attached to a book at any given moment. Furthermore, when I was in reading mode, in order to capture my attention it would have to be pried from my hands or some natural disaster would have to occur.

What is a Kindle?

Everyone is raving and talking about this new device that is available at amazon called the "KINDLE" it cost about $139 and you can use it to download anything from books to newspapers from all around the world, for a fraction of the sales price, instantly. Will this device make hard cover and paperback books obsolete? I don't truly know the answer to this question but, let's just say that everyone in the world brought a Kindle then were those that leave the hand held books, magazines and newspapers. As for me, you can call me old fashion because, I love to sitting in my tub and read a good book and turn the pages one by one. All this tech stuff seems to be making things easier for some people to be a bit more devices savvy but, at the same time we are becoming lazier as a person each...
