Reaching for Reacher...


2 years with my Kindle Paperwhite e-reader, and I have read only two books that were NOT in my Kindle.

One of my favorite authors is Lee Child, having read all 17 of the Jack Reacher series last Sept. I received notice the new Reacher book number 18, Personal, was out.  The library had no Kindle copy, but they did have one copy of Large Print, which is all I can read these days. I put my name on the hold list and was # 75.. This past week I received a call my book was ready for pickup.

Things I learned while reading a printed book
.
It takes 74 people five months to read one book... (Write that down, so you don't forget it...)

A book that is  9 x 7 in size and 2 inches thick requires 2 hands to hold it. (Kindle is 1/4 inch thick and almost weightless and can be held in one hand).

That same book is awkward to hold while reading through progressive tri-focals. (Kindle fits right under my double chins, easy to see)

The book caused my arthritis to  HURT in fingers, wrists, shoulder and elbows, ( I can read for 4 hours at one time with the Kindle, the book required frequent rest breaks),

CONCLUSION? when number 19 comes out, I will have to buy the book.

Do you have a favorite author that you have read every book they wrote? I have many.

PS... I had to DRIVE to the library, 4 miles of TRAFFIC with many traffic signals plus the GAS it cost me.
